GREAT NEWS! Lola has found her fur-ever home. Lola was adopted last night by Jon and Kady Duncan of Woodstock, IL. Lola was rescued out of Istanbul, Turkey and will now share her life with her brother Bentley (aka Scooby) who was adopted last year and rescued out of India. We are so very happy for this beautiful family.

Lola has found the perfect home as her and Bentley have already developed a very nurturing, loving and playful relationship. I think it’s safe to say that Lola will bring joy and entertainment to her new family on a daily basis and she will be eternally grateful for her wonderful family!

Thank you to all who helped Lola along the way from rescuing her from the street after she was hit by a car, nursing her back to health, fostering, arranging logistics for her travel and being her flight companion! So many loving hands have touched this young dogs life. And now she is in the loving hands of her new family who will enable her to flourish and lead a fulfilled life.

Lola the little pup,   

Through the field she went,   

Down the hill into the green grass,   

Across the park, over the bridge,   

And down to the town, then up the hill,   

On the road and boom under the car.   


Lola was found on the side of the road crying of pain In Istanbul. her paws covered with blood, wasn’t able to walk, she was hit by a car. She had multiple injuries on her back legs. She is lucky she was found and rushed to the emergency pet care hospital. She had many wounds and broken bones. She is only four months and she spent a month in the vet clinic. Now that she is recovered and she is doing very well she has become playful and social she gets along very well with other dogs and cats, and will probably weigh 30 pounds as an adult. She needs to go outside to putty. Lola is a cuddler and soaks up as much attention as you can spare. She’s looking for an adopter with the time to raise a puppy with lots of love and positive guidance.   

Lola is friendly with a wonderful personality. She has a very joyful attitude on life and wants to fill her days with fun adventures. Full of happy wags and wiggles, Lola loves meeting new people and other dogs, eager for love and enjoys going out for walks to see the world. She’s a confident, friendly and playful pup that will be a fantastic addition to the family!    

Lola is street dog from Istanbul. She is fully vaccinated and microchipped.  This sweet girl will be arriving with Kaplan on January 3rd.
