Lola is an amazing, beautiful, smart and loyal girl. She is about 1-2 years old as estimated by our vet. We have guesses on her breed but of course without a DNA test we can not be sure what exactly she is. What we do know is this wonderful dog has been with us since we rescued her from a local shelter on Valentine’s Day of this year. When we pulled her from the shelter we noticed she had a leg injury because she was walking on only 3 legs but we didn’t know to what extent. When we got her to our vet they diagnosed her with elbow dysplasia which would require an expensive surgery. She has finally received her surgery and is healing slowly. On walks she usually still hobbles on 3 legs and doesn’t often put weight on her bad leg. The vet thinks it is now a learned behavior and she may never decide to walk on all fours again. She has been using the leg more often now that we have put a gentle leader on her for walks and have been doing training on her once a week.

Unfortunately Lola’s leg isn’t the only thing working against her, shortly after she got to her foster home she went after their dog and their cat. She will have to be the ONLY dog in the home. We have been working on her in the home and on walks in order to get her to refer to her handler when another dog is around instead of focusing on it. She makes huge improvements every single time we work with her. She is such an intelligent dog and is extremely friendly with humans of all ages. She loves to cuddle up with anyone who will give her the time of day and she is so mellow.

Lola will need an experienced adopter who is willing to continue her training. She would benefit from having an adopter with a pool that she could swim in or someone who would be willing to get her into aquatic therapy. Someone who lives on a farm or out in the country or a quiet area would be perfect. This way she could relax because there wouldn’t be dogs walking past the house consistently. She would love a fenced in yard to run around and play in privacy without the distraction of other dogs. Lola truly is an amazing dog, I can’t say that enough! Everyone who meets her says she is the “perfect dog” but unfortunately so far everyone who has met her has another dog in their home. If you have no pets and are considering Lola please take the chance and come meet her, you will NOT be disappointed!!!!
