Lola's mom says: About a month after we had to put our Jack Russell terrier to sleep, we were ready to find a new companion for our eight-year-old mixed-breed, Scout, and our two sons. We saw an ad in the newspaper for farm puppies. We made the call and were the first to see the litter of eight mixed-breed puppies. The mother was blue heeler, husky, and Australian shepherd, and the farmer and his wife thought that they had seen a golden retriever skulking around the farm at about the right time to be the father. The whole litter were all adorable, but something about Lola just melted our hearts. She seemed like she would be the perfect addition to our family. She has turned out to be a bit of a handful with her love for digging holes in our backyard, but she is extremely lovable and smart as a whip -- a little too smart for her own good sometimes. She has been the final piece of the puzzle to complete our family.
