May I introduce Lyla who will be 2 in October. She is not yet spayed but is microchipped and we are told her vaccinations are up to date. She has been with her family since 14 months of age having taken her on from a friend. Being rehomed as her owners cannot give her the training and socialisation she needs. This is what our volunteer has to say about her:
“Lyla is a lovely girl who sadly has not had the early training and socialisation she needed. Her original owner had Lyla and her brother and struggled with his health so their training needs were not met. Lyla relied heavily on her brother and the other dogs in the house for confidence. Sadly the owner passed away and Lyla was moved to her current owners without the other dogs losing her comfort and security. Her lack of training then turned into fear reactivity and the current owners do not know how to handle it.
Lyla is walked on a harness, is very strong on the lead and on the look out constantly. Lyla just needs someone who will start again with her, show her the world isn’t a scary place and rebuild her confidence. She will need time to settle and know you are her people before working on outside issues.
Lyla has lived with other dogs previously and I think having another probably male dog would help, but time would be needed and existing dog well socialised and confident. Lyla has also lived with a cat and ignores it. In a new home with initial precautions taken then she should be able to again. She cannot live with children and if visiting ones she would need to be separated.
Lyla just needs a chance and time.”
Can you help this girl please?
Lyla has been adopted.
Poor Lyla’s life was cut way too short as it was found she was suffering from multiple medical problems so her parents let her pass peacefully over Rainbow Bridge.
