MENTOR, Ohio — Lula Bell, the “big-boned” dachshund at Lake Humane Society that was searching for a new home that could help her live a healthier lifestyle, found it Sunday.
The woman who adopted her is prepared to assist her on a weight loss journey, giving her a healthier life.
“What we’ve been doing diet and exercise-wise [with Lula Bell] she will continue,” a worker at the shelter said.
Lake Humane Society said that Lula Bell’s new owner spoke with an adoption counselor yesterday to see if it was a good fit.
“She came first thing in the morning was waiting outside for her when we go there,” the worker said.
The shelter requires that all members of the household come in and meet with the animals before they can adopt them.
“They loved each other so it worked!” the worker said.
Lake Humane Society said Lula Bell’s previous owners brought her in after realizing they could no longer physically care for her. One of the reasons they were unable to care for her was her size.
The shelter said that the dachshund is “determined to turn her life around” but first needed to find a new family, and Sunday she did just that.
Lula Bell didn’t have to wait very long to find her new home. She was brought it on Aug. 24, spending just over a week at the shelter before being adopted.
