This pet is currently being listed by Shelter Chic ---- Get to know Layla ---- Status: Pending Adoption

If you have any questions about fostering or adopting Layla please contact Shelter Chic directly at and

At only one year old, and approximately 15lb, little Layla has had a rough beginning to her life, yet somehow, this plucky little girl has not let it get her down. She is still sweet, friendly, playful and loving.

Tiny Layla was found as stray in appalling condition, her skin was raw, she had almost no fur and she was obviously very uncomfortable. After weeks of tests and trying various medicines, we got the awful news that Layla was suffering from a rare skin disease. Klebsiella is an often drug-resistance bacteria which in Layla’s case has been coupled with a Staphylococcus infection. Because Layla’s immune system is so weak she has been unable to fight it off herself. We now have Layla on new course of medicine and bathing routine. We know that with the never ending love and support of her foster mom, Layla will be ready to go to her forever home in no time.

Unfortunately we cannot tell if Layla will relapse or have more skin infections in the future. This may be a one time occurrence, but she could have seasonal or year-round allergies and she may get more skin infections through her lifetime.

Layla is looking for an active family who wants to take her to the park, play games, go for long walks and have fun training her. She is not lap dog that only wants to snuggle...although she does love to snuggle!

If you think you can give Layla all the love she deserves and would like to meet her, please go to or follow the link below to complete an application to adopt.
