A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes; A spring like, bouncy middle aged lady with a grayish muzzle is welcoming visitors in her kennel…. Leash me and let’s go….! She knows what she wants… Lola is such a great walker, likely house trained (confirmed by her former owner), curious and looking for a friend in anyone she nears…Dogs, strangers and children. She is cool with the noise of the street, running bikes and carriages. Birds too. She is a pleasure to stroll with and she lets you know, tail vigorously wagging, that she feels the same…Lola’s favorite thing to do(beside being in playgroups with her peers) is to be in company and people love that too of course. She is a social butterfly and a friendly pooch who just makes you feel good and wanted…Is it not the big thing we seek in a pet companion, a true and loyal friend? Well, with Lola, what you see is what you get, a trusted fellow girl who will be part of all your doings, outings, joys and sorrows…Lola was a true family dog who shared happily her life with young children(she seems to have been their “nana”), a cat and 2 ferrets….She even mingled with larger dogs at some point. Her former owner who unfortunately did not have time for a large pet anymore, had only good things to say about Lola. Lola is a bright, loving, spunky and congenial lady who will embellish and soften your life with her presence. Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center. She is the friend you always wanted to have…
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Basic Information:Lola is an 8 year old chocolate and white medium mix breed. She was found as a stray 5 years ago.
Her previous owner surrendered her because she will no longer have time to care for her.
Previously lived with:2 adults, 2 children, 1 dog, 1 cat, 2 ferrets
How is this dog around strangers?Around strangers, Lola is is friendly and outgoing and exuberant at play with adults.
How is this dog around children?Lola lived with 2 children age 7 and 12. With them she was relaxed and playful and exuberant at play. If the children were yelled at, Lola stood between them and the adult yelling. She also licked them and stayed with them when they cried.
How is this dog around other dogs?A few years ago, Lola lived with a small breed male dog for 6 months to a year. With her she was relaxed and playful and exuberant at play. Lola then lived with a large female 6 month old dog for 2 months and was also relaxed and playful and exuberant at play.
How is this dog around cats?Lola lived with a 2 year old neutered male cat and the cat ignored her. Lola always attempted to smell the cat and play but the cat would walk away. She also currently lived with 2 ferrets for the past year. She was relaxed and playful and gentle at play.
Resource guarding:Lola was fed by the children in the home. She allowed them to touch her bowl and feed her out of their hands. She had a relaxed body and kept eating when they played with her food. Once, one of them went to her bowl while eating and she growled. She becomes playful if a treat or toy is taken from her.
Bite history:Lola has never attempted to bite a person or animal.
Other Notes:During storms or fireworks, Lola becomes nervous cries, paces and shakes and tried to stay near anyone. She struggles if held or restrained. If she is pushed off furniture she lays down and wont move. She isnt bothered if disturbed while sleeping. She tolerates baths and pulls away if her nails are trimmed. She enjoys having her coat brushed. She is friendly if an unfamiliar person approaches her home or previous owner.
Medical NotesLola has dry skin and uses oatmeal based shampoo. The last time she went to a vet was 5/7/16.
For a New Family to Know: Lola is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, pushy, and excitable. Her previous owner likes that she listens and cuddles. When her previous owner was home, she followed her around. She likes playing with balls and her favorite games are tug and catch (she retrieves the ball but wont give it back). She was kept indoors and at night slept on her dog bed. She ate dry Alpo and her favorite treat is cheddar cheese. She is house trained but had accidents a few times a month if not walked. When left alone she is well behaved. She knows the cues sit, come and go. She was walked 2x’s daily. On leash she pulls lightly, off leash she wanders and comes when called. However if she knows its time to leave she rus and becomes hard to catch. If she finds food outside she wont put it down and will sit and eat it and try to run away if you try to take it from her.
Behavior Notes:Lola approached with a wiggly body and wagging tail. She allowed me to pet and collar her. She sat on cue and gave kisses. She bounced into her kennel when I told her.
