Female - 7 years old
Hi, I’m Lyla! My best physical characteristics are my ears, face markings, and my front legs that dance when I’m excited! My foster mom loves how I dance and prance on my front legs when I’m happy. I also love to come onto the couch and rub my face on your face before I start playing with my foster brother and sister. I also will kiss you right in your mouth!
I hear I wasn’t very well taken care of before I came to my foster home, but it doesn’t reflect on how I interact with my foster family – I love my 8-year-old foster brother and 7-year-old foster sister – they play with me so much and it’s pretty much the best thing ever!
I am potty and kennel trained! I reluctantly sleep in a kennel at night, but I have a really comfy bed in my kennel that I curl up into. I know drop it, sit, go get it, no, leave it, go potty, go outside, play and sooooo many other things! I have not taken any training courses yet, but I am pretty well trained, as I am a wise gal. Love from my humans and treats are all the motivation I need. I am pretty calm most of the time but I get really excited when I’m playing with toys with my humans, I love to play. A squeaky ball is my favorite, tug-of-war with a rope is fun – basically any toy is my favorite!
I didn’t live with children before until I got to my foster home but Lexi (7) and Jaiden (8) have shown me that kids are so amazing to play with – I follow Jaiden around a lot to play and I love to snuggle Lexi on the couch. I have not met a cat or small animals. I would probably be super curious at first, but I’m pretty gentle and when I’m told no, I listen. I live with two other dogs – Simba (a Volpino) and Belle (a Chihuahua/Dachshund). They are much smaller than me, I try really hard to play with them, but they are a little scared of me. I would just love to roll around with them! I understand that when another dog says “no” I need to stop.
My foster mom tells me that even though I was not well taken care of, I am one of the best dogs she has had. I love everyone around me, I interact with new dogs well, I walk pretty, I play nice, and I was kennel trained within a couple days. My foster mom tells me she loves me a lot so that’s awesome!
In my forever, I would really love to have another dog that plays gently and knows when to stop. Kids would be a really nice plus because I love children so much. My dream day would consist of playing, snuggling, going outside, repeat. Would love to meet you!
