Dogs Trust

Lola (formerly Orlene) from Dublin

We knew for some time that we wanted to adopt another dog as a companion for our JRT X, Millie. When I searched the Dogs Trust website and saw Lola (known as Orlene), her big beautiful eyes were the first thing that struck me. On our first visit to the centre, meeting Lola and hearing of the rough time she'd had made us even more sure that she was the one for us. She was extremely nervous for the first few months with us and took a lot of hard work/perseverance. Everything frightened her - even coming into the living room from the hall. Now, almost 2 years later, Lola is a different dog. She loves her walks (especially chasing the ball), treats and cuddles! She loves meeting new dogs and is particularly good with puppies. Although she still scares easily, she is the most gentle and loving dog we've ever met and we can't imagine our lives without our livewire Lola :)
