Grice, who lives in British Columbia, Canada, heard about Lola's plight through a rescue group and decided to take a chance on her.
One of the first things this tiny Chihuahua did when she got out of that shelter in 2013?
"When I took her to our vet for the first time, she fell asleep in her arms," Grice tells The Dodo. "Yup, that's an aggressive dog for you."
And when Lola got home to meet her brother, a Chihuahua named Chip who was also rescued from a shelter, the pair hit it off right away.
