I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Hi, I’m Layla, and I’m one heck of a gal! I’m a recent transplant from St. Louis, Missouri. My foster mom thought that I was special enough, which I am, to scoop up from a private rescue out there and help me find my forever home here in Maryland. Now, I’m a part of the Picasso family and loving it.
I’m a 5 year old min pin, weighing in at about 14 pounds and have a magnificent personality. Yes, I know where to do 1s and 2s, and I even give you a not so discreet cue, stand by the door, when I’m ready to do my business. I don’t mind the crate so much; I might whine a bit initially, but don’t worry I’ll survive and the noise pollution will be minimal. I love walks and need them; fear not, neither human nor dog will sneak up on us without me making you aware. As a matter of full disclosure, I don’t know basic commands or any commands for that matter; however, I’m human focused and eager to please. I am good with older children, dogs and cats. Oddly enough, I love cats; I must have been one in a past life, and besides humans they are my favorite snuggle buddies. I like my canine pals as long as they don’t outsize me, which doesn’t take much. My perfect home would have at least a doggie or kitty companion to keep me company and for me to snuggle with when my humans are not home.
I bet you are wondering what makes me so special. I’m a gal that really needs a loving home more than most. Recently, I was diagnosed with diabetes. Like in humans, diabetes in gorgeous doggies like me is quite manageable. I’ll need to be on prescription dog food, which can be found at your local pet store. I do take insulin shots twice a day, so you’ve got be able to stomach needles; don’t worry it does not bother me one bit as long as a scrumptious treat follows shortly thereafter. On a quarterly basis, I’ll need to check in with the vet to make certain all is well, because I want to be your girl companion for many years to come.
On February 21, 2013, I will be undergoing cataracts surgery. Since my diabetes was undiagnosed and untreated for so long, I developed cataracts, but the good news is, the doggie eye vet thinks my vision will be fully restored and as long as my diabetes continues to be managed, I will be able to see forever! I am so excited to be able to see again!
