The wonderful staff at the shelter really helps with the adoption process starting with a cheerful hello when you arrive to the round of congratulations when you find and adopt your new family member.
David, my son and Kristina's brother, is taking Layla for her first walk around the back yard. She did great! So curious and excited about her new home!
The shelter staff guess that Layla is a Shepard/Collie mix (I wonder if there is a touch of chow with that purple tongue) and about 8 months old. We did have her fixed before we took her home and she is still a big groggy while on her introductory tour.
If you are looking for a new family member visit your local shelter. Adopting from a shelter is always preferred as it saves a life! Remember to always have your pet spayed or neutered!
