Layla is a 6-year-old cream colored American shelter dog who is available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth. Layla is a docile, sweet and intelligent girl who knows lots of handy tricks. She enjoys stuffed toys with squeakers, belly scratches and nice long walks along the beach. Layla does need to be the only dog in the home so she can have all the attention to herself.

An adoption fee is required for all adoptions. Animal Allies uses the “Meet your Match” adoption program designed by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The program evaluates an animal’s behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter’s preferences so you take home a pet you really click with. Call 218-722-5341 or visit animalallies.net for more information.
