Leyla's Story

Leyla is a great dog deserving of a great life! Relinquished to PAWS Chicago last November by an owner who had kept her mainly in an enclosed porch, Leyla had not been exposed to many new things. Since Leyla has been at PAWS, we have learned many things about this gorgeous girl! One of her favorite past times is any activity involving being outside. She loves walks, running on our rooftop deck, and is an all-star at playing fetch! She is also a big fan of squeaky and chew toys. Clearly, Leyla knows how to have fun and would love the opportunity to show that side of her more!

Since Leyla did not receive much socialization when she was a puppy, she finds change difficult. She is often fearful when meeting new people or in new situations and will need an experienced owner and an adults only home. Leyla becomes anxious when left alone and will do best with an adopter who is not gone for long periods. In the right home with the right amount of stability and support Leyla is sure to become a wonderful companion. Won’t you give her a chance at the life she deserves?
