Sweet Little Layla Needs a Home

Layla is a small pup who is very sweet, but very unhappy living at the shelter.

Layla is not the most noticeable dog at the shelter. As a matter of fact, the reason she caught my attention is because I thought her cage was empty. She was shrunken down in a back corner, looking very scared and sad. When we got her out of her cage, I learned that Layla is very shy and timid, but very sweet. She was happy to be held and cuddled but didn’t really enjoy being out in front of the other dogs’ cages for pictures, so I didn’t make her suffer through that for too long.

Her age is not known, but she is still very young. Poor Layla was found as a stray in the streets of Douglasville, and she has been at shelter for almost a month. She's so little and cute, I just can't figure out why she hasn't been adopted. Can you help little Layla find a home where she will be more comfortable and receive all the love she’s missed out on in her short life?

If you’re interested in adopting Layla, please visit the at 1755 County Services Road (off Cedar Mountain Road). The shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. They are closed on Monday.   

The adoption fee for all dogs and cats is $25. All pets are required to be spayed or neutered within six months of adoption. Yearly rabies vaccinations are also required. The Douglas County Animal Shelter can be reached by calling 770-942-5961. To learn about other animals available for adoption from the Douglas County Animal Control, view their adoptable pet list.

I visited with Layla yesterday, and she is really the sweetest, happiest puppy I've seen in a while, just a little scared of her surroundings! (I don't blame her!)

I also want to add that if anyone's interested in Layla she's not in the puppy room - she's actually in a cage in the big kennel! Some of those puppies get overlooked because people assume it's all big dogs.

Just an update: Layla is still at the shelter and she's been moved to an outside cage where she is much happier, but I think she would still prefer a real home!
