January 19, 2021 – Darling, petite Lulabelle, turned in because she was being kept on a chain in the yard so she would not wander, has gone to a previous adopter with another dog to enjoy. Back to her original name of Lulu, Mom writes: “Lulu is an absolute joy to have. She has taken more to me and Maddie has always been a daddy’s girl. Lulu went to the vet today and is in almost picture perfect health. However, when the vet tried to check Maddie’s hips, Lulu politely, but firmly, put herself between the vet and Maddie in a Big Sis protective move. That’s what the vet said. Personally, I think it might be more “pet me, not Maddie.” Love it. She is adjusting to car rides. While not fond of it, she settles down quickly. Lulu just ignores the cats. :). Tomorrow, we will start walking around the block.” We are so glad this couple found another sweet dog to help fill the hole left when their AGB alumni Jane fell ill suddenly and passed away. They have waited almost 6 years. You’ve got the best, Lulu!

“So, we’ll go no more a roving”. Hello, my name is Lulabelle and I’m 5 years old. I’ve been a wandering girl for most of my life but I think my wanderlust is gone for good. I’ve discovered a warm, soft bed at my foster parents and I get to sleep indoors with them. This is the life and I’d be real happy to live like this for always. I’ve always been allowed to roam free and I lived outside. Recently, I was kept on a chain because I can be a bit of an escape artist; I can go over and under fences when I get lonely and want some attention. I am a very sweet Golden girl and I’m quite easy going. I’m partly house-trained and I know the “sit” command. When I got transported to the AGB vet, I was quite anxious because I haven’t been to a vet in a long time and I really didn’t like being in a kennel alone. I’ve been diagnosed with heart worms and my coat was extremely matted. I’ve had one litter of puppies but I’ve been spayed. Strangers and new situations can scare me at first until I get to know you and feel safe. AGB got me into a foster home right away and I’m really happy now. They say I am a “love bug” and a joy to be around. So, this wandering girl has decided that life with a forever family is number one on my Christmas wish list.
