Meet Layla! Layla is ready to fly into your arms using her ears as wings! This girl has passed her first set of training classes and has learned so many fantastic tricks!
Layla is a beautiful Am Staffie/Pointer mix. She is living in New England in a foster home. She is just over 1 year old, up to date on all shots, heartworm, flea/tick preventative, and in excellent health, per the veterinarian.
Layla is housetrained and crate trained.
She is a great young dog, she'll benefit from a home who welcomes her and is able to give her daily time, care, love, praise, intentional training, understanding, patience, and chew toys.
6/28/11 Update from her foster Mom
We just finished the "family basics training" course and she made a lot of improvements with self control, knows basics of sit/lay down/ leave it/ come/ wait/ stay/ paw/ high five/ and is even able to do a high paw wave as if to wave hello or good bye/ roll over, she works really great with kids. She does ride well in car, she is used to riding in convertable and using dog seat belt.
The biggest challenge for the foster mom is loose leash walking- she gets it and can do it with a lot of improvement compared to where we started from, but with distraction of people/ dogs/ squirrels/ cats, she could still use more practice not presenting as a kangaroo ;). She is quite mindful of cars, and staying with her home- even when she gets opportunity to climb out of our fence- usually after a squirrel in neighbor's yard- she is happily ready to come right back.
Last weekend she had her first overnight kennel stay at Gagnon's Pet Resort and they gave her an A+ report card and wrote that she "played well with others, enjoyed all staff, was enthusiastic, a little shy at first and then quickly warmed up & had tons of fun, she was great!"
oh, the additional point with her is that, when left alone she does tend to make (in my opinion ;) ) poor chewing choices- mostly items with stuffing, she stays in crate at those times. She really loves soft blankets and a good chew toy such as an antler(they last past day one) or stuffed & frozen black kong.
She also loves to run! she looks like a small greyhound when she does! Very fast and beautifully agile! She loves to play fetch too. Most of all she wants to be with the social ongoings and loved by everyone.
She's a great girl and with still more potential for someone or a family who is all on board and understanding for teaching her what they want her to know with consistency and understanding. She is potty trained, ready and eager to continue to have positive social experiences and maybe even practice in the agility ring!
Donation: $250.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company)
Interested in adopting this wonderful dog? Please visit our website and complete an online adoption application.
The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (general health exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing/treatment when necessary)
PAWS of New England is not shelter but a rescue and thus is not funded by any city or state organization - we rely solely on the donations of our adopters to help defray the costs associated with saving these precious lives.
We are often asked, ""Why would you charge ""so much"" for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" ..... The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support ALL rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in discounted vet care, and many people will want to adopt it; an older dog with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt him/her. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others.
Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption donations. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible.
ALL KNOWN INFORMATION IS LISTED HERE. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
