Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!
What is the reason you are looking to give this medication?
Is your dog on any other medications?
She was adopted by a friend, really scared of humans and now my friend doesn't want her so I want to take her to my home but no one can catch her. She will come to me for food as I feed her often.
She is not on any other medications.
Alprazolam / xanax is a medication that can be considered for anxiety in dogs.

It does have side effects - including excessive sedation and loss of motor control.
Dosing and other important information is included in the link above if you and your veterinarian feel this is a good choice for your dog.
