Adopt Layla

This pocket pitty, known as Layla, showed up at a firehouse in Newark in early February 2022. Her tail was mangled, had a cut on her head and her muzzle was bruised as if it was taped or zip tied shut.

Brick City Rescue responded to the firehouse call and we took this sad girl under our wing. Layla’s tail had to be amputated due to the amount of damage that was done. But that doesn’t stop Layla from “strutting her stuff”! This beauty is smaller than most of her mixed breed, but she has muscles! She loves to play with tennis balls and squeaky balls alike. She will walk to the park with a tennis ball in her mouth and she will play keep-away. She likes you to think she won’t give the ball back, but she eventually gives in so you can throw it again.

Layla loves car rides! During her walks, she will approach your car and you have to tell Layla that you are not going for a ride right now. Silly Layla has even jumped in to a strangers car in anticipation of a ride.

Layla loves people. She will meet a new person and immediately give her belly for some rubbing. Layla is treat motivated, so you can pretty much train her to do anything. While Layla is respective of children, she would do better in a home where the children know how to give Layla her space to relax. We suggest children over 10.

Layla’s stats: Weighs approx 45 pounds, UTD on vaccines, spayed, housebroken, crate trained (although she will protest for a few minutes), loves car rides (excellent passenger) and food motivated. Layla prefers a quieter environment. While Layla does prefer to be the Queen of the Castle, she is able to be walked with other dogs (pack walks) and is not reactive to other dogs on walks as long as they are not in her space/face.
