To know Lola is to love her. 
I always knew rescuing a dog would require a rare form of love & unique level of patience’s but it was clear to me when I first met Lola that she was always meant to be a part of my life. Weighing 19lbs when I first rescued her, I had my work cut out for me, but with enough home cooked meals Lola and I quickly grew a bond that was inseparable. 
 
From Tampa Florida, to Charleston, Virginia Beach, Washington DC, Manhattan NYC, Boston, New Hampshire, St. Pete Beach, New Orleans, Texas, The Grand Canyon, went on MISSIONS all over Southern California, the Sequoia National Forrest & now her most recent stop Long Beach Animal Control. 
Lola is now up for trial to be considered a vicious dog and I will be going to court to fight to keep her at our house under extreme circumstances. For those that do not know the back story, January 5th, Lola jumped out of the sunroof of my car. She ran to a women and her dog and jumped on her and bite her dogs food badly. The dog owner told me if I paid her she would not call Animal Services. That evening I paid her the listed amount from the vet for the estimated cost for 4 days at the vet. Once her dog returned home and was healing for 3 days, he chewed out the stitches. The owner then contacted me to pay $980 for the re-stitching fees. I told her (many times) I had giving her all of my money and unfortunately I did my due diligence by paying for the damages from my dog but did not that the money to pay here again. She seemed understanding but 3 weeks went by and with no notice from her, Animal Services was knocking at my door. Lola has now been in there custody for 7 days and I am vigilantly working to make sure her stay there is as short as possible, regardless the outcome. 

Now we are waiting to hear from the clerk’s office to set her court date where then a judge will that the decision of Lola’s future. If she is able to come home, I will be facing a $1,600 fine for the license from the city and the fees from her time in custody and will have to add several safety features around the house that will have to be approved via inspection from Animals Services before Lola is allowed to be released. OR the judge determines she's a threat to society and "too dangerous" with the intent to euthanize her. I'm praying to use this petition as evidence to the judge of the many people from across the country that have met Lola and want a chance to defend her in court. I can't thank you enough from the overwhelming support and keep praying from my baby girl ��
