Lola's Story...
Lola is a 20 lb 3 year old Boston Terrier being fostered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Her large dark eyes are in dramatic contrast to her white face, especially with the playful pirate patch over her right eye. Coupled with her bat-like ears and soft fur coat, her Boston energy and endless charm, it’s love at first sight for anyone meeting her. Having come from a loving home, Lola knows all about loving, which makes her a very lovable, sweet, and playful companion. And although she loves to play with her foster family, she hasn’t quite learned the joy of playing with toys yet. Extremely affectionate, she loves giving kisses, getting cuddled and being held. As much as she adores her people and revels in being near them, she is also content to remain on her own for up to 8 hours if needed (she is both house and wire crate trained).

Highly intelligent, Lola is polite and respectful indoors, and knows all her basic commands: sit, stay, come, lie down, shake a paw, and show me your belly. She also takes direction well and catches on very quickly – especially when her favourite treats: carrots, chicken and cheese are involved. She knows where her bed is and sleeps there every night, but would gladly sleep in bed with her fosters if they issued her an invitation.

She rides well in the car and will sit either in the back or in the passenger seat with her seatbelt fastened while she looks out the window and enjoys the trip.
Being a very fast eater, she fares better with a Kong in her food dish or a food puzzle to challenge her. While she gets along with most people, Lola is wary at first of large strange men, but then quickly warms up. She tends to get overly excited and act reactively towards other dogs on her walks, but her foster mom has been working to redirect her behaviour using her favourite cheese treats and positive reinforcement. She uses this same technique to teach an overly eager Lola that jumping on people is not polite, and that calmness is the best way to get attention.

Several times a week, she accompanies her foster mom to work, and although she barks when strangers come to the door, she really just wants to say hello and give them some kisses before curling up for a nap. And because loving Lola suffers from severe anxiety, she is currently on medication to reduce this anxiety and calm her.

For her to thrive and grow, Lola must be adopted into an adult-only home (no children or pets, please) with a securely fenced yard and loving and patient pet parents committed to providing her with the structure, routine and positive reinforcement she needs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lola, a Arnprior Boston Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boston Terrier for sale in Arnprior, or seeking a Boston Terrier dog from a breeder in Arnprior.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Arnprior already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Arnprior breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boston Terrier breeders who help with Boston Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Arnprior paves the way for another one to be saved.
