Sex: Spayed Female
Color: White

About Layla:
I’m a happy, friendly, strong gal who is looking for someone who enjoys the great outdoors. A perfect day for me would include going for a long walk, playing, and then snuggling up to my family. My previous family was hit with medical health problems and couldn’t take care of me the way I deserved. They did the most loving act, and now I am ready for my next journey in my life. I am very good in the house, even already house trained! If you or your family loves going on fun walks and would like a best friend to join in on the fun, you might be the perfect match for silly, adorable, goofy me. I need to be the only dog in the home, staff can tell you more. If you’d like to know more, ask any staff person about me.
