He forms a special bond with children and relishes their company. Boris likes to follow his humans around which means he’s a loyal companion with a touch of separation anxiety and would thrive in a home with a spacious backyard where he can run, romp, and burn off his excess energy.

Adoption Lola

**Special Request and Double Adoption** Lola and Juno were neglected since they were kittens. Because they weren’t all that social, they were thrown in an attic for 10-12 years. When Lend-a-Paw received them, Lolas nails were severely curled into her paw pads, making it painful to walk. Juno was severely skinny and malnourished upon a visit to the vet, it was discovered that Juno had hypothyroidism. It is being managed with one pill twice daily. These two senior ladies need a calm environment to live out there days and someone to show them what love really is. They allow petting however they are delicate.
