  1. Hi LaFlaca, It was chicken and wheat. We now have him on a limited ingredient diet (Natural Balance Potato and Duck). The food elimination is very time consuming and frustrating, but definitely worth it! Best of luck with Lola!

He is 4 years old and he was describe to us by the adoption agency as somewhat bold, fearless and able to be an only dog. He is not affectionate and does not seem to enjoy petting from us (lip licking, turning his head away, etc). Funny thing is, he is ALL about strangers, licking them, nibbling them, melting into them and begging for petting.
