WARNING: If you adopt Lola, be prepared for nonstop fun and games!
Lola is an approximately 10-months-old possible husky/German shepherd mix, almost full grown at only about 40 pounds. She’s very high energy and athletic, loves fetch, Frisbee, and playing in the water. She might be a good choice for someone who’s interested in agility, dog sports, or even possibly to train her as a working dog. She would do best in a home with another dog around her size who likes to roughhouse, to help work off her energy. A fenced yard or acreage is essential, as well as plenty of long walks/hikes and play time. Due to her strong desire to chase, she probably shouldn’t be around cats or other small animals that can’t outrun her.
Lola is very smart and sensitive. She learns better with positive reinforcement and is working on manners like not jumping up and walking nicely on leash. Lola was found as a neighborhood stray as a puppy and appeared to have had a caring home at some point, as she sits readily for leashing, etc. While tentative with strangers and slightly protective of her property, she bonds quickly with people and is affectionate but not clingy. She likes to be close to her family/person but will rest quietly in her own space or when home alone if she’s been given a chance to work off her energy and is left with a chew toy or Kong, etc. Lola hasn’t been observed with children but showed calm curiosity when seeing some running from a distance. Due to her energy and strength, she would need to be supervised around little kids or anyone unsteady on their feet until she’s better trained not to jump up. Lola loves women, but does take a bit to warm up to men.
Lola has been spayed, is healthy, up to date on all her shots, and housebroken.
