Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Lola. She is a 1-year-old Hound mix with a cropped tail. She has short-medium length fur and weighs 22kg. Lola was transferred to our Rescue from another Ontario Rescue.
Lola is a very loving and playful gal. She loves to play with other dogs but plays very hard for a dog her size. Another Rescue pulled her from the OSPCA but found her quite mouthy and at the time they did not have a suitable foster for her. We took her knowing her mouthing issues were age-related and her way of playing as she would with another dog. We immediately place her in a foster home with other dogs where she could play amongst the pack and use her energy levels up playing chase with the other dogs. It has worked perfectly and she is not mouthy at all in the foster home. She runs very fast and really looks like a deer from the back.
Lola has a sensitive stomach so is on a Chicken and Rice Diet with grains. She is a high-energy dog, so she is fed 1 1/2 cups twice daily and she metabolizes it quickly. She is good with both dogs and cats according to the previous Rescue. She loves to run with toys in her mouth and she is very fast. She has no fear of any other dogs and will let other dogs know if they get out of line with her. She is a hound mix and we are unsure if her cropped tail is natural or not but we do not believe it is. Lola sleeps on the furniture at night time or a doggie bed, whichever is available at the time. She will counter surf, typical of her breed so one must be mindful of this trait. She will follow her nose so a minimum of a 6-foot high wooden fully fenced yard is mandatory. She requires to be tethered in the vehicle otherwise she wants to be a backseat front-seat passenger.
Lola loves people and is very affectionate. She does not have any trust issues. She loves to lay on your lap or beside you on a couch when she is done playing and will give kisses. She is game for any kind of toy she can carry in her mouth.
Due to her breed mix, she will neve be allowed off leash in an unfenced area as she will follow her nose.
The ideal home for Lola will be another dog, preferably a male that is able to play hard with her. Older children would be fine, 10 years plus. She will require a steady diet and a family where someone is home part of the day. She is a high-energy dog so will need stimulus if the other dog does not wish to play. Eventually, she will calm down but currently, she is an adolescent so ways of dealing with her stimuli is vital. She would be great in agility classes.
Lola will make a very loyal member to her family.
Lola is spayed, up to date with vaccines, 4dx tested negative and was on heartworm prevention from August to November. She is also microchipped.
A fully fenced backyard,made of wood, minimum of 6 feet, another resident male dog who likes to play hard and a Veterinarian History of Compliance are mandatory to apply for our Lola.
