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.
