ADOPTED ON 08-15-15 - Aila is your typical puppy, and is loving exploring the whole new world around her, now that she is no longer confined to a small pen at the dog pound. She was recently pulled from the Winnsboro, Louisiana dog pound on April 18, 2015, she is a 7 month old German Shepherd / Black Mouth Cur mix. She is approximately 38lbs, and super sweet and enjoys being with other dogs.
Aila’s current foster home has 10 other dogs ranging from the size of 10lbs-62lbs. Her southern foster Kim tells us that everyone in the pack accepted her right away. She has a calm positive energy about her, and listened to the other dog’s cues. She also interacts very well with humans. Although, Kim has only had her a little over a week, she looks to her for direction and comes when called. She's first time being on leash was last Saturday and she picked it up immediately. She has not yet been around children, but her new home may possibly include them. As she was just recently rescued, we are working with her on jumping. She is not a crazy hyper dog, but being a typical puppy she gets a little excited when she wants to see you. We are actively working with her on this behavior, and she is learning very quickly not to jump. House training is a work in progress, as she is a puppy and still learning. She sleeps quietly in her kennel at night. She has only ridden in the vehicle once to date, and did so in a crate.
Aila is a sweet, smart inquisitive girl. Her ideal home would be an active family that will provide her with daily exercise and include her in their activities. She absolutely loves to be outside, and would love to be your hiking buddy! She is very food motivated and pays close attention to her humans. This should make training a breeze. It would be excellent if her new family would take her to puppy class to help her learn some basic manners, and continue with socialization. She interacts wonderfully with other dogs, and pays close attention to their cues. She would love it if her new home included some other four legged friends. She has not been around cats to date. If you are looking for a companion who would be happy to be by your side whether you are doing yard work hiking a 6 mile trail, then she is the girl for you. She is loving exploring this big new world and she wants you to explore it with her! Please fill out an application if Aila sounds like the right match for you.

About Our Rescue
These dogs deserve all of our attention, and in Rescue Dog Village, we are committed to our adopters and our dogs equally. We offer full disclosure and hope to make the best matches possible. Please know our adoption fees never cover our expenses. We rely on the generosity of our adopters and supporters to help us help the dogs.
Our rescue is ONLY in the business of offering FULL DISCLOSURE to adopters, and expects and hopes to engage your questions and concerns fully. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families/adopters who might consider welcoming our charges into their hearts and home. Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members. It's sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don't want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It's that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that's our goal!
Our rescue volunteers will be more than honored to be in touch with you directly and promptly, after receiving your application and conducting a mandatory a veterinarian check. If you have never owned a dog before, please submit your application regardless, and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. TAKE NOTE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR SPAM AS SOME RESPONSES FROM US WIND UP THERE WE'VE DISCOVERED. Also, take care to contact your veterinarian to let them know a member of rescue will be inquiring about your pet history!
Thank you for respecting that we all donate our time to saving these animals, and understand we value your philanthropic and compassionate desire to help be part of the rescue team. That said, you'll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory. If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can't continue rescue if we don't do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted trainer will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you've submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well
