Just the facts: Lola was rescued with the help of Chicago Pit Stop Rescue and is just 18 months old.
Before she was discovered: Lola was roaming the streets as a stray dog so Animal Control gave her shelter. When they found her, she couldn’t use her front right leg—it’s possible she was hit by a car which shattered her shoulder. She got the medical care she needed, which included the necessary amputation of her leg, and was living with a foster family until we brought her home for the weekend—and that was that! Today, she has a trainer to help with her new transition to family life and is waiting for a cart that will allow her to be more active outside.
Nicknames: I call her Ms. Lolly—my husband often greets her with “rorry ro ro”, our kids refers to her as Snugglebug or Pooh Bear, and her walker affectionately calls her Lollipop because she loves to jump up and give you a kiss.
Favorite Snack: beef marrow bones, organic turkey breast—and nitrate free bacon.
Talent Show: using her puppy dog eyes to make you fall head over heels in love with her, and she has the gift of gab—very good at barking!
Favorite hangouts: snoring the day away on a bed and playing with her rockball in the backyard.
Guilty pleasure: a total belly rub Queen who would be content to lie by your side getting belly rubs until she falls asleep and snores like Grandpa.
