Lola ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

Lola. Lo-lo-lo-lo-LO-la! Never mind what it says in the song, I know what I am and I'm a female Silky Terrier. I'm a perky redhead who will warm your heart and your lap if you just give me a chance. I'm about 8 years old and weigh 11 pounds. I understand most of the time that the potty is outside on the grass or concrete. I'm the sweet, silent type; my foster family has only heard me bark once. I have all my shots, a microchip and an unlimited supply of Silky kisses.

It's hard to believe a sweetheart like me ended up in a shelter. It was my lucky day when Silky Terrier Rescue bailed me out and the nice vet at Tustana gave some long overdue attention to my teeth. I don't have many left, which means that I'm a lover and not a fighter. The good news is that you probably don't have to worry about me biting anyone, but the flip side is that I can't defend myself, so aggressive dogs, cats and kids are not a good idea. I love older kids as long as they're gentle with me. I'd be okay in an apartment but a small yard would be nice. Stairs are a little bit intimidating, but I'm trying. I'll give you my paw whenever you ask for it. I'll stand up on my hind legs to welcome you home or ask for a treat.

I gratefully slurp down the soft dog food in my bowl, but I don't do kibble. Chew toys don't interest me much. I am absolutely fascinated by whatever people are doing in the kitchen, the computer room or even the laundry room. I curl up in a little dog bed for the night. But my favorite place to be is in your lap or snuggled next to you on the couch. Did I mention Silky kisses? I'm so thankful to be rescued and ready for a forever home. And you know what they say, "Whatever Lola wants...".
