  1. Awww!! She is so sweet. I wish I could take her out of that hellhole :-/ Plz someone get her out of there!

    1. Done! I saw they had a few more now too so included those as well. Thank you for sharing the Shelter Pets of the Day. I really appreciate it.

      1. I always try to share. I do know that if they are seen their chances are so much better of finding a home. To bad so many shelters don’t realize this. and Thank you for the G+ button

  2. Is this dog wearing an I.D. collar? Put on at the shelter? Maybe they are working on losing less pets this year? One can hope.

    Lovely looking dog. Can someone in that are post her on Craigslist maybe?

  3. She is an owner – all of the pets are supposed to wear a blue (boy) collar or pink (girl) with ID numbers on them…. Have been there when the wrong colored collar or no.collar has been on the pups.

  4. Just wanted to update everyone on Lovely Layla! She left the shelter late yesterday and is boarding at a local vet. She had a few sniffles (no great surprise with MAS dogs) and is on antibiotics now. A great rescue will be picking her up in a couple of days and she’ll be on her way to a new furever home! I can’t tell you how sweet this little girl is — what a great companion she will be for someone!
