Sweet little Lola will melt your heart. This tiny, but mighty, lady survived Hurricane Ida on the streets of New Orleans in August 2021. She has been searching for the right home that will give her the time to settle into a routine and blossom.
Lola gets very stressed in the shelter environment, so she has been in several foster homes over the past year and has thrived. She has overcome her housebreaking struggles thanks to a set schedule and routine. She is on medication for seizures and skin allergies and takes her tiny pills like a champ – as long as they are wrapped up in a tasty treat. Lola is an angel for her weekly baths and loves having her belly rubbed with warm water and shampoo. She bonds closely with her people and does well meeting new folks with the encouragement of those she trusts.
All the moving around has been tough on Lola and she will cry and whine when left alone. But, this will hopefully subside when she gets settled in to a permanent home.
When Lola playing with toys, especially stuffed ones, she is pure joy. She will bump your leg with the toy to get you to play tug with her. She loves to make funny little growls while she whips her toys around in the air. Lola usually finishes a play session by rolling around on her toys before heading for a nap.
Lola does not like other animals and cannot live with them in a home but is learning new skills to ignore other animals when she is out in public. Having lived on the streets of New Orleans, it’s likely that she had a bad experience or may have been attacked by another animal at some point.
With all that Lola has been through, she is still sweet, cuddly and ready to live her best life.
She has been waiting far too long for someone to give her a chance. Is that with you? If you think it might be, please fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of her OHS profile and schedule a time to come in and meet her.
