Days ago, a stray dog was wandering around La Porte, Texas, when she decided to enter a family's porch to rest. She sat in the doorway and looked out the front door for someone. Seeing that no one was there, she lay down and laid her head on the welcome mat, and waited.
After the family found out there was a dog outside, they gave her food and water, then decided to call the This Is Houston rescue group for help. Then hours and hours passed, and the dog continued to rest on the porch.
This is Houston tagged Kourtney Crenshaw in a post about the dog, nicknamed Lila, on Facebook. Once the rescuer saw the photo of the dog, she knew that she could not leave her in the streets for another minute.
Lila looked very happy when Crenshaw got home. When Crenshaw arrived she was a bit nervous, but she immediately let the dog smell her, then the dog ended up licking her face. She didn't have a leash, so she picked her up, got in the car, and went home.
Crenshaw also said the dog was ready to be rescued. She was very scared, so it was easy to gain her trust and save her. Lila went to the vet, who determined that she was a 5 or 6 month old Australian Shepherd. She lost a lot of hair and had irritated skin but she is receiving antibiotics and medicated baths to make her feel better.
Lila now lives in a comfortable home where she receives love and care. She loves massages, but more than anything she loves food. Crenshaw is working hard to get Lila back on track so they can get her a permanent home.
