Meet Banana Bread, also known as “Nanner!” Banana Bread was found roaming the streets of Kayenta, Arizona, alone and scared. A tourist in the area picked her up and called Underdog for help. Luckily, we had a means of transport in the area, and Nanner was able to hitch a ride to Moab.

At the Underdog Animal Rescue and Rehab Ranch, Nanner was very friendly with other dogs and sweet with her caregivers, though reluctant to be handled. A few weeks ago, Nanner went home as a foster with our founder, Katy Gullette, who was taken with her.

“Banana Bread has quickly learned to be a house dog,” Katy said. “She gets along with every dog in the home as well as those we have encountered elsewhere.”

A little bit of her shyness remains, but as soon as Banana Bread feels confident that she is doing what you want her to do, she learns new things quickly. Nanner loves toys, running through the puppy pool on hot days, and tolerates baths. She has been hanging out in the Underdog office for the last week and is always happy to meet new dogs and people or to just nap under a desk. She is a delightful dog with a wonderful “snarl” smile that everyone loves to see.

Banana Bread would make a great addition to a family or anyone wanting a loving companion. She appears to be a husky-shepherd mix, though we can never really know for sure. Nanner is fully vaccinated, spayed, and right around 45 pounds at about 2 years old.
