Hi, my name is Lola. I'm a very sweet girl but I was not handled correctly by my owners or trainers. I was a bit fearful and the trainer used a shock collar and that made me even more nervous. So this time around I am looking for someone that will help guide me with patience and skill to build my confidence. I would love someone with a tender hand that would take the time to get to know me, let me de-stress, and help me learn to trust again. I am still young pup learning my manners and sometimes I get a little jumpy when I get excited but it's nothing that a little love and training can't help me with. I've never really had much playtime and I don't understand what it is all about but I have seen other dogs play and it looks like fun. I mean come on ...I can chase a ball and toss a stuffed animal in the air...piece a cake. Just give me a chance to show you. I am friendly with other dogs but sometimes I try too hard to make friends and jump on them (which they don't like) so I need to learn how to play nice so I can make new friends. With someone that is willing to work with me I can learn my basic commands and improve my manners. The best dog for me to hang out with would be one that is calm and easy going. I get very nervous around children so the best home for me will be one without kids that way I can just focus on being a great dog and not worry about the little ones. Please give me a chance to show you my true colors and how bright they shine.
