Layla in Tallahassee, FL


Here is Layla with her new family…

Meet Layla, an adorable tricolor Cavalier who just turned 3 years old on February 5th. She is a small Cavalier and a bundle of sweetness, weighing just 9 pounds. In spite of her young age, little Layla has been through a lot before coming into Cavalier Rescue.

Layla came to us when a very kind family rescued her from a breeder after having had three pregnancies, including one miscarriage. They saw her as almost a puppy herself… sweet, small and shy. Knowing Layla was a Cavalier who needed some love and care, they wanted her to have the opportunity to live life as a carefree dog with a forever family. So, they contacted Cavalier Rescue USA, and the rest is history.

Since Layla has been living with her foster family, she has made great progress with house training and socialization. Her foster Cavalier siblings have been great mentors for Layla, as she follows them to do her business outside – both in the backyard and on leash walks. Her new family will need to keep her on a regular schedule to do her business, as she’s still learning how to let you know when she needs to “go”.  She’s been a quick learner, however, and has had very few accidents. A gentle family who is home most of the day to work with Layla on her house training routine would be best.

Layla is very comfortable with other small dogs and will nap with her foster siblings, but also likes her crate and will go there completely on her own. Toys don’t really interest Layla (probably because she never had anyone who played with her), and would be better in a home without young children.

Little Layla has been spayed and is up to date on all her vaccinations. She is a good eater, and since being on a good diet, her coat looks much fuller and shiny. Layla has been hesitant to jump up or down onto the furniture – probably because she’s never lived inside a real home, but her foster parents are working with her on this since she’s perfectly capable but lacks the confidence to do it.

Being a typical Cavalier, Layla loves being close to her foster family and follows her “mom” wherever she goes. She has decided that she likes sleeping with her foster siblings on the big bed, but is also fine sleeping in her crate in the same room.

We think we have found a great home for this pup, so aren’t taking new applications for her for now.
