Dog With Three Legs Gets New Home with Trucker
The abandoned pooch will get to see the country as a companion to her new Dad.
An abandoned dog with just three legs now has a new home--on the open road!
According to local television station WYFF, Karen Pettay, business manager for the Humane Society of Greenwood, SC, said the dog appeared in her yard in March. She quickly realized the dog's right rear leg was gone, apparently from an amputation.
She took the dog to her shelter, where they found a collar, but no license or microchip. They posted pictures on their Facebook page, and on Humane Society pages across the country, hoping somebody would recognize her and claim her, but after a month nobody had. The shelter named her Lola.
"Every vet in the surrounding areas was contacted for information about her obviously recent amputation," the Humane Society posted. "Nothing. No one knew anything about this sweet, loving, affectionate pooch."

But shortly after Lola was put up by adoption, she got a new dad in Cory Wandling, a long-haul trucker. Wandling said he was looking for a companion to keep him company on his trips.
"Lola is about to embark on an adventure that will take her all over the country, as she is going to be traveling with her new dad, who is a long haul trucker! Because of her sparkling personality and unique appearance, this sweet girl is sure to be a hit no matter where she goes. We are so happy for her and her new family! Safe travels, Lola. We look forward to updates from the road!"
As you can see, Lola already looks at home in the cab of Wandling's truck!
