CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (AP) — A rescued English bulldog mix named Lola who got her forever home thanks to a New York hospice has died of cancer.

Hospice Buffalo confirmed Lola's passing to WGRZ , which featured her story when workers at the facility took her in last November from a group called Joyful Rescues.

Lola was about 9 years old. She had been rescued from a high-kill shelter after spending much of her life as a breeder in a puppy mill.

The hospice staff decided Lola should sleep at one worker's home and then return to her work family each day.

She spent her final months boosting staff morale and lapping up a stream of newfound love.
