MUST WATCH: Ravens OT Ronnie Stanley & Lola, The Dog That No One Wanted

Back in June, we told you about how Ravens rookie offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley adopted a new pet in his new city; and it wasn't an ordinary story.
Stanley went to the BARCS Animal Shelter in Baltimore with one goal in mind: to adopt a dog that no one else wanted and that would likely never find a home. That's how he found Lola, who was found on a vacant property on a hot day with no electricity or open windows. She was likely the victim of over-breeding, which left her with a hanging belly that made her more undesirable than the other female dogs at the shelter.
But when Ronnie showed up, they bonded immediately. Now Lola is six months into her new life with her NFL dad, and she is clearly loving it!
Check them out in this adorable video, courtesy of PETA:
All cheesiness aside, Lola is a beautiful girl and clearly has a sweet, loving and fun disposition. The idea that she could have been left alone and unloved is heartbreaking. So if you have the means and are thinking about adopting, maybe Ronnie and Lola can provide the inspiration to remember that for some dogs, you may be their last shot at a chance to survive.
