Lola (Female)

My original name was Tappy, but now my friends call me Lola! I was born about two years ago, in the southern states. People tell me that I am a perfect weight of 45 pounds, and I'm not going to get any bigger. I don't remember my parents, but I think they were part Labrador. I am a smart girl, who knows several commands. I love to do my business outside, never inside. Going potty indoors is gross!

If I got to choose how to spend my time, cuddling on the couch and getting belly rubs would be at the top of the list. Of course I also love to run, play with toys and watch for squirrels. My sister and I are nicknamed "the squirrels", 'cause we enjoy chasing and watching them. LOL!

I don't remember very much about my upbringing, but I do remember being in a scary, jail-like place. I think they call it a kill shelter. Luckily, when I was about three months old, a nice lady rescued me and my sister from that stinky place. The smell is something that I'll never forget. I really enjoyed living with the lady, and many other doggy siblings (7, and sometimes more). Unfortunately, we all moved to a new home together and there was a change in the household dynamics. This led me to feel uncomfortable with my situation and my doggy siblings. Now, I get jealous when my sister or other doggy siblings try to take my mom's attention. So, sadly, Mom can no longer deal with all the jealously. She thinks I would be better off with a family of my own, where I can have all of the attention. I do fine with other dogs in public and enjoy seeing them pass by, but I just don't want to share the attention at home. Did I mention that I love attention and belly rubs? I really do! One of my other favorite things to do is snuggle! Won't you help reduce me and my mom's stress by adopting me (so we can snuggle together)?

I am spayed, microchipped and have all of my shots to date. My adoption fee is only $275 which will benefit other CPR rescue animals and includes tests, microchip and up to date shots.

About Chicago Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

CPR is a foster/ volunteer based rescue, with a 501c(3) non-profit status, dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned animals. We do not have a central "shelter" as all of our animals are placed in foster homes until forever homes can be found. Our goal is to rescue as many animals as we can safely manage thru foster homes. We rescue dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, birds and other small animals.
