For 8 long years, one pit bull’s life was filled with dread and despair. Locked up to a wall, this poor girl could barely move and she was kept in isolation. There was no one around to hug her or love her. Then one day, an animal rescue team heard about her situation and quickly came to the rescue. You won’t believe how much her life has changed now!
Meet Lola, the sweet and adorable pit bull. For eight years of her life, Lola spent her time in absolute misery. There was no happy day for her and it was a terrible sight to see…
19. Chained Up
You see, for eight years Lola was chained up to inside of a dark and gloomy garage. She spent all of her days lying around on the concrete floor. It was a terrible way to live.
18. No Love
Throughout those eight years, Lola was pretty much on her own. There was no one around to give her love or attention. All of her days were filled with darkness and cold concrete floors.
17. Phone Call
One day, a woman had walked by the garage and noticed Lola. She could tell that Lola was being neglected and quickly called AMA Animal Rescue, an animal welfare organization operating in the New York area. The rescuers quickly responded to the call.
16. Rescue Mission
A group of animal rescuers arrived at the address that the woman had given them. The immediately saw Lola and the terrible conditions that she was living in. However, they couldn’t just take her without permission.
Eventually, the rescue team was able to convince Lola’s owner to give her up. The animal rescue team was expecting for Lola to be pretty aggressive toward them. After all, she had been locked up for years. However, they never expected what happened next!
14. Sweet Girl
So was she aggressive and hostile toward the rescuers? Absolutely not! In fact, Lola greeted them with a wagging tail and a huge smile on her face. She was the sweetest thing…
“We called her ‘wiggly ****,’” Michele Walsh, a volunteer with AMA, told The Dodo. “She was wagging her cute little tail, super friendly, giving kisses and so happy to meet her rescuers. She let them take her off this chain, and they walked right out with her.”
12. The Vet
The first thing the team did was bring Lola over to the Animal Kind Veterinary Hospital. There they found out that Lola had a number of health issues that were neglected over the years. So what was wrong?
11. Health Issues
The vet quickly discovered that Lola had several tumors on her body as well as dental disease. So the vet got to work on removing the tumors and gave Lola medicine to clear up the dental disease. Soon she was ready to go to her foster home.
10. Foster Home
Lola was quickly set up with a perfect foster home that took care of her for several months. In the meantime, the rescue team continued to look for a perfect forever home for her. Then one day, they found the right one.
A woman named Charlène von Saher, who lives in Manhattan, was incredibly interested in Lola. She knew that she needed her in her life! Lola life would change immediately upon her adoption!
8. Happy Life
Lola is greatly enjoying her new life with her amazing mom. She has been living with von Saher for seven weeks now. However, von Saher said that it only took Lola a few days to get adjusted to the new living situation.
7. A Queen
“She basically lives like a queen now,” von Saher said, jokingly. Lola has settled into her new home and is absolutely in love with it.
6. Soft Spots
“She figured out where her little beds were, and what was soft and what was comfortable for her,” von Saher told The Dodo. After sleeping on a concrete floor for so many years, Lola is grateful to have a soft bed and couch to lounge on.
“I mean, she’s less than a block away from Central Park. She goes to Connecticut on the weekends. I mean she really living – the life,” von Saher said, happily. It is true that Lola is finally living the life she always deserved.
Not only is Lola super comfortable in her new home, but she will also go out of her way to rearrange things if she doesn’t find them to her comfort level. “Lola will also rearrange things to get extra comfortable,” von Saher said. You won’t believe what she does!
3. Dog Bed
“She actually took a throw pillow off of my bed, and put it into her dog bed,” von Saher said. “When I came home, her head was on it — she literally made herself a little bed in her bed with my pillow. It was like ‘The Princess and the Pea’ — I guess she liked having multiple cushions underneath her.”
Lola has truly upgraded in the most wonderful way. She no longer has to worry about being neglected or having to sleep on solid cold floors. Her life has completely changed in the best way ever.
1. Wonderful Rescues
Thanks to the dedicated animal rescuers at AMA, Lola was given a second chance at life. It is amazing to think just how much one animal rescue can completely change a dog’s life!
