Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
She was dumped at a kill shelter in Pittsburgh. Kyoko has a friend who works at the shelter and calls her anytime a doodle finds their way there. Her former family surrendered her and her 4 month old puppy. The shelter adopted the puppy out - I pray to a family that understands life with a doodle!!
Lola was supposedly an indoor doodle because she knows the basic commands but Kyoko had to stop to bathe her before she brought her home because she STUNK!! Kyoko cut out most of the mats and I did the rest. Her skin is incredibly dry and coming off in big dandruff flakes. I hope it is due to being so dirty and not allergies but time will tell. She does not shed.
Kyoko told me that Lola was great during the 6+ hour drive from Pittsburgh and she certainly was the hour drive to our home.
I describe Lola in one word - delicious! She has a kind soul which I could tell when my girls met Lola. Samantha would have told me otherwise just by the introduction. Lola is a truly a sweet girl. Her temperment is incredible! She allowed a total stranger to comb her, cut our mats and trim the incredibly long hair between her paw pads. She just laid there so quietly and patiently. I wish my girls would take a lesson on that!o
She is one skinny girl with a great appetite so I assume she wasn't fed enough. The girls had an early dinner - I put Lola's bowl on the other side of the kitchen. When she was done she walked past my girls and they didn't feel threatened in any way - they didn't skip a beat.
If she has a fault it is that she jumps up without permission for loving. The jumping part we are working on. When the loving stops, she gives her paw. Not a swat but her leg goes up in the air. Not sure if that is something she was trained to do but it is something we are working on. Other than those 2 things, she is perfect.
As always Kyoko - thank you!!!!!!
