Likes: Enjoying her retired life from guide work and now lives as a spoiled pet. She enjoys nice naps and peanut butter, particularly on a dog biscuit.
Pet-Peeves: Getting her nails trimmed and having to take a baby. Also when a nosey little pit-mix bugs her.
Favorite Toy: Raw hide chew strips and her little beanie bear.
Favorite Food: Anything that is not banana flaovered or green veggies.
Favorite Walk: Probably anywhere that food is going to be (i.e. walk into the kitchen, treats from the pet store, kibble from pocket of handler on a side walk)
Best Tricks: Shake and still doing her former guide work like checking curbs on walks.
Arrival Story: I raised Iola from a puppy to become a guide dog. At 14 months of being raised, she went off to "Guide Dog College" and trained for a year to be a guide. She was matched and worked with a woman for about a year in Kentucky. She was unfortunately retired early for health reasons. I was able to adopt Iola back as a pet and now she is a spoiled pet enjoying the retired life.
Bio: Iola's name means "Violet-colored dawn". She was the only girl in a litter of three puppies, she definitely is a diva girl!
