A new addition to the family

DaNece got a special birthday present today. We stopped by the humane society and found the perfect little companion for Scrappy. We are calling her Lola, and she is a 4 month old Queensland heeler mix. Her and Scrappy are a lot alike. Her original home was also abusive, so she is pretty skittish just like Scrappy was when he arrived on our doorstep. After only 1/2 a day with us she has already started to come out of her shell, and is currently chasing Scrappy around vying for a tennis ball which barely fits in her mouth.


Since they are the same breed they look a lot alike as well:

Lola on the left, Scrappy on the right.


She is primarily black with white on her underside, compared to scrappy's polka-dot pattern all over.

Welcome to the family Lola! :)

Awww, welcome to the family Lola! She's a very pretty dog Tombo - I hope you are all really happy together. x

How wonderful! Good for you for taking in another abandoned animal. Hope to see a lot more pics of her.

QD - We are definitely the adoptive type. There is no point in going to a pet store and support the puppy mills. Not only do you pay less, but you get a dog that appreciates the love you can give it.

Lots more pictures will be coming I'm sure. As it is, she is a bit fast for non-flash photos so I have to catch her when she slows down a bit. :)
