Lolita is an extremely friendly 2-year-old girl who came to us all the way from Vieques, Puerto Rico. She is, what the locals would call, a “Sato,” or “street dog.” She was transferred here from a rescue organization who wanted her to find the best home possible.

Diamond in the Ruff - JR Dunn - Lolita

We do not know anything about her past, but we have really enjoyed getting to know her. While Lolita is as sweet as can be, she is incredibly timid and needs time to gain trust in humans. Once she has spent some time with you, though, she loves attention. Because she is so fearful, we highly recommend that she goes to a home without small children (their over-exuberance might scare her).

Lolita is currently learning how to be a wonderful, obedient forever friend in a foster-home.

We often have dogs, like Lolita, who sometimes take weeks (or even months) before they truly warm up to their families and show a bit of personality. But, experience has shown the wait is completely worth it. We have many pet parents who say their “Satos” are the most loyal companions they’ve ever had.

Our friends at JR Dunn Jewelers agree, which is why they have generously sponsored her adoption fee! If you have plenty of love and patience to give this gentle girl, please come by and ask to meet her today.

About Diamond in the Ruff

Since 2016, longtime Humane Society of Broward County supporter J.R. Dunn Jewelers has been helping to create true love – by sponsoring pet adoptions so that more dogs and cats can find happy homes. The program is called Diamond in the Ruff, and who knows diamonds better than J.R. Dunn?

J.R. Dunn features a pet each week – yes, 52 pets every year – and underwrites the entire adoption fee for that dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Diamond in the Ruff is promoted through J.R. Dunn’s local radio spots and social media, and the HSBC will do its share of promotion as well.

What a fabulous way to put their money where their heart is, and to bring attention to all the amazing dogs and cats that are so ready to be loved. Furry little diamonds in the rough – just waiting for their “perfect setting!”

Be sure to visit J.R. Dunn’s facebook page each week  to see who the featured pet is and you might just find your next family member. Of course to meet the pet, contact the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-266-6839.
