Lola is an 8 year old, 12 pound, Lhasa Apso. She is potty trained in her foster home, walks well on leash and loves to get out for her daily stroll around the neighborhood. Lola also knows all her basic commands and will do nearly ANYTHING for a treat.
We met Lola in the shelter where her owners had surrendered her because they could no longer care for a dog. After being asked by shelter volunteers if we could rescue Lola, we of course obliged and Lola became a Lovebug. After a few days, it became apparent that Lola was very fearful of many things and as a result, we sought the help from our professional trainer. Lola and her foster mom worked very hard to understand her fears and figure out a way to help Lola feel more comfortable and reduce the stress she felt so she could relax and feel safe. Lola and her foster mom now have a wonderful relationship because of the training they received and we know Lola will bond well with her new special person but it will take some work with ongoing professional training.
Lola is uncomfortable around other dogs and children. She will require a calm home without a lot of visitors and activity and no other pets or children. We will also require that Lola’s new humans seek professional training with a positive reinforcement trainer. She is very food motivated and smart as a whip so she will continue to be an excellent student.
Lola is an amazing dog with so much love to give and let’s face it, she is just about the cutest dog ever! We are hopeful that someone out there will fall madly in love with this precious girl and give her the home and training she needs so she can live the life every dog deserves.
Our adoption fee for Lola is $150 and includes her spay, microchip, vaccines, treatment for fleas and worms, professional grooming and best of all, lots of love and socialization in her foster home.
