Lulu is a smart, sweet, affectionate girl who is very devoted to her people. To see her run in an open field is to watch pure animal joy. While she has settled into a happy middle age and is generally mellow (spending her afternoons cozied up in a soft bed or the sunshine), she still has bursts of her younger goofball self and loves to take walks and play in the yard.  Lulu prefers women to men, and is definitely a lady's dog, though she has plenty of room in her heart for the men who treat ladies like Lulu with kindly and patiently.  She also loves to spend time with other dogs, and has done so in doggie daycare, where she thrives!  She also loves popcorn (and catching it mid-air) and fetching sticks.

 

Lulu is usually nervous/shy in new situations, but once she has made a connection with her human, she is incredibly sweet and affectionate; she tends to make those connections fairly easily (usually with women) and has won hearts at day care, the vet's office, obedience class, etc.

In 2015, Lulu suffered a sudden embolism on her spine and was paralyzed from the 'waist' down. Despite very long odds; after several weeks of hospitalization, Lulu made a complete recovery and is now referred to at the vet hospital as 'our miracle dog.' The only lingering evidence of her former paralysis is that she can still become a bit 'tippy' in her rear end when she gets really excited (adding to the goofball effect), and has trouble executing the 'sit' command on slick floors. Lulu would be happiest in a home with other dogs and no children.

If you feel your home might be the right place for this wonderful dog, the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt.  Once submitted, the foster will contact you to tell you more, and to arrange a meeting! The adoption fee for all of our dogs is $250.00, which includes their vaccinations and spay/neuter.

Lulu is participating in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so custody and ongoing care are provided by the foster, not by DFWRM.

About DFW Rescue Me

About Our Rescue Group...

Our goal is to save dogs at the local shelters in the Dallas \ Fort Worth Metroplex from euthanasia and adopt them to the public. We spay / neuter these dogs as well as provide all necessary medical care. We also educate the public about responsible pet ownership. We love dogs and our goal is to reduce / eliminate euthanisias being done in this area by shelters due to overcrowding.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Dogs can be met at our adoptions events, at their foster homes, or the boarding facility where they are staying. They can also be met during the home visit.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fee for dogs is $250. We required an adoption application and check both vet references and pet deposits / breed restrictions if they apply. We also do a home check prior to all adoptions.
