Layla is a rescue dog who I got in the summer of 2007.

A friend of our family is involved with dog rescue, and she rescued Layla from a home where she and her brother sand sisters were left outside with a dead puppy in their pen. I wasn't truly looking for a dog, but I was toying with idea. When I met her though, I had to have her!

We're not sure what she is exactly. Our best guess is plott hound, and maybe some lab? Not a hundred percent sure though. I'm happy calling her a mutt!

I can't imagine life without her now. I know she's "just a dog" but we totally treat her like our baby. She's spoiled rotten, but I don't mind. My mom says she has "only dog syndrome", because when we go to their house, she won't allow for my parents' dogs to have any attention. Like I said...she's a little spoiled! But we love her!

This is the first day I met her...

The day she came home with me.

She used to be so little!

Go here to read other people's pet posts!


  1. awwww so cute!! our neighbors leave their dogs in the garage penned up with a little crack of the garage door. We've told the homeowners but who knows what happened. I actually haven't seen the dogs or the garage cracked so maybe they came and took them. that is so great of you to rescue a dog though!

  2. She's beautiful! Ours is a rescue as well - aren't they just the sweetest?

  3. Aw, she's too cute! I'm glad she found such a wonderful home!

  4. She is precious!

    I'd definitely say she has lab. She has the same eyes and brow as my dog now (a lab-Great-Dane mix) and two labs I've had previously.

    She is a sweet heart!

  5. soo sweet! and you look so cute in those pics=) we keep talking about getting a puppy (from a shelter) but we just can't commit yet!

  6. Both my fur babies are rescues and I wouldn't have it any other way. Your baby is adorable!
