Meet LAYLA

LOCATION: SANCTUARY IN WILLITS, CA.

FOSTER NOTES 5/5/20 "Layla is a super sweet and loving girl who loves pets and lots of snuggles. Layla is super smart and athletic. She has started to show her playful side as she's gotten more comfortable. She has a lot of energy and would love a lot of room to run and play. She is very smart and aware of her surroundings. Layla is an anxious girl and I've noticed can be a little timid around men, but as soon as she gets some calm pets and loves it's all over and she is melting. It has taken a week for her to feel more comfortable and calm with me.

She is very aware of her surroundings and was nervous about the city sounds at first. She can be spooked easily. Layla is a stubborn and sassy girl who is not afraid to let you know when she doesn't like something. She is afraid of things with wheels that go like skateboards, scooters, and bikes and can growl or bark as they pass. She has shown some leash aggression with other dogs but seems like she just wants to say hi and play.

Layla is smart and motivated. She is more relaxed hiking on trails than walking around the city but is starting to feel more comfortable walking around town. With some consistency and trust her anxiety would decrease. I think with a little time she would strongly bond with her owner and be an amazing loyal companion."

*Foster Notes* 4/4/20 "Layla was very sweet and playful after a long walk. Gives very gentle kisses. Loves wrestling with people. She needs help on leash as she does pull when she shes dogs. Is fearful of trucks."

Layla is an active, outgoing, athletic and super smart. Layla wants to please, she is charming, bright, engaged and ready to learn from dog savvy people with the time and devotion for a companion dog that is ready to roll!! She needs daily exercise. Ideally off-leash running - she is a great trail dog.

She is a super athletic champion in the making, and an excellent ranch dog running with four-wheel work vehicles, great recall, fast on her feet and super agile! Layla is full of intrigue, impulse (though her impulses can be controlled) she is enthusiastic, athletic and eager to take part, learn and love with outgoing people eager to have their dog be an important part of their life!

Layla is smart and can find a way out of many fences or gates... so she needs a secure high fence or to be indoors or crated when her people aren't home, she would follow people down the driveway and away if not contained! She so wants to be included in all adventures and activities.

Layla is alpha with other females but is fine with them out and about as long as there is space and action - on leash she likely would be more testy - she runs with a pack and the four-wheelers at the sanctuary as long as there is a direction, a mission, she is great - she will wrestle and play chase with the best of them! Loves water. Smiley happy girl.

Layla is not great with livestock.

Layla comes with a 20 day get acquainted period with her adoption, time to adjust to new surroundings. Please give time and patience to new adoptees, particularly dogs from the Milo Sanctuary.
$450 adoption fee

Thank you for considering adoption of a Milo Foundation Sanctuary dog. Our Sanctuary is where our rescued dogs who have had difficulty in a home in the past, have behavioral issues, or too much energy, or for some, aggression issues with other dogs, or intense stranger danger that make them more difficult to safely and happily live in urban environments. These are not beginner dogs or for the most part nor are they for families with children. IF you are looking for an easy dog to add to your family, we suggest looking at the dogs at our Adoption Center, Milo Pt Richmond. BUT, if you can offer a safe and nurturing home to a dog with some behavioral "quirks" please do send an application today. Thank you.
