Photo of depressed dog goes viral, helps her find foster home

A dog who has become known as the "saddest dog in the world" after she was returned to a rescue organization has found a new home.

Lana was first rescued after being found as a small puppy.

However, according to Storyful, she was returned to the boarding kennels after an unsuccessful adoption.

Now, a photo of the depressed dog, which was posted to the Facebook pages of Rescue Dogs Match and Mighty Mutts, has encouraged a foster home to open their doors to Lana.

The original photo of Lana was shared on October 24, and an update with a much happier photo attached was posted to Facebook on November 2.
