A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Lola is a dream dog, so pretty in her pristine dress, a little white cloud, so innocent looking and gazing at me with gentle and puzzled eyes. Lola is with us for no fault of her own. Her family lost its home and so did she. We do not know much about her but what we see is very much to our liking. A lovely, well mannered, sweet middle aged gal who was clearly a well cared for and beloved family dog. Lola is at her door waiting to be leashed. She is a great walker, likely house trained and polite with other dogs we near. She is fine being outfitted with a heavy coat but the snow melting salt did hurt her feet. Some cleaning is in order as we are back at the care center. Lola sat in the lobby and almost gave me her paw to remove the salt and have her pads washed…. I love how placid she is but do to be mistaken, she is not a couch potato. Given the opportunity, she will run and jump after a tennis ball and catch it… One can not go wrong deciding to share his or her life with Lola…. She is a wonderful girl destined to make an master very happy to have her as a forever best friend. Lola is at the Manhattan Care Center, dreaming to be home and owned again…
Another volunteer writes: What’s not to love about a little white chunkster in a hoodie? Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl…..Our Lola may not be a showgirl, but she’s sure a show stopper! Adorably pint sized, pleasantly plump who some might call Rubenesque, she’s great on leash, passes other dogs in the street with ease, and even when a pesky JRT whose owner irresponsibly had him off leash kept following us, she ignored him. It’s off leash where this little munchkin comes to life, chasing balls and toys, eagerly anticipating another throw with bright eyes and wagging tail, and even at one point rather than waiting for the ball to come close to her, jumped up for the catch! Her chunky little body gives no hint to the athlete within. Impressive! She’s as low key, sweet and gentle as can be, joining us when her person lost her home. Patiently and politely waiting for her new person to find her, she cordially invites you to stop by adoptions to meet her. You’ll be glad you did!
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
My medical notes are…
Details on my behavior are…

Toy: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog may smell or lick, then turns away.
Summary: Lola approached the assessor in the assessment room with a soft body. She was social, allowed all handling, and displayed no concerning behaviors.
PLAY GROUP : The behavior department feels that Lola would succeed best with slow introductions respectful dogs. Behavior history around other dogs is not available due to arriving as a stray. She has been observed to require time to warm up before becoming comfortable around dogs in the care center.
1/5: When introduced off leash to male dogs, Lola greets politely then mostly keeps to herself. She corrects for persistent face to face interactions.
1/11: Lola keeps mostly to herself. When approached playfully, she shows brief interest in engaging, then wanders away.
Date of initial: 4-Jan-2018
Summary: Lola was tense but allowed handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Lola so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, she displays a medium level of activity.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: AVERAGE (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
