Lola has been surrendered as her former owners feel they are unable to give her the attention she requires as they both work full time. They have made the difficult choice to send Lola to us, so that we can find a home that better suits her needs and will give her more daytime company.


Lola is very sweet and affectionate. She loves to be around people  and her former owner believes she would be best suited as a companion  dog to someone who has lots of time to spend with her during the day.  

Lola is playful and enjoy toys. Lola  has been brought up around larger dogs and is described as being good  with cats, dogs, small children and small animals. This will be tested  in foster care.


Lola appears to be in great health, she will be checked out by our vet prior to being available for adoption. Any medical issues will be addressed and/or noted on her profile. 

Adopter Requirements:  

- No full time workers. Lola will need an adopter who is retired, works from home or is very part time. Lola needs daytime company.

- Lola would enjoy a small breed dog of a similar age/energy level in the home ideally.

Adoption Fee:  

$500.00  Fee determined by taking into account age, health and funds expended to  date. Please note: sorry we do not accept payment plans, as we need to  be sure adopters are able to financially support dogs prior to adoption.  The deposit needs to be made to the trust account prior to the dog  going on trial. 100% of all adoption fees go towards the dogs in the  care of the Trust.
