Story
I know not to use the bathroom indoors but sometimes there’s no one to take me outside so I make mistakes. I haven’t played with kids or other dogs in a long time so I don’t know if we will get along :( but I’m a sweet boy I promise. I love car rides but I love to bark at innocent pedestrians until they rub me then I shut up and enjoy the rubbings. I love going on walks but I’m told I need a “no pull leash” because I get excited and pull too much. I know the words “no” but sometimes I like to argue back because I can be stubborn. A little training with me will take me a LONG way, I used to train the first year and I did an amazing job but then both of my parents started working again after Covid. My parents both work overnight jobs and don’t have enough time to give me all the loving I need, they are also separating so it’s even harder. I need a home with a BIG yard and a loving family. My parents will not give me up to just anyone FYI.

Story
Lyla *Currently Available for Adoption* Good with Kids & Dogs & Cats Hi my name is Lyla! I’m a 1 year old, 50lb, female hound/terrier mix pup! My friends at the rescue say I’m the Pawfect combination of playful and snuggly I like hanging out with my human and dog friends and I’m ok coexisting with kitties . My ideal family will have humans who love me. I’m happy to coexist with a cat. I’m ok with a doggie sibling as long as they’re ok with my outgoing personality, cuz I can really play! I walk well on leash & crate well. I’m still a pup, though, so please give me lots of toys so I know what things I can chew on Could you be my family?
