Layla here, and I am super happy to meet you! In fact, I’m super happy to meet most humans. I am a happy-go-lucky gal who truly enjoys being in the company of my trusted humans. I love to soak up the sun outside and soak up all of the love and attention inside.
I am house-trained (but may need a pee pad if you’re away too long) and crate-trained. I get along well with cats and other dogs, but I feel safer with dogs my own size. I am the perfect snuggle companion and would love a home with a couple adults where I can be your number one cuddler.
I have to admit, I do have a bit of a dark side when it comes to dog toys, I love to tear them up and show them who’s boss. But, I have no interest in chewing up your favourite shoes or anything. If another animal tries to take my toys away from me, I sometimes give a bit of a warning growl because I do like them all to myself. I will snuggle up with another dog once I’m comfortable with them and know that they’re my friend.
I don’t like to bark a lot and generally keep pretty quiet. I behave perfectly on a leash and love to go for walks and car rides, anywhere my humans like to go. I will come when called, especially if there’s a yummy treat at the end.
My perfect home is one where I will be treated like a superstar. I want all the pets, kisses, and snuggles. I would love to be your little shadow, following you around all day and having fun together.
Medical note: Layla was given Pro Heart 12 on June 6, 2021 (this medication protects from heartworm recurrence for 12 months) and therefore only requires Nexguard each month for flea/tick preventative until May 2022. In June 2022, she will require a new prescription of Nexguard and Heartguard or Advantage Multi for year-round treatment.
All dogs available for adoption with Second Chance Animal Rescue Windsor-Essex come fully vaccinated, including lepto, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and heartworm tested (and are on heartworm/flea preventative while in our care). At adoption, adopters receive a 6-week free trial of pet insurance.
SCAR does not have the resources to adopt animals to the United States and we can only adopt within a 200 km radius of Windsor, Ontario. Please do not apply if you do not live in Ontario, within 200 kms of Windsor.
