Layla is a 6 year old beautiful white and liver female German Shorthaired Pointer. She came into the rescue with another dog, when both were surrendered after some unfortunate circumstances. Their original owner had a stroke, and some kind people stepped in to care for them. Unfortunately a short time later, they had to move, and they were unable to take the dogs with them, and they reached out to us to help find both dogs a good home.
There wasn’t much information they could provide about Layla, as they only had her for a about 3 months, but we have been told she is crate trained, but not housetrained. However housetraining can be easily taught when introduced with patience and positive reinforcement, and we have plenty of training tools to help you. She gets along with other dogs, and has shown us she may even be a good candidate for a cat home.
Layla is very sweet, and loves getting attention from people. She is more on the mellow side, so would do well in a home where someone is looking for a more mellow GSP, but would also be able to provide her with daily activity such as walks, play time and training. She is somewhat shy and timid, so a gentle hand and plenty of love and patience is just what Layla needs. She has so much potential, and wants to please and be loved.
We don’t know how she is around children, so a home with older children would be best. A home with another dog would be nice for her to have a companion, but not necessary.
