My name is Lala, PAWS4You gave me that name, because it's a great name for a happy girl like me. My family gave me up, because they moved to a place where pets are not allowed. I'm now searching for a better home that will welcome me with open arms. If you're missing a little happiness and love, adopt me. I will make everyday a bright one!
