Lyla is a sweet girl looking for a loving, patient home to call her own. She was found on the streets dragging her hind legs around until she was finally rescued and placed in the shelter. There is a belief that she was possibly hit by a car. Luckily, she was placed in a caring foster home but is still looking for her forever family!

Lyla is gentle toward people and the other dog in her foster home. She wants all the love anyone can give her and greets people excitedly at the front door with kisses on the face! She can be a little shy at first with strangers but warms up quickly with her sweet personality. She loves stuffed toys and bath time and does well when left in a crate. She will need to live in a household that is patient and understanding of her injuries as she has lost the ability to use her back legs and struggles with incontinence. If she can find a home that is full of love, she will be forever grateful. Can Lyla be your new best friend?
