12/16/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
12/16/16 13:18 Lola is friendly and outgoing towards strangers and has spent time with children of all ages. She is relaxed and playful around children and plays gently with them. She also plays gently, but a tad more exuberant, with adults. Lola has spent time around dogs of all sizes and plays more gently with smaller dogs but will be more exuberant with bigger dogs closer to her size. She’s never spent time around cats and has never bitten another animal or human. During loud noises such as storms, Lola is nervous and tries to hide under her owner’s bed. She isn’t bothered when her food bowl and treats get taken away and becomes playful if you try and take her toys. Lola doesn’t go on the furniture so it’s unknown how she’d react if someone were to pull her off of it. She isn’t bothered when disturbed from her slumber or when she’s restrained from something she wants. She loves baths and getting brushed and allows the groomers to trim her nails without any issues. Lola will bark when someone unfamiliar approaches her home and will growl when they approach her family. She’s very protective but will warm up if she sees her owner communicating with someone new. Lola’s owner describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, and excitable. Her activity is between medium and high. When she’s ready to play, Lola enjoys running in her family’s yard and playing with balls, rubber toys, and sticks. She likes playing fetch, tug and wrestly and is mostly kept indoors. When her owner is home, she follows her around but will sleep in her own bed at night. Lola is very house-trained and never has accidents. When she’s ready to go potty, she waits to go on grass and sometimes cement. When left alone in the house, Lola is very well-behaved and when left in her yard will sometimes bark at squirrels but other then that is good. She was crate-trained but her owners believe she doesn’t need it anymore. Lola knows sit, down, come, stay, up (to jump), and high five. For exercise, she loves brisk walks on leash (where she’ll sometimes pull), playing in the yard, and running beside her owner while she’s on a bike. Lola eats three cups of Pedigree (chicken and beef), once daily. Her favorite treats are bacon bites.
12/22/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: “My name is Lola. And I’m a showgirl.” Certainly no one would question that coming from 1.5 year-old Lola. She is winter’s perfect poster pup with her snowy white coat and black, button nose. All she’s missing is a Christmas cap and a holiday scarf to fit in perfectly on Santa’s sleigh. Yes, miss Lola’s cuteness is obvious to everyone. Including Lola! Clearly used to stealing the show young Lola is un-phased by the attention she garners on our walk (“oh how adorable!”) and accepts hugs and pets like a pro. She is also NO stranger to treats and if you make the mistake of taking your time while giving one to her – “ARF!” She makes your errors swiftly known. Our showgirl’s previous family describes her as “friendly, affectionate, playful, and excitable.” She is certainly all of those things. I would also add beautiful, precocious, delightfully bossy, and bright. “My name is Lola. And I’m a snow girl.” Meet your very own snowy showstopper just in time for the holidays. Lola is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
