Lola has a lot to give the right person who is lucky enough to adopt her. If you’re looking for a dog who has lots of love to give, but has already gone through that awkward puppy stage, Lola is your girl. She certainly loves food, especially the human variety, so her new guardian will have to be strong enough to keep her on the right kind and amount of treats. Luckily, Lola loves to go on walks, so if you’re looking for a walking partner, she’ll go at any pace.

Lola is a darling senior (approximately 10 years old) female terrier mix. She was surrendered to a Michigan shelter by her owner who could no longer afford to keep her. She weighs 30 pounds and is very healthy. She’s a big girl but she’s all terrier. Short of leg and long of body, we’re not sure exactly what breeds are in her background, but she is a definite bundle of love.

Lola is very friendly toward humans and other dogs. She is crate-trained and house-broken. She loves going outside into the fenced backyard as well as going for walks. She likes riding in the car, but needs a gentle lift as she has some arthritis in her hips. Lola has had a lot of pups and is very protective of her rear-end. She is well-behaved in the house and understands basic commands. She sleeps all night either crated or in a dog bed. After settling into her foster home, she whines a bit to tell you what she wants.

She is a bit of a Velcro girl, loving attention, scratches and belly rubs. She and her foster’s young female Cairn get along very well. She loves to eat and is always interested in her foster’s food as well, especially the smell of pizza. Lola does not shed and keeps herself very clean. She does not like thunderstorms.

Lola is still playful, and enjoys playing with some toys and balls. She is calm and very friendly. She hasn’t been around cats or children in her foster home. Lola sleeps in her crate in a bedroom or in a dog bed in her foster’s bedroom.

She has not had an accident inside since she’s been with her foster family. Lola likes company and would do very well in a home with a person/family that is home most of the time. She gets a bit stressed if she thinks that no one is home.

Lola’s ideal life would be spent in a happy, caring home environment with a loving owner to help her enjoy her life as a senior dog, ready to explore new things. She will provide much love and comfort to her new owner. Lola is up to date on her vaccinations, spayed, and on flea, tick, and heartworm preventative. She even has a bright new smile since her teeth were cleaned.
