That’s because we are pretty sure she was abused by a previous owner. She is a pit bull and we suspect that person broke her spirit when they tried to train her for fighting.
Although we coddle her daily, our “Lola Girl” occasionally gives us one of those sad, pitiful looks you see in TV commercials for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.
Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.

Sad to hear about the abuse. But, I’m glad she is in good hands now 🙂
Thanks, Spencer, for your concern for all animals and other injustices in the world. I personally appreciate your recent post on pit bull rescue.
Thank you. I just love spreading news and informing people about animals.
Lola appreciates it! 🙂
fantastic shot, sadly that some people just don’t understand how to treat animals… in this case Lola expresses it all!!
Thanks for the compliment, Joanna.
She is a pretty girl.
Thanks, Ann, she is a beautiful companion!
A wonderful photo and even more amazing pet parent!
Nice of you to say, Bonnie. She and Pooch are much happier now that they can romp in the country.
I have a friend who trains dogs and she gets really riled up when people “stereotype” pit bulls and bring unnecessary charges against them. It’s not the dog, it’s the negligent or vicious owner who creates the stereotype. Lola is adorable and I am sure she brings you great joy.
That she does. She lets us know she is happy … romps with Pooch in the woods … loves to play tug of war with a large stick … and she prances when she is excited to get a dog bone treat. Thanks, Dezra, for caring.
What an adorable face!
Thanks, Deb. Some people don’t like the brindle, but we think her lines give her character.
It’s a really interesting picture. There is something almost threatening about the way it’s been framed, but then you look into the eyes Lola and you see quite the opposite. Very pittyfull indeed. It’s a very strong picture, well captured. And I am happy that Lola has caring people around her now.
Thanks so much for your compliment. I cropped it close to emphasize her sad expression … at that moment. She is most content running through the woods with her pal, Pooch, and taking joy rides in the car. We are happy that she is now happy.
We have a dog that was a resque. He was tangled, and imaciated and scared to death of men. You would never know to look at him today. Like the dog whisperer says, they don’t dwell on the past. Give him a possitive environment and he will, like Max, thrive.
Hey, Karen, nice to hear from you again. Thanks for commenting. 🙂 If I had the means I would foster all of them from our local shelter.
Shes a beautiful dog and I imagine is very happy to have you! Love the photo 🙂
I do believe she loves us as much as we love her. 🙂 Thanks for the “like” and the “love.”
She finally found a safe home in you!
She’s cute! I like her color!
Ahh, thank so much. 🙂
Glad Lola has a forever home now with loving people around her.
That she does have, Russel.
