Hi, I’m Lola!
I was found in July of 2012 with my siblings, alone and scared in an abandoned house with no mother or father; we were just two weeks old. Luckily a few kind people found us and I went home with one of them. I was bottle fed by the boy who took me in and had a dog friend named Sasha, a husky, who acted as a mother to me for the next few weeks of my life.
Unfortunately, the family that took me in their house could only keep me for so long. They knew they couldn’t keep me but didn’t know where I would be going next. I did go everywhere with their boy though, who really loved me and didn’t want to see me have to leave their home.
One day he took me over to this house where I met a couple new people. They all thought I was very cute and then found out that I was looking for a home. I didn’t go home with them though, they weren’t really looking for a dog, but secretly I know they were thinking about me after they left.
The next day the family I was living with received a call from the people who met me the previous night! They said they gave it a lot of thought and wanted to give me a permanent home! My boy was a little upset and not sure what to do; after all, we had grown so attached to each other. But his mother told him that they made a deal and simply couldn’t have another dog. He agreed that it was for the best.
On August 14th, 2012, I went to my new family’s house. My momma says that was one of the best days of her life. Well, minus the fact that I peed and pooed all over their floor, a few times. Oops.
I have to say, I’m living the best life a dog ask for! My family is the greatest a dog could ask for and says that I am truly one of the best things that came into their lives. They take me to fun classes such as flyball and obedience. I really prefer flyball. But in the summer of 2014, I earned my Canine Good Citizen certificate!
We also have had a lot of other dogs come and live with us until they find their fur-ever homes. I never minded sharing our home though, plus its fun having a playmate!
After fostering and seeing how much I enjoyed having a playmate, my parents couldn’t resist another dog. In October of 2013 we adopted my brother Rio from Save-A-Bull Rescue in Minnesota. You’ll probably see a lot of him if you follow our Facebook page, Lola the Pitty.
What else would you like to know about me? Well, I’m a sassy little girl, weighing it at just about 35 pounds. But what I lack in weight, I make up for in character! Dad says I’m a daddy’s girl but I really can’t hold back my excitement for everyone I love.
Oh, there’s also a blog named after me, LolaThePitty.com. We share all sorts of fun stuff over there; our goal is to raise positive awareness for often misjudged breeds, fight the stereotypes, make people laugh and share our positive adventures in life as pit bulls!
