Layla was found on the side of a road in rural Arkansas with her buddy Cypress (already adopted), patiently waiting for whoever dumped them there to come back. What's saddest is that they waited for days right near the then-empty bag of dog food that whoever-it-was dumped with them. We got them off that remote road and to safety. And this is why we do what we do.

Layla has been grateful ever since! Despite her unfortunate beginnings, Layla is a friendly, loving and affectionate dog who has never met a stranger - - canine or human. She took a bit more TLC to get her to the beautiful condition she is in today, but she's ready and excited about her next chapter! Layla is a very smart girl and so eager to please, with just a soft gentle pat on the head as her reward. She took very quickly to crate-training and housebreaking -- she has learned "Go to your room" (which means "Get in your crate"), she knows her basic commands, and she always tells you when she has to go outside to potty. The visiting grandkids love her because she is very sweet and gentle with them -- she never jumps up on them. She is the best snuggler ever and has made her foster parents' bed her favorite sleeping spot!! (Of course, if you are not okay with that, she will sleep on her dog bed -- it's just that she just loves to be close to you!!!) She is great with other dogs, too! She and her foster's female, Priscilla, are best friends. They love running in the back yard and playing with their toys together. She is good with the cats at her foster home, just curious about them at first, but now mostly ignores them. This sweet girl has stolen the hearts of her foster parents and she will steal yours too! She will make someone or some family a wonderful companion.

We think Layla is a Black Mouth Cur mixed with some Retriever. If you don't know the Black Mouth Cur yet, search it on the internet and you'll wish you'd known about them long ago!! She is about 9 - 10 months old, she weighs about 40 pounds and she's a very healthy girl. If Layla is the Lover Girl for you, please visit www.pinkshelter.org for more information about the adoption process or click here for our online application. Full vetting, microchip and spay included in her $400 adoption fee. Transport fee is additional $150. IF YOU HAVE AOL or YAHOO PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FILE FOR OUR RESPONSE

About Little Pink Shelter - CT Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Pink Shelter is a registered 501(c)3 charity. All donations are tax-deductible.

When I started The Little Pink Shelter back in 2008, my mission was to help shelter dogs win their fight for a second chance at life; as a breast cancer survivor, I knew all too well the sweetness of that victory. Since founding The Little Pink Shelter, I have placed over 2,700+ dogs and puppies into loving homes.

The Little Pink Shelter is considered more of a "boutique" rescue, focusing solely on making an adoption successful. Working closely with select shelters and rescues in Arkansas where the pet overpopulation continues to be out of control, my colleagues and I are careful to temperament test each dog so we can understand the type of home to which it will be best-suited.

Too many wonderful dogs are put down each week because of lack of space, lack of funding and a widespread disregard for spaying/neutering and responsible ownership. The plight of these dogs and the quest to find each one a loving home is what fuels us every day.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility in Connecticut, so you can only visit The Little Pink Shelter on the internet. Our dogs and puppies are usually fostered in the south and the overwhelming majority of them are adopted out before they arrive so they can go right home after transport and begin bonding with their new forever families! Check out the "Love Fests" Albums on our Facebook Fan Page!

We are always in search of short term foster homes up here in Connecticut and the surrounding states!!! If you're not ready for a full 15+ year commitment, or if you have always wanted to help in some way, please consider short-term fostering a dog or puppy for us! Write us for more info!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the process is submitting an online application located through a link in each pet's description, or from our website at www.pinkshelter.org under the "How to Adopt" tab. Whenever possible we like to begin review with a vet reference. After that, we will be in touch to set up a lengthy phone interview where each of us has the opportunity to ask all our questions of the other. Home visits are at our discretion. Once approved, there is a contract and transport is arranged if necessary.
