Layla's Story...
**Layla is a courtesy post and is not part of Operation Education. If you have any questions about her or are interested in making her part of your family, please contact Lee at 859-533-3438 or lmhoag2@g.uky.edu.**

Layla is the biggest cuddlebug you'll ever meet, and probably the most playful dog out there. She loves going for walks, rides in the car, and she likes to chase laser pointers. Layla is as much a part of her family as anyone else, but following a few bad events, she and her sister no longer get along, and as much as her family wants to keep her, they feel it would be best to find her a new family that will care for her, love her, and make her feel at home.

Her previous owner did not socialize her with other dogs or people, so she has some fear based aggression with that. She would do best in a house with no other animals, and it would help if she was adopted by someone who has a reasonable level of experience with dogs, especially with obedience training. She spent all of September at NashvilleK9 and was extensively trained and socialized, then spent another 12 days there toward the end of October for some touching up and a few more learned commands. She did very well in her training, but she still has socialization issues with other dogs, and it takes her a few tries to warm up to strangers, especially in her own house.

If you have any questions about her, please feel free to contact Lee. He is willing to arrange for meet-and-greets, and is more than willing to keep in contact with whoever adopts her if they so desire. Layla is almost 4 years old, is spayed, up-to-date on all vaccines, and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Layla, a Christiana American Pit Bull Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier for sale in Christiana, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Christiana.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Christiana already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Christiana breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Christiana paves the way for another one to be saved.
