Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets--and what Lola wants is a furever home for the holidays! This buttery soft bun is a beautiful rex mix, and at just 1 year old, she’s got lots of years to spend with you!

Her foster mom says "Y'all know those candies sour patch kids? Lola is the definition of them, sour then sweet, so I'm nicknaming her Sour Patch Kid! Lola had a rough past so it's taking her time to open up and trust me, but she's making progress each and every day! She's letting me pet her and taking treats from my hand, she really wants to be a good girl and I'm so proud of how far she's come! She loves snuggling up in her bed, and eating basil tops and other crunchy leafy greens, she's the cutest little muncher."

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.
