Lola is an absolute gem! This beautiful 5 year-old Boxer mix found herself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter along with her sister Riley after they were surrendered due to their dislike of cats. When the shelter was bursting at the seams and a euthanasia list was in the works, a Good Samaritan pulled both Lola and her sister to save their lives. Unfortunately, both Lola and her sister tested positive for heartworms so we were contacted for help with them. Both dogs came to Canine Lifeline so they could get the lifesaving treatment that they needed. Lola has completed her immiticide injections to kill the adult heartworms and has done very well during the cage rest required during her recuperation. This lovely lady has excellent crate manners, is housetrained in her foster home and sure to pick up the house rules quickly in her new home. Lola also walks beautifully on a leash. She has gotten along very well with all dogs she’s met since coming to us but does have a strong prey drive so can’t live in a home with kitties or other small critters. Lola is the type of dog who’ll walk right into her new house and make herself at home. We can’t wait to see her living her new life as a treasured member of her new family. Lola weighs about 42 pounds and her adoption fee is $350. She’s spayed, on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Lola. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
