Layla came into ARF’s care along with her puppies, and now it is time for Layla to find her own forever family! She is house trained and will easily let you know when she needs to go out. She sleeps through the night and has never needed to be crated as she is respectful of all things in the household. Layla is extremely well behaved and relaxed in the home, no crying or barking at all. She typically will just curl up in bed or on the couch.
When out for daily walks, Layla might pull a little bit on the leash if she sees something that peaks her interest, but otherwise she is a champ at strolling along. She is reactive to other dogs at the moment, so her adopter will need to accommodate this and continue Layla’s positive reinforcement training to increase her confidence. Layla is curious about other dogs and seems to want to meet them but is unsure how to do so. For this reason it would be best for Layla to be the only dog in her home environment.
Layla loves long walks in the park and meeting people. She is shy at first but absolutely loves the attention. She has had contact with very young children and has been nothing but gentle and an absolute lady with them. Although Layla is currently living in foster care in an apartment setting, it would be wonderful for her to have her very own yard to play in.
Layla has tested positive for heart worm and is also receiving antibiotics to treat Lyme disease. For this reason, ARF is looking for a loving family to welcome Layla into their home as a foster-to-adopt candidate. She will receive treatments for her heart worm (paid for by ARF), and once cleared by our vets the adoption will be finalized. This gentle girl who has been through so much already in her young life, deserves a caring family who will love her through recovery and beyond!
Layla has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and de-wormed. There is nothing holding back this intelligent, affectionate, and very sweet girl from living a wonderful life! Won’t you consider providing that to her? She will love you forever for it! To apply for Layla, click on the ‘adopt-me’ button below.
