Hello, my name is Lola. I am a gorgeous adult female Shih Tzu who has sort of a goofy, clumsy, and unsure way about me. In addition to being part of the group, I enjoy playing with flat, floppy, crinkle toys, chewing on bully sticks, and eating beef cheeks. Though I’m still apprehensive, I have started trying new things like being petted and sleeping on a pad. I haven’t yet made it to the bed, but I just keep telling myself… “In due time Lola…in due time!” Hee hee!

I may still be a bit jumpy, but I am also one of those girls who is not afraid to speak up when I have something to say! I have not met any kids or cats and I am working hard at learning about the leash, crate and how to do my business outside. Thankfully foster mom is wonderfully patient, and she knows that these things take time, consistency, and loving encouragement. As long as my new family understands this too, I know will master all of it in no time! My new home will need to have a fenced yard to help keep me safe and a companion who will be able to not only keep me company but show me the ropes.

Well, that’s enough about me for now. I’m going to go nap on my pad and dream about the furever home I will hopefully have with YOU! Love, Lola

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
