FUN FACTS: Layla's favorite spot? The couch!! Layla is a very affectionate, loving girl who has been through a great deal - but she's come through shining! She had to have hip surgery upon entering rescue due to being hit by a car, but she's recovered nicely Layla is an adventurist, and she will bolt if given the chance (hence being hit by a car), so she needs someone experienced and dedicated to make sure she doesn't do this - this understanding and commitment is paramount. She will need a 6ft fence to be safe from potential escape, ALWAYS on a leash outside of the fence, and watched at doors. She loves to run and play, flashing her big smile when she's having fun. 

Layla is possessive of her toys, treats and food with other dogs, so while she's fine with medium to large dogs, this must be understood. She is a bossy female and isn't afraid to put them in their place should they try to take something that's hers. She's a princess who demands her authority. 

To people she's a dream. She loves to lay beside you and watch tv, go on long walks, and follow you around the house. She does, however, expect her food to be prepared and served ON TIME. That's the rule. Break that rule and you'll be called names. But you can save face by just giving her a kiss or rubbing her belly...her other 2 favorite things. 

Layla is house trained, doggy door trained, and rides well in the car. She's great at the vet, and is an overall superb gal...not to mention absolutely gorgeous. If you're looking for a buddy for walking, hiking, curling up with for your favorite movie or as your sidekick when you're out and about, Layla is the dog for you.
