My story

Layla 🐾❤️
This lovely 3 year old lady has been here at our shelter since 2021(half of her life), and has been looking for a place to call home ever since. She doesn't understand why no one seems to want to provide her the home she deserves.
Layla considers herself a lap dog that wants nothing but to be laying next to you and enjoying your attention or playing ball with you outside. Layla also LOVES water! Although, she loves her people so much more that she doesn't quite enjoy sharing and may not like the other furry pets that might try to take you away, so its important that this girl is your one and only. But with the amount of love she has to give, she's all you'll ever need!
This girl is also so smart that she'll know you'll want her to sit even before you ask. With an extremely treat motivated pup like Layla, teaching her your routine will be easy-peezy.
Layla is very particular about where she does her business and needs a little guidance on her potty training, and can also have some separation anxiety when her people aren't around, so it's important to find her a family that is willing to take the time and commitment to continue her training.
She can have a lot of happy puppy energy and doesn't quite understand her size compared to smaller humans, therefore she would be best suited for older children.

If you're interested in adopting or fostering this pretty lady, please fill out an application on our website. Layla is UTD on her shots, spayed, and microchipped.
