This cute short, tan-haired hound dog mix is looking for a guy to hang with. Layla is currently available for adoption from Pets Fur People in Tyler.

Layla is ready to celebrate her 3rd birthday in April and is looking for someone, preferably a guy, to give her a place to call her own as a birthday gift. She' weighs sixty-five pounds and has been spayed, is current on vaccinations, including rabies, and has been microchipped for identification purposes.

According to Gayle Helms, Pets Fur People's Executive director, she says Layla prefers the companionship of men more than women, but we're pretty sure she'll warm up to anyone over time. As she looks up with those brown eyes, you can tell she is ready to give someone all of her love. She will go home with a starter kit of food, bedding, a collar and leash and a certificate for half price on basic obedience from Tyler Obedience Training Club.

For additional information on adopting Layla call 903.597.2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website.
