A volunteer writes: “Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl…..”, sang Barry Manilow. While our Lola isn’t a show girl, she sure is a show stopper! Absolutely gorgeous, her pale blue eyes are friendly and mesmerizing. We met a local man walking his husky to whom she play bowed, and his initial response was ‘wow’. Her leash manners are good and in the park Lola shows off her perfect sit, takes treats softly and hops up on the bench to sit beside me so that together we can watch people walking their dogs and the squirrels scurrying about. Lola joins us as her family no longer had time for her and they tell us that she lived with several children ages 8-10 and is good with all, she doesn’t guard her things, is playful, affectionate and friendly. She loves toys, sleeps on a dog bed and is well behaved when left home alone. She may need some tweaking on housetraining skills, and with frequent walks and positive reinforcement (she loves treats), she’ll learn quickly. In the park Lola wanted to meet every dog we passed and in playgroup romps with another female. Lola is looking for a fun active home, perhaps with a canine sibling. If you’re an experienced dog owner come meet our Lola today and start singing!

When off leash with a spayed female Lola initially attempts to mount her. However, once correction is offered Lola ceases and begins to engage in rough play. She is bouncy and may occasionally vocalize during play. Her owner reports that on walks Lola will bark at dogs she sees, but no in-home behaviors are noted. The behavior department feels that Lola could go to a home with a playful, tolerant dog that is able to offer appropriate corrections as well as teach Lola proper social skills.
During her initial medical exam Lola appeared tense and nervous
_X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control (It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training is recommended.)
