A one-year-old dog was left at the doorstep of a local animal care and control center — and is now looking for a forever home.
Laa-Laa is a pit bull mix who was abandoned at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The 50-pound dog was brought inside the center as she cowered and trembled, according to the center.

The center told Fox News Digital that the team quickly tried to make Laa-Laa feel comfortable by giving her treats and affection.
But nothing seemed to work.
The center speculates that she had very little socialization during her first year of life.
Due to this, Laa-Laa continues to be a nervous dog and is seeking a caring and loving home — one that will be patient with her as she opens up and develops.

Laa-Laa is making progress, and the staff has seen her personality start to shine through when she’s given affection and socialization with others.
The young dog likes to take slow walks and will sniff everything in sight, the organization said.
She can also be coaxed into giving a bit of a tail wag if she’s spoken to kindly.
