Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first
ADOPTED ON 05-29-21 Every once in a while we come across a sweet pup whose sad situation and lonely existence breaks our hearts and that’s when our wonderful rescue angels jump into action. This is the case with Shayla, a sweet, little girl who had been on her own, as far as anyone could tell, for most of her short life. Shayla had been spotted by several people roaming near a church, then by a restaurant about 5 miles in the opposite direction. It took a little bit of time, but someone was finally able to catch her. It was surprising that she had not been hit by a car, or been met with a worse fate. Shayla was skinny and covered with ticks, but finally safe, and in the care of people who would help her.
Spud loves Shayla, he is trying to get in the video too.
He will be posted soon.
An English Foxhound mix, Shayla approximate DOB is 01-19-21 and she around 25 lbs. She is a surprisingly happy-go-lucky little pup who has a tail that will not stop wagging. She seems to love attention, which is no wonder, having been all alone for some time. She has beautiful markings, and is an overall delight.
Shayla will be ready to come up from LA very soon in search of her forever home. When deciding on a breed that is a good fit for your family, doing some research beforehand will benefit everyone, including the new pup. The Foxhound is an affectionate, gentle and sociable breed. It is the epitome of what serious dog breeders strive for: beauty, balance, and utility, with grace and strength. These pack-oriented, scent-driven hounds are gentle and sociable, but are hard-wired to hunt, and are swift and powerful. We also recommend that children and new dogs never be left unsupervised, as both can be unpredictable in new situations.
Shayla had a rough start. How sad it must have been to be so young and all alone, no home or food, and with no one to love her. But that has not dimmed her spirit. She is a happy girl and will make a wonderful addition to an active family with children or a couple who enjoys hiking or day trips to the beach. Shayla deserves a house full of love and security, a place where she won’t have to worry about where her next meal is coming from, and a family that will keep her safe. We don’t want Shayla to have one more lonely day. Are you the family that Shayla is looking for?
