Pretty enough to be a show girl, that’s our Lola. At approximately 3 years old, this large, American pit bull terrier­-mix is a smart, friendly and calm girl with a pretty face and an attractive body and a shorthair coat of red and white. A sweet dog who wants attention and love, Lola deserves a good, loving forever home where she can be a faithful companion with owner(s) willing to give her affection, care and exercise in a fenced area or on a leash, and basic obedience training.
