Lolly, a 10-year-old-plus female Foxhound, has been a resident here at the shelter twice before. We don’t know her history before she came to us for the first time, but we’re hoping that the third time’s the charm for her in finding her “furever” home.
Had we known what we know now about Lolly when she first stayed with us, we might have named her Houdini. When she was adopted, it turned out that she’s a master escape artist. True to her breed, given even the smallest chance to follow a scent, Lolly goes bounding joyfully off to investigate it. She walks on a leash, but whoever’s walking her needs to be ready and have a firm hand to control her when she picks up a scent and wants to bolt after it.
Something we didn’t find out about Lolly during either of her previous stays at the shelter is that she’s apparently afraid of loud noises. One of the family members in her second adoptive home was wheelchair bound. During thunderstorms Lolly would run to her lap seeking comfort and reassurance. Concerned that Lolly might injure her, the family reluctantly returned Lolly to us.
So this lovely “lady of a certain age” obviously won’t fit easily into just any home. She needs an adopter who’s aware of her wandering ways and her fear of loud noises and is savvy enough to handle them. A home without a feline family member would probably be best because— well, Lolly’s a Foxhound; chasing small animals is In her genes. A securely fenced yard would be a bonus.
But in the right home, Lolly will make a delightful and loving companion. She likes people and gets along well with people of all ages. She’ll make herself right at home on your couch, and she loves getting belly rubs. She’s clean in her kennel here and is potty trained. And she’s already spayed and is up to date on all vaccines.
Think you might be the right match for Lolly? Come do a kennel walkthrough between 10:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and get to meet her. If you’d like an adoption application, you can pick one up during your visit, download one from our website (www.shorespca.com), or request one by email (email@example.com). You can also call the shelter between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. if you have any questions.
