From endangered stray in need to a lucky girl indeed! When a rural mailman was driving through a vast stretch of empty desert, they just so happened to spot a squirming puppy trapped in a cactus patch on the side of the desolate road. Once safely plucked out of the mess and delivered to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, Lanakai had loads of people hard at work to remove hundreds of cactus spines. She was covered from head to toe! Although she was uncomfortable, hungry and very thirsty, Lanakai is now feeling fantastic and owes her life to the kindness and keen eyes of a guardian angel delivering the mail. Now she needs one more friend to complete her happily ever after story. Could you show Lanakai the comforts of being a pampered companion?)
