Layla

1yr old Female Husky Mix

Layla came to us as a mother with puppies, who have been placed in forever homes except for Goose – he still needs a home too! As we do for all our mother dogs, we had her DNA done – see her results in the photos! Layla’s family has had her since she was a puppy, and unfortunately was forced to move abruptly, right after her babies were born.

Layla spent 2.5 weeks outside in a yard with her newborns before we were able to take them in, and this mama is just the sweetest. She loves humans and wants to be as close to you as she can get. She will snuggle on the couch happily – but she also is still very much so a puppy herself and has tons of energy. She plays great with the other dogs in the home, large and small, and shows no aggression towards them at all – even when they would get near her babies! She has a TON of energy, so another young playful pup or two would be fantastic for her.

She lived with small children prior to coming to rescue and grew up with them, so we do think she would be ok with kids, but as always recommend close adult supervision. Layla definitely needs some work on training and doesn’t always know her own size, so she could jump on (or try to sit on) a child simply because she wants affection so badly.

She needs continued training and currently does NOT do well in a crate, will beg VERY close to you (working on that), and will try to counter-surf – the good news is that she stops immediately when you catch her and scold her and puts her ears back in apology. She wants to be a good girl, she just needs consistency and direction.
