Lola came to us as a "foster." She was about 4 months old and had been abused. I am NOT a purse dog kind of girl. In fact, I'm a big dog, big truck, own my own gun kind of girl! My husband, who thinks we have TOO MANY animals as it is...got Lola from his friend who had rescued her. Needles to say, we fell in love immediately and as you can see, she became the instand princess of our house. She doesn't just sleep on the bed...she sleeps under the covers!!! She has the very best personality of any dog I've ever had. I'm glad she was so young when we got her. I'm looking forward to having her for a very LONG time!!!
