LORAIN, OH (WOIO) -

A Lorain police humane officer is looking for someone to adopt a traumatized dog.

Leona is a four-year-old Rotty/Mastiff mix. The dog was shot in Cuyahoga County and rescued from the Cleveland Kennel and brought to the Friendship Animal Protective League.

Her right front leg had to be amputated and one toe on her left front foot was shot off. She is recovering well and is extremely strong. She is fearful of strangers and gets defensive to the point of lunging at them.

She seems to be overly sensitive to fear or anxiousness in people.

She would need a very experienced large dog owner:

  • Single dog home
  • No young children
  • Minimal stairs
  • Large vehicle to travel in

The humane officer said once Leona trusts you she is loving and playful. If interested in giving her a good home, contact Friendship APL and ask to speak with the executive manager.
