Lola has not had the easiest life before she came to Second Chance Animal Rescue of Windsor-Essex County. SCAR first saw Lola being rescued from a car after it had been involved in a high speed chase that ended up in the water of a lake with her still inside. Seeing the video of animal control staff removing this sweet, but scared, girl from the car, we inquired about bringing her into the Rescue.
Lola is an amazing girl, she has lived with cats, kittens, small dogs, medium dogs, and does very well with them all. She is hand shy at first but that is due to her past trauma. Once she knows you are not going to harm her, she becomes the biggest sweetheart.
Lola loves being brushed and pampered, she enjoys playing with her toys, and she does get her zoomies on, so a fully fenced yard with room to run is a must for her. She is able to jump a regular chainlink fence or gates, so a very tall fence is needed to keep her safe.
Lola walks well on her leash and is learning a lot of new commands such as sit, come, stay, etc. She would do best in a home with another playful medium or large dog. Due to her size and playfulness, Lola should be in a home with older children that she won’t accidentally knock over or harm when running around. She is crate trained but isn’t currently using one as she is only left alone for a few hours at a time. Lola can exhibit separation anxiety, but with another dog in the home, this is more likely to subside for her.
Lola loves to sleep on the couch, so if you have enough room on your couch (and maybe your bed), this beautiful girl would love to snuggle up with you.
Medical Note: Lola had a growth removed from her back when she was spayed which SCAR sent away to be checked and it came back as non-cancerous. Lola was given Pro Heart 12 on November 9, 2021 (this medication protects against heartworm disease for 12 months) and therefore only requires Nexguard each month for flea/tick prevention until October 2022. In November 2022, she will require a new prescription of Nexguard and Heartguard or Advantage Multi for year-round ongoing preventative treatment.
All dogs available for adoption with Second Chance Animal Rescue Windsor-Essex come fully vaccinated, including lepto, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and heartworm tested (and are on heartworm/flea preventative while in our care). At adoption, adopters receive a 6-week free trial of pet insurance.
SCAR does not have the resources to adopt animals to the United States and we can only adopt within a 200 km radius of Windsor, Ontario. Please do not apply if you do not live in Ontario, within 200 kms of Windsor.
