Shy Lola is blossoming into a loving and playful girl
Lovely Lola was a young puppy alone on the streets and petrified of everything around her.
She was spotted regularly around a hotel in Ovacik looking extremely timid and fearful of everything and everyone.
She flinched when anyone went near and it was obvious she had not eaten for some time.
A couple staying at the hotel wanted to do something to help so they contacted the local animal welfare group Animal Aid Ovacik to see if anything could be done to help her.
They in turn contacted one of their regular foster carers who went in search of her.
They found her and took her to the vet for a check up.
They also kindly agreed to take her into their home while she went through her course of vaccinations to protect her.
She was extremely scared and timid when she first arrived to join the other dogs living with the foster carers.
However, she is beginning to settle and has begun to trust her new surroundings and to trust her carers.
Over the following two weeks she really came out of herself and began to play so well with the other dogs.
She particularly formed a strong bond with three-month-old rescue pup Maisie and the two soon became inseparable playmates.
She is still timid and wary of new people and will stay back until she feels she knows them, and then she will be fine.
She is also timid and wary of young children who bound up to her. This will probably change over time as she learns to trust and to feel secure.
However because of this we would prefer to home either with a family with no children or older children.
Lola is estimated to be around seven months old and is likely to be around 10-11 months old when the time comes for her to travel to the UK.
During her time in foster care she has grown into an extremely loving and gentle dog who loves to play. With the right patience and loving care she will make an amazing pet.

Lola will soon be tested with cats and also with children to make sure she is OK with them as well. We have seen nothing to suggest will not be.
