A volunteer writes: Layla is a tubby girl, so to say she is worth her weight in gold is really a compliment…and she is!! She is incredibly sweet and an absolute JOY to be around. She has been great on leash with me, seems housebroken, and takes treats like a charm school grad. Her wiggly back end is set into motion when I talk to her, and not long after she manages to drape herself across my lap! She has some itchy spots, and when I hit them she topples over into a belly rub position (and simultaneously scratches her back as she shimmies against the ground — clever girl!). She has previously lived with children and a small dog, doesn’t have a history of any resource guarding, and is said to be cooperative for baths! She loved to be in the same room as her owners and we’re told she has a medium activity level. I think she’s destined to be the best couch PITato ever! Layla is already spayed and could brighten all of your tomorrows…starting with today! She’d love to meet you at Brooklyn ACC!

Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
According to Layla’s previous owner, Layla has spent time with a small dog that she was very tolerant of and played somewhat rough with. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Layla hard stared and became stiff at the gate before lunging toward the greeter dog. She was muzzled before being allowed into the pen. Once in the pen, she lunged at the greeter dog and the session was ended. 6/7: Due to Layla’s past experience with other dogs, a muzzle was placed on her. She displays stiff body language and hard stares at the greeter dog through the gate. Due to the greeter dog’s reactivity, she was not allowed to enter the pen.
