Layla

You would just love Layla. Her foster mom says she is lovely, and we agree. Layla is a 1-year old, 53-pound golden retriever/hound mix. Layla came to the shelter due to the death of her owner. She has a medium-short length, red-colored coat. She has the appearance of a hound, especially with her long ears and pining eyes. She is super sweet with a hound’s laid-back nature.
