Home: Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary, adoptable pet every week.

Today, meet Lola, a 2-year-old white terrier American Staffordshire mix currently residing at the Charleston Animal Society in South Carolina.

This girl is a “lover of life,” according to her bio, which is amazing because she’s been let down a lot in her short life. “Lola is so special because she has grown to be a strong, independent woman (dog) and despite her many related commitment failings she still loves like she hasn’t been hurt,” it reads. “Her deafness and amazing eyes set her apart from the rest.”

This pup, who has been at the shelter since May, is the perfect pet for someone who needs positive energy on a daily basis. Among Lola’s many loves are catch, playing with squeaky toys and playing tug of war.

“She is a lover of life and a fun loving active dog who enjoys playing with her doggie friends and is absolutely a water dog,” the bio says. “You can take her to the pool or the beach and you will both have a wonderful time. Sometimes she is called ‘Lolagator’ because she is like an alligator sitting in her swamp pool watching the world.”

Car rides and road trips are another way she enjoys taking it all in, so if you’re a person on the go, Lola will fit right into your lifestyle.

The shelter is offering a free training package for anyone who adopts this sweetie. This includes a consultation and five in-home training sessions with Caitlin Kuczko, CPDT-KA and Canine College Coordinator and Instructor (a value of $370), yours for free thanks to behavioral funds the ASPCA awarded to the Animal Resource Center. Talk to the shelter to learn more.

“With love, attention, patience and learning some hand signals, she will become a loyal loving addition to a family,” her bio says. “There is a perfect family out there for Lola. Please share Lola’s information with everyone. Let’s find a perfect family for this incredible dog.”

If you’re interested in adopting Lola, call 843-747-4849 for more information or visit her bio to learn more about her.
