found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.
My name is Lola and I am an adorable 3-4 year old bullie girl looking
for a family to love and cherish for the rest of my life. I am
overflowing with love and affection, and I am a very happy girl. I
promise you I will make you happy every single day by loving you with
my whole heart!
I was treated very badly by people for the first several years of my
life. My foster mom and dad think I was hurt by them and used to
produce cute puppies for them to sell. It was awful. They are pretty
sure I never got to be outside of a cage. I was terrified.
Thankfully, though, my luck changed when I went to live with a great
family in St. Louis. When I first got out of the bad place, I
wouldn't walk on grass and I wouldn't even stand up when they took me
out of the cage. I never barked and I didn't know how to be a dog.
Unfortunately, I had some medical issues that needed veterinary
attention, which was very expensive for my new, awesome family in St.
Louis! They did all they could to nurse me back to health for several
months. They just couldn't keep supporting me financially, even
though they love me more than anything. It was the hardest decision
they have had to make to let me go. They gave me so much. They
taught me how to love and be loved, and they taught me that people
aren't all bad and mean. They also spent a lot of money to give me
emergency surgery on my eyes and lots of medication to help with
various infections, etc. Now that I am with IEBR, I know I will find
another perfect family for me to love.
I love it here in foster care and I am such a good girl. I am
house-trained, I adore people once I know they will be nice to me, and
I am crazy about my bullie foster siblings. I had a 4 year old skin
brother in my family in St. Louis and he and I got along great. When
he was sick I would lay by his bed all night to make sure he was okay.
I am a good girl and I care very much about my family. I am loyal
and forgiving and all I want to do is to please my people. I am quite
the snuggler, too. I crawl right up onto my foster mom's lap and set
my head on her chest. Then I just stare at her for a really long
time. This is how I tell her I love her and it's how I thank her for
taking care of me. Oh, and I also give lots of good, sloppy bullie
kisses right on her face. I love to give kisses. I don't have a mean
bone in my body. I'm nothing but a sweetheart and a lover.
Now to tell you about my medical issues. I have to get spayed,
because I sure don't want to have any more babies! I also need
entropion surgery to fix my pretty eyes. It'll be a challenge for the
doctor because of my gorgeous, wrinkled forehead. The first time I
had this surgery it didn't "take," so we have to do it again.
Hopefully it'll work this time! My spay surgery and entropion surgery
will be done at the same time. I also have dry eyes, especially in
the right eye. When I first went to the doctor upon coming to IEBR, I
learned that my right eye is producing virtually no tears whatsoever!
No wonder it was so uncomfortable! This means that I will need to
have special eye medicine every day for the rest of my life. I'm a
really good girl about having it put in, though. I sit for my foster
mom and wait for her to be done. I also have ear infections that went
untreated for my whole life until I went to live with my family in St.
Louis. Because of the infections, my ear canals are very badly
calcified. I don't hear very well because of it and I might need ear
medicine for the rest of my life as well. That is to be determined.
I also have significant allergies and a skin infection. Right now I'm
on steroids and anti-inflammatory medicine, as well as antibiotics,
and they have made me feel so much better! I also get special baths
every other day. I don't like baths, but I am so patient and I put up
with it because I know it's necessary right now. I have been switched
to a grain-free diet and I am hoping this will largely alleviate the
allergy problem. This is to be determined also. In addition, I have
major wrinkles on my face that are very hidden. They need to be
cleaned with special wipes twice a day. I am a pretty small girl,
only 41#. They say I'm too skinny. My foster parents are trying to
fatten me up a little bit, which I certainly don't mind! I like to
eat and it's only a matter of time before I fill out and look even
more perfect than I already do! I feel great despite these physical
problems, and I am a very happy girl!
I love to play and chew, and I'm a really good napper too. My foster
mom thinks it's the cutest thing when I get in a playful mood because
I don't run, I hop and bounce instead. When I'm playing with my
foster siblings, I like to do what I call a "Tigger pounce." They
don't see it coming! All of a sudden, I pounce! It's so much fun and
everyone thinks it is so funny and cute (which it is)! I am very good
at listening and following directions. I am perfect on a leash - I
will only walk on your right side and I absolutely will not cross in
front of you or try to walk on the left side. I am so good!
Not to brag, but I am as cute as a bug! Some might say I'm even cuter
than one. I have a crooked jaw and a gigantic underbite. I have one
tooth that often gets hung up on my lip, so it usually sticks out. I
also have a really cute right ear. It is white with little brown
spots. My tail is pretty cute also. It is slightly off-center too.
My foster mom loves my uniqueness and she thinks I am SO CUTE. It's
all I ever hear from her! A girl never gets tired of hearing how cute
she is though, so I'm definitely not complaining.
If you think I would fit into your family and lifestyle, please fill
out an application! My foster mom says she thinks I will be adopted
quickly because of how sweet and wonderful I am, so don't wait! In
the meantime, I am happy and loved here in foster care. I do look
forward to finding a forever home and family though. Hope to hear
from you soon!!
