Jai dee • Sweet-natured
A unique story to tell and heaps of love to give, this special dog is one in a million and looking for an extraordinary adopter to complete her tale!
This cute-as-a-button little lady is Lola. Unlike most of our dogs, Lola started life as a beach dog, living on the streets in Hua Hin, where she was discovered as a small puppy with a broken spine. Vets suspect her injuries may have been caused by a hard kick, or motorbike collision. There were maggots in her wounds, she was crawling with ticks, and she was very vulnerable. Returning her to life on the beach simply wasn’t an option: it would have been a death-sentence.
Luckily, Lola caught the attention of PAWSS who took her in and helped get her back on her feet thanks to a whizzy new wheelchair! She even had a loving home lined up, but sadly things fell through due to the impact of Covid.
When Marilyn from PAWSS was left to reconsider Lola’s future, she immediately thought of the Jai Dog Rescue team. Our experience with disabled dogs means we can provide her the perfect place to rehabilitate and recover from her trauma, all whilst we get her ready to find an amazing forever home when the time is right.
Lola arrived on The Farm in May, but Lola’s story doesn’t end there! After extraordinary support from our followers, following Lola’s campaign, we successfully raised enough money to not only buy Lola a shiny new wheelchair, but fly her to the UK where she’s kickstarted her rehabilitation whilst in foster care.
It’s hard to believe Lola’s ever been anything but the smiley, happy girl we’ve gotten to know. From beach stray getting by with a broken spine, to capturing the hearts of dog-lovers around the world and securing the most wonderful foster home, it’s fair to say that Lola’s is a rescue journey all street dogs dream of.
With her adorable Furby ears, her button bright eyes, and her sunny disposition, she effortlessly has everyone wrapped round her little paw in no time. This sweet girl has been slowly settling into all the new sites and smells in the UK, and from the understandably nervous and shut down dog that arrived in the UK, Lola is loving getting to know all her new foster friends!
Lola loves her toys and playing interactive games, of which her personal favourite is tug of war! And if you throw her tug toy too high, she tends to do a little bunny hop as she tries to catch it. As her confidence builds, she is starting to initiate play with the other dogs but she is equally happy just spending time and seeking out affection and playtime from people. Lola is a calm, soft, sweet and cuddly dog who we know will make one adopter extremely happy one day!
Lola perfect home
Lola is a pure bundle of joy! This calm and happy little frog is a true human companion whose mission in life is to win over everyone’s hearts!
With a respectful older or calm dog, Lola could well live with other dogs. She could live with children as well but we will only be considering homes with older children who are going to respect her needs and limitations.
Lola is in the early stages of her rehabilitation and toilet training, so her new adopter will need to be prepared to keep up this structured routine. Just like any dog, Lola needs regular toilet breaks and – due to her condition – these breaks will need to be more assisted than most dogs, around 4-5 times a day.
Though she may take a little while to adjust to a new home after such a journey, Lola has adapted to her new foster environment really well and she is now ready to start meeting adopters who are willing to take this very special girl on and welcome her into the fold!
Due to the commitment needed to adopt a disabled dog, we’ll happily consider foster homes in the first instance, who have a view to adopt at a later date.

Sum Lee was shot in the back as a puppy by a local farmer. He was left paralysed from the waist down and needed a lot of care to help him recover. But he lived to show the world how incredible disabled dogs are!
