Dog of the Week: Lula

My name is Lula (A14140202). I am a 1- to 2-year-old terrier mix who came to the shelter as a stray with my brother.

Our parents were contacted, but they no longer wanted us. My brother was adopted, but I’m still waiting! I am a loveable girl with great energy for long walks and games of fetch. I am in the Pen Pal program, which means I have volunteers dedicated to working with me on manners, commands and socialization.

My Pen Pals are Teri and Petra, and while my tail gets super happy when they come to visit me, I am very ready to get outta here and into a forever home! Why should you pick me?

Well, for starters, my Pen Pals say I am very smart and treat-motivated, so that will make continuing my training fun for both of us. I also settle down nicely once I get my zoomies out, and I love affection. My human friends tell me I have the softest fur they have ever petted!

Want to hear some more great things about me? I have done very well with dogs here at the shelter, so if you have a resident dog, please bring them to the shelter so we can be sure we will be best buddies. I showed no interest in cats, but the shelter staff will retest me if you have any kitties at home. Basically, I am just a girl looking for love.

The shelter is always crowded and it seems new doggies are always coming in. Hurry! I’ll be right here working on my sit command and waiting! Email my Pen Pals atterilynng AT or petrafosterpets AT for more information.
