Lola was in terrible shape when she was found - no one knew how long she had been lying alone, waiting to die. Her two front legs were broken - Jellison could see the exposed bone poking through - and Lola weighed about 25 pounds, half of what she should.
Jellison credits her staff for the excellent care they gave Lola, cleaning her wounds, caring for her and gaining her trust.
During Lola's five-month stay at the animal hospital, her goofy, loving personality began to shine through, and everyone fell absolutely in love with her.
"This dog loves everyone. This dog is so happy just to be alive," Jellison said. "She's never had a bed. When I got her a bed she was just like, 'Ahh!' She didn't leave her bed for two days."
Lola gained weight, and the bites on her muzzle healed, but her legs were irreparably damaged. Once she was strong enough, the staff at the hospital fitted her for a wheeled cart.
