Lola #4 (FKA Tabitha #3) Yellow Labrador Retriever Female 6 Years Old ID #2678

Happy New Year from Lola and her foster family! Lola was spayed on December 22nd and is healing well. The vet had noticed an awkward looking canine tooth during her pre-exam and while she was under for her spay, they found it to be fractured so it was removed. She’s had no trouble eating and it doesn’t seem to bother her at all.
She gets along so well with our cat and kitten and even chases after their cat toys. We’ve finally seen her checking out her own toy box from time to time to find a soft toy to chew on. She is an absolute piggy at meal times so we’ve broken each of her feeding times up into several small meals. We use a slow feeder in her bowl, wrap middle up in knotted towels and place some into Kongs so she has to work for her meals. This helps to prevent bloat and also tires her out with play.
Lola will be posted as ready to be adopted this week and may do best with a confident dog to show her how to be a dog. She is still somewhat nervous around our dog but has gotten much better since her first day here.

Lola is doing well and settled into our routine. She is very well behaved and has the run of the house while we are at work. She watches from the window as we come and go and I watch her sleep the day away on the ring cam.
We’ve got a new kitten in the house and Lola is so well behaved with him. The kitten loves to chase Lola’s tail and Lola loves to nuzzle him. The 2 cats and Lola often end up in a little game of chase.
Lola is due to get spayed this Thursday and will become available shortly after. I think she’d do best in a home with a confident dog to show her how to be a dog. She is extremely loving and sweet and loves being with her humans. I think it will take her a bit of time to settle into a new home so it would be important for her to have someone who could devote their time to helping her settle in her new environment.

Hi, Lola here.
I’m settling into my foster family’s home and adjusting well now. FM got carpets for the stairs so now I can walk up and down nicely. I’m learning to sleep through the night and entertain myself during the day. Everybody says I snore really loud, but I’m so relaxed now that I am comfy and warm.
I still seem to prefer females over males. My Foster Dad said he hopes to cuddle with me one day. I have two human sisters and a cat brother. My cat brother and I get along really well. Sometimes he takes my ball and sometimes I take his toys. He even tries to steal a kibble or two when I eat. We’ve had a few visitors at the house and as long as they give me some time to sniff around them, I enjoy their head pats and belly rubs.
FM put this annoying spinney thing in my food bowl. She said I eat too fast and need to slow down. I can’t help it though; I’m finally getting good food twice a day and I’ve put on two pounds since I’ve been here.
FM took me to the vet the other day and I got all of my shots. I was very well behaved and so many people told me what a good girl I was. I’m going to get spayed in a few weeks. FM says my puppy making days are over. The doctor said I could still put on a few more pounds so we stopped and picked out a few new bags of treats.
Well Tata for now. My cozy bed is calling me. zzzzzzz…….

Lola is a 60 pound 6-year-old former breeder mom who had her last litter of puppies just two months ago. She has been living with our family since Saturday and is adjusting well. She loves belly rubs and pets, sleeping and of course, eating. She does great with our 3-year-old cat and loves our teenage girls, but is still a bit nervous around her human Dad.
Lola is not very confident on the hardwood stairs so we’ve ordered some carpet treads for the stairs. She is not signaling to go out yet, but is slowly learning to potty outside.
She is very gentle and has the sweetest demeanor. I imagine in a week or two she’ll get the hang of our daily routine. She is visiting the vet this week and we will hopefully schedule her spay surgery. She recently had her rabies shot and did really well around all of the other visiting dogs.
I think Lola would be a great dog for someone that is able to give her all of the attention she missed in the first 6 years of her life.
