LYLA is a smart, energetic, eager-to-please 7-month-old Heeler/Mini-Australian Shepherd mix. She is a sweet, people-oriented dog who was rescued about 4 months ago by a family who already had 3 dogs and 2 kids. She has an easy-care merle, black and tan coat, and her tail was docked by original owner. Lyla is a wonderful companion, but needs a new home since she is too energetic for her big dog friend who has recently become disabled. So although she is totally housebroken and crate trained, she has to remain in her outside pen most of the time. Lyla quickly learns new things but is happy to have frequent reinforcement. She knows shake, sit, down, wait, and will twirl around on command. She loves to play fetch and to carry sticks on her twice-a-day walks. She does not care for a choke collar and but does well with a harness. She loves children, being in the rain, and is an excellent car traveler. Cats are unknown. Lyla is healthy, has been spayed, and is up to date on her shots. There is no adoption fee.
If you will welcome Lyla into a loving home as part of your family, please call Ellie between 8 AM and 8 PM at 520-396-4243.
