LOLA-2 was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space Lola-2 is spayed, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative, had monthly preventatives and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 9 June 2013 and weighs around 52.20 pounds. She has been listed as a German Shepherd Dog. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
Lola-2 is a high energy, fun loving, alpha girl. She is good with other dogs, but she will show alpha tendencies. She has never been aggressive in any way and has settled well with any dogs she has met or shared a kennel with. She is a girl that needs to be occupied, she paces when she has a lot of energy that needs to be released. She doesn't bark excessively and she has never been destructive. She takes treats gently and does sit when told. Since being at the rescue she has gained weight and is looking good now that she has filled out.
She uses the dog door to go outside into the kennel run and does her business, she has never made a mess of her kennel. However, I do not know if she would let you know she wants to go outside, so we do ask families to expect her to have a few accidents until she has time to transition, get used to her new home, family and routine and learn what is expected of her and the rules of the house.
Being a working breed dog, we do prefer families that are familiar with the specific breed, or a working dog breed so that they fully understand that although these dogs are very intelligent, they do require a lot of work in keeping them physically exercised and equally, if not more important mentally stimulated.
We do not recommend dog parks for several weeks, if not months, it is so very important for families and dogs to form a strong bond and get to know each other before exposing them to the potential dangers of dog parks. Although all GaDaH dogs are very well socialized with other dogs, lots of other dogs have not had the benefit of this socialization and do not always know how to play and act with other dogs. You also do not know the control the other families have over their dogs and you should always have a good recall for your adopted dog before going to dog parks.
Lola-2 is available for adoption for an adoption fee of $550. Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.
