CALL ME LAYLA 

I'm a little package, okay some say itty bitty, adorable cross breed of half Chihuahua, half Dachshund, sometimes known as the "Mexican Hotdog" or the "German Taco" which is seriously messed up? And the names don't stop there. How about "Weeniehuahua" or "Chishund" it's just so embarrassing. Just to get away from all the name calling I learned to clear a 3.5 feet half-door. You heard that right! I can hurdle a half door, just like a mexican jumping bean rushing to the dash hound races. Dang it! They got me doing it. As you probably have guessed, I'm an active, full throttle energetic 4 year old (all 13 lbs of me) that is quite adorable, charming and smart, if I say so myself. Did I mention, I do well with other dogs, its just a sidebar, but a good thing to keep in mind as you read this.

You might be wondering how I got to Paws in the City. Well, not from jumping a fence, but as an owner surrender, who by the way kept me outside 24/7. Me! A little borrowing "snuggle bug" left to the elements, wildlife, dogs and mosquitos. I was shocked and thankful to be heartworm negative. All it takes is one bite. Obviously a German Taco or Mexican Hotdog wasn't on any mosquitos menu. WHEW! 

Having a Chiweenie is a commitment since I could live to be 16 years old, which means we still have lots of years to be together and play. I love to play and have your (or older kids) attention when we play ball or chase. And I'm devoted to my family, okay some would say territorial, but also makes me a good watchdog. I'm small, but have a mighty bark. No one will get past me while I'm on duty.

Do you like to travel? I make a great travel companion! I'm easy to carry in the car, or on a flight, and I love adventure, just as long you're near me.

So if you are ready to commit this kind of time to loving and caring for me and want to be in a long-term relationship then take a leap of faith and click that button so we could meet. Our forever love story is just a heartbeat away.

About Paws In The City

About Our Rescue Group...

Paws In The City® is committed to supporting the City of Dallas Animal Shelter by hosting off-site adoptions for the dogs and spay/neuter education and fundraising through specific outreach programs.

Paws In The City is a nonprofit, 501 (c) 3 organization committed to ending overpopulation, abuse and neglect of Dallas dogs and cats . We are an all volunteer organization with no paid staff.

Paws In The City is committed to the following goals:

 Rescuing homeless dogs and cats from the City of Dallas animal shelters by sponsoring off-site adoptions to find these abandoned animals terrific, loving homes…often many of these wonderful pets are days away from being euthanized simply because there are not enough homes... a tragedy we are determined to end;

 Providing a comforting and positive environment for adoptions;

 Providing medical care to neglected, abused, and injured animals through our outreach efforts;

 Educating the public on responsible pet ownership; and

 Supporting spay and neuter programs…the simple, common sense solution to ending the number of unwanted dogs and cats on our streets and in our city shelters.

Our Adoption Process...

Requirements to Adopt a Dog in Foster Care: Before adopting, we require an approved pre-adoption application, an interview, a home check, a signed adoption contract and an adoption fee (dogs=$200 / puppies=$250 / cats=$125) to cover the animal’s health-related expenses and boarding while in our care. All of our animals are spayed or neutered, are current on shots, tested and de-wormed.
