According to Layla’s previous guardian, Layla lived with two other dogs, ages 6 and 8 years. When both females were in heat, Layla would bark and growl at the other female. The Behavior Department recommends that Layla be placed with spayed female or male resident dogs that match her calm sociability.

She was muzzled due to this behavior; She kept growling at handler though tolerated some touch. Upon being approached again, she snapped towards handler. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/25/17 Layla was tense and wary, growling, and lunged during her initial medical examination.

RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Layla has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has tolerated very minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Layla has displayed fearful behavior in shelter, she displays no social behavior towards handlers and attempts to increase distance and avoid contact. Because she is so uncomfortable, Layla does not tolerate any form of human-touch and has snapped upon direct contact.
