12/6/16 2:33pm Basic Information Lola is a 12 year old mastiff and boxer mix. The previous owner had Lola since she was approximately 6 months old. There are no medical concerns for Lola that the owner is aware of. Socialization Lola is said to be friendly with children, she has lived with an 8 month old and a 13 year old. She is playful and outgoing with strangers. She is a gentle player with adults and with children. Lola has also lived with another male dog, a mastiff/pitbull and she is playful with him. Lola is known to love to play any kind of game: fetch, chase, wrestle and tug. She loves all toys: balls, stuffed toys, squeeky, chew bones and frisbees. Behavior The previous owner states that Lola has no behavior concerns, she eliminates outside and will only have accidents if she is left home alone for numerous hours (approximately 10-12 hours). Lola remains friendly when you try to take any toys or food away from her. Lola remains friendly when you wake her up, brush her, push her off the furniture, and when you trim her nails. Her favorite pastimes are sitting in the sun, walking and rolling in the grass. She does seem to be afraid of the water. Lola enjoys, brisk and slow walks, and jogging. Typically, Lola will slightly pull on the leash and may wander off-leash, however, will come back when called. For a New Family to Know Lola is known to sleep in a dog bed or sleep on the floor. She eats 2 cups of Purina dry dog food each day. However, Lola loves eating anything. Lola does sometimes sleep in a large crate in the home as well, she seemed to enjoy it at times. Lola knows the following commands: sit, come, down, stay, shake/give paw and heel. Behavior during Intake Lola allowed all handling upon intake. She enjoyed treats very much – she sat down for them and gingerly took them from the handler. Lola appreciated petting and if you stopped, she would nudge your hand for you to continue petting her. Lola also rolled over and loved to get her belly rubbed. Lola remained soft, relaxed and gave tail wags the moment she met someone.
12/08/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I love Lola! That would be the name of my TV show if I had produced one for her. A gentle soul, who is so friendly in your company you can’t help but adore her. She has a few years in her, but I’m sure those years were spent in a happy home. Lola accepted all handling from me, and is a trooper on the walk. No pulling on leash here, just an easy, peasy, peaceful strut. Lola knows some commands, and is not shy from showing me some. Her paw shake is so friendly and caring, I didn’t want to return her to the kennel. Lola is all love, and then some. I believe she is a can’t-miss senior girl, if you have experience with (or would like) a large breed dog. Lola has lived with children and another dog already. Take this one home. I’m sure she will thank you from the bottom of her big heart!
