LOLA – 12532
Safe - 11-27-2017 Brooklyn Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Lola. My animal id is #12532. I am a female gray dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 5 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 13-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- moving – no pets allowed.
Lola is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infection Respiratory Disease Complex and will likely require home rest and a series of antibiotics for up to 14 days. This is a contagious illness to other dogs. Lola is Suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: If you’ve never seen a dog with an overbite before, let me tell you, they are the cutest, and Lola is the one to meet: just mentioning her name causes the eyes of her favorite staff members to light up! She was with her previous family since she was a babe, so it’s not surprising that she can be a bit of a scaredy cat without them. They tell us she hasn’t been socialized with other animals, she grew up with the resident human child, and she loves to watch TV! She can startle with big movements, and needed a little warm up time when I first met her, but she is SO LOVING. She has an adorable way of placing her paw on me before crawling into my lap, she gives the best hugs, when she hops on a bench her silly little face all but says “get over here!”, and she loves getting belly rubs and giving kisses. To boot, she’s very easy to walk on leash (and her tail goes steadily like a little windshield wiper the entire time!), seems housebroken, likes toys, and loves treats (she knows “sit” like a champ and has almost mastered “paw” and “down”). AND she makes these ridiculous little begging noises that I can’t do justice with words…please come experience Lola for yourself at Brooklyn ACC!
