Facts about Lola

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
10 yrs old, 50 lbs - Lola has been here for 7 years! Another dog and someone home alot would be the ideal retirement home for this wonderfully sweet girl.

She is a smart, happy go lucky, playful girl. She was 3 years old when her horrible owner dumped her at the shelter as punishment to her children for not behaving. I witnessed it. Luckily I was there that day picking up another dog and was able to take Lola and her beagle buddy home with me b/c she shelter was full and they were to be put directly to sleep.

Lola loves her person and doesn't go far when out and about. She used to love the lake and she still enjoys short hikes but she can no longer be seen swimming or chasing deer. She has mellowed out with age and just enjoys small jaunts. She spends most of her time laying on her bed in her crate (door open). She likes the security of her crate and she can chew on her toys or eat her food in peace away from my other dogs too. I call her my little hoarder b/c she will take every toys she can find and hide it in her crate under her blanket. It is like a treasure chest for the dogs when you pull her blanket out. LOL When I sit down, she comes up and puts her head in my lap and looks at me with her golden eyes. You can certainly see her soul through those eyes. She listens well off leash as long as you keep your eye on her and she is not with a dog that will run off with her. If another dog will go, they are gone! Lola would make a great family pet or a companion for someone who just wants to spoil her.

Lola needs a very secure fenced yard or leash walking. She requires another dog b/c when left alone she has separation anxiety. She went to two homes over the years for short times. The first crated her alone all day and they would come home and the plastic crate would be across the room upside down, with Lola still inside. The second home didn't understand that Lolas need was not for a playmate but not to be alone. They kept separating the dogs when they would leave so Lola tore up the carpet to get out of the room to get to the other dog. Once together she was fine.

All dogs are fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed/neutered and Heartworm negative unless otherwise noted. We require an adoption application, home visit and adoption fee of $200 ($150 for senior). You also get a two week trial period with all of our dogs. To apply, simply go to www.forgottenpaws.com.

Many of our dogs are in foster homes all over Atlanta, thus an application is required before an appointment can be set to meet a dog.

About Forgotten Paws Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Forgotten Paws Pet Rescue is made up of a very small group of volunteers. We all work full time jobs while running this rescue group. We all dip into our own pockets on a daily basis to get these pets the medical care and supplies that they need to survive until we can find them their forever homes. Unfortunately, some of them have to wait in line for care because we do not have the monetary means to help them immediately. That is where your donations come in.

Our rescued pets live in our homes, under our supervision. We do our best to train, housebreak and perfect these pets to the best of our abilities so that when we do find them their forever homes, they work out.

We at Forgotten Paws revere our rescued pets like our own. We treat them like members of our families until they can be adopted. We are a NO KILL group and we also ask that if a pet does not work out for any reason, 2 days or 10 years down the road, please return them to us. We love them that much.

Our motto: When we rescue a pet, we are in it for life. We are not just looking for a home, we are looking for the right home.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Process:
**********************************************************
October only, adoption fee is $100, that's half the price!
**********************************************************
1. All applicants must be 23 years of age and must complete an adoption application.
2. You application will be reviewed and all veterinary and personal references will be contacted
3. Home Visit / Play Date - All household members, including current pets, are required to attend the home visit. All needed repairs to fencing must be completed prior to this visit. Gates to the yard need to be securing locked.
4. Two Week Trial Adoption Period - We require the two week trial on all adoptions so that the new pet has time to get settled and their true personalities can surface. It gives the new home a chance to make sure this pet is the right fit for everyone involved. Please understand that like a child, a new pet needs time to adjust and settle in. There is an adjustment period.
5. Adoption Agreement and Adopton Fee of $200 ($150 for seniors).
6. One policy to note: If you have children and you are applying for a dog, we will require you to have a physically fenced yard. Electric fencing is not acceptable in most cases but exceptions are sometimes made dependent upon the dog.
