02/21/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
02/21/17 16:29 Lola A1104318 is an 8yr old female black Lab/AMPBT mix who was left behind a week ago after her owners left without her. A tenant felt bad for her and thought it best for her to be brought in. They stated Lola lived with children ages 15, 11 & 5yrs old (also the kids from the building loved her), she’s housebroken (will let you know by whining she wants to go out), eats dry and wet food 2-3x a day, isn’t bothered by baths, hasn’t had her nails trimmed for a couple of years, doesn’t mind having her food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved and hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal. During walks when she sees an animal she’ll ignore them or sometimes wag her tail at them. Lola sleeps most of the time and doesn’t really play much anymore. Her known commands are “sit”, stay” and “come”. Lola is friendly with strangers and allowed them to leash and walk her to our BXAC location. During intake Lola allowed all handling. She allowed to be scanned (-), collared and taken pictures of. She walked slowly alongside me to her kennel where she hopped in on her own once she spotted her food.
02/23/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Lola got no less than 4 walks today. Who could ignore her? She lays flat in her kennel and lifts soulfully her copper droopy eyes when someone stands insistently at her door. In our first encounter, she was a bit tired. By our fourth encounter, though, Lola was up in no time, went for a stroll around the block and later on for some quiet time in the yard. I wonder if Lola thought that I was too pushy? Lola might be 8 and have a grey muzzle, but she is one gorgeous dog! Her ebony coat shines like a black diamond in the sun. Her eyes are as bright as African amber. She has a good weight and seems to have cared for a few litters. What a proud and beautiful mama she must have been. She poses docilely for pictures. Lola walks slowly or at a good pace, does her business on the way and basically ignores other dogs neared. She sniffs the air in the park and appears not to regret that she is out in the sun instead of her kennel. She comes when I call her and settles by me as I asked. We are like two old friends now, contemplating peacefully our surroundings, blessed to be together and believing that tomorrow will bring just the same…love, peace and companionship. Left behind when her owners were evicted, Lola was brought to us by someone who knew her well. She comes with wonderful comments. She was a kid lover, was friendly to all, well mannered, housetrained, quiet and slept a lot. Lola seems like the perfect dog for a new owner who yearns for a calm, affectionate and loyal companion. I know she would suit me big time as I can not run a marathon anymore. Lola is at the Manhattan Care Center dreaming of a soft pillow by your feet, tasty home made treats, slow walks and of course, your love. Come and meet her soon.
