Foster home needed!
Young – (1-2 years)
Fully housebroken, loves to sleep in her own bed.
Great with kids, would love to have human siblings :-)
Good with dogs. Cats Maybe.
Cholula (“Lula” or “Lu” for short) is searching for a foster home or sponsor after being dumped at a property in extremely rural Arkansas. She is not yet in KC because a foster home hasn’t been available. If you can help, transport will be provided. Or, if you’d like to sponsor Lula while she waits on a foster or forever home, please contact us right away!
Lula turned up at an empty cabin looking for people and comfort. When she found nothing but an old dog bed and an empty food bowl, she waited there for an entire week while the property owners watched helplessly on security cameras from 5 hours away.
It was apparent to Lu that she had ended up at a place occupied by folks who loved dogs, so she made herself at home and held out hope that someone would return soon. She slept on the bed, sheltered from storms, cuddled up next to the empty bowl, and occasionally checked the outhouse—just in case she missed an arrival.
It was heartbreaking to watch, knowing that she didn’t end up there on her own. Unlike the hoards of rural dogs in the area, she wasn’t roaming for fun or taking an afternoon adventure—Lula was scared and lonely. But, she knew that most of the time, cabins had people, food, and warmth—and she was intent on waiting it out.
As soon as she was able, the one and only rescuer in the area came to check on this sweet girl. In true bully-breed fashion, Lula wasn’t interested in the food, all she wanted was attention and love. She greeted the stranger with wiggles, wags and kisses—offering her paw and following her around, sitting submissively at every stop.
The original plan was to drop off food and wait it out—unfortunately that is often the best case scenario in a place with no animal shelters. However, after meeting precious Cholula, the rescuer knew there was no way she could leave her behind. Lula needed a person even more than she needed food or water, and she would surely chase the car as far as she could if she was left behind again.
We are seeking a foster home for Lula as soon as possible as the rural rescuer has her hands full. There are many, many more homeless and roaming pets that she is called upon to help daily, and she has limited resources and space.
Lu is great in the house and fully housebroken. While she enjoys snuggling up in her bed with a good chewy, she LOVES attention and kids – especially those who will play with her. Playing is a must for this sweet little wiggle worm!
What will you gain in fostering Lula? She is well-mannered, eager to please and very friendly. She has the sweetest personality, loves treats, and will provide comic relief with her derpy facial expressions and one ear that has a mind of its own.
Curling up on the couch with her person/people is Lula’s dream come true. She would love nothing more than to be your companion. Eat. Play. Love. is Lula’s mantra! Can you help? Contact us today!
