Adopt Layla

Layla is a beautiful Ridgeback that was abused as a puppy by men, children and a pittbull. We brought her home when her owners moved and left her at the house. When we got her she was scared of men and children but having worked with her over the last 4 years she is more comfortable with them.
While Layla is a large dog, she often thinks she’s a little pup and climbs onto your lap for some love.
Layla chooses her person and will follow them around everywhere. She is very soft and doesn’t like to be shouted at and will generally listen to her key words.
While Layla has not had any formal training, she is house trained and obeys key commands. She loves sleeping in the house although she generally sleeps in the kennel outside with her other fur friends.
Layla is not a big swimmer but likes to sit on the sit and watch the fun. She will need someone that is patient and that is often home to give her that human TLC that she seeks.
We have always had Layla with smaller breed dogs and she tends to overpower them to lead the pack, which may be the cause for our issues. Layla needs to be paired with friends that are her size that she won’t be able to dominate.

Layla is spayed, vaccinated & dewormed.
