My name is Laya and I was purchased when I was 3 months old and then when I turned 6 months old I was left at the Montreal SPCA. I was very terrified and extremely traumatized
My foster family with CAA Rescue saw my story and just had to help because they knew that me staying at SPCA hiding at the back of my cage terrified that my chances at finding adoption with a loving family especially this time of year with all the abandonments were really zero to none.
So I joined them in foster care and it was a little bit of a ruff start seeing how I am scared of my own shadow! Just getting me into the home was a challenging that first night but they were very patient with me and we made it through!
It is clear that no one showed me anything in life so all these new things are really scary for me but I am learning to trust my foster family so that if they say things are ok I am a little more willing to try it out
I was not house trained when I first arrived but in a short time we have gotten to 90% house broken. Now with only the occasional accident usually when I get over excited and happy
It is clear no one ever walked me on the leash the first 6 months of my life because it really is something totally new to me! To desensitize me, my fosters are walking me late evenings so that I can get used to the quieter sounds of life. And so I am slowly learning about leash walking but clearly a home in the city or apartment life won’t really suit me. I need a calmer environment and especially a fenced in back yard because the one thing that does make me truly happy and care free is playing in the yard.
I am also pretty vocal at this time, when I get nervous or when I want some more attention I am not shy to let everyone know so also for this reason apartment and condo life will not work out for me
The great thing though is that I have been left alone for up to 6 hours and was uncrated and there was no destruction and I suffer from no separation anxiety at this time in foster care
I do live with a resident senior boston terrier in foster care and I am dog friendly just sometimes a little too playful. I am a typical lab baby who can be go-go-go all day long! I have met other dogs as well and when introduced well in a comfortable environment I do great but when I am on walks I am scared of them (but I really am just a nervous nelly on walks period! So perhaps as my confidence grows on leash this will change) I have not been cat tested. And while I have met children I do not live with any in foster care. At this time I think I should be living in a home with no children or children over the age of 12 who can be respectful and understand just how much more I need to learn
I am nervous about car rides as well but with positive reinforcement techniques I am learning to get in and out of the car so making a lot of great progress
At this time in foster care I show no signs of possession or aggression
I am a typical puppy that if I don’t get my energy out I will get naughty stealing whatever you leave lying around! This is why it is really very important to me that I have experience doggie people adopt me who will understand that even though I am 6 months old in my knowledge and training I am more like a 3 month old puppy. I have everything to learn!
I am your typical smart lab though, I am learning so fast in foster care and the more time my adoptive family spends with me the quicker I will become that awesome canine citizen that I want to be and know that I can be
If you come meet me please do not be put off by my shyness or nerves as it takes the time that it takes for me to trust new people and new environments. But maybe if you bring yummy treats in your pocketses I may be a little more inclined to come over and say HiYA! Just watch me with my foster family and you will be able to see what life with me will be like
I am not ideal for a first time dog guardians, city life or apartments or condos
I do love people and really want to please; I love attention and just want to be loved back. I am a real good and smart girl I just need someone who has the time, patience and energy to love me for all my days and show me all the great things there are in this world to be happy about
