Hi everyone. My name is Layla. Yes, just like the song, but what it really means is "dark beauty". I'm a 12 months old girl and I'm mostly German Shepherd Dog. I weigh a svelte 55 pounds. My foster family thinks I may be part Border Collie (or possibly part flying monkey... they are not sure which). I have a nice plush coat and bushy tail with bi-color markings. Everyone says I look like my big foster brother Zander, but I have a much cuter nose.

Anyway, my favorite things to do are running around pestering my big white foster brother Denver, furniture hopping (who needs floors anyway), and when I finally tire out, taking naps with my pack and foster dad. I like going for drives and meeting people too, especially at the hardware store, or just walking around the neighborhood. I also like to drive down to the shop with my foster dad to work on his car. There's a lot of cool stuff to climb on there!   

I really like my foster family and have already learned to walk on a leash, eat with their pack, and to sit and stay. But they do have a lot of lame rules here like "stay off the dining room table" and "don't jump over the baby gate" and "don't steal my sandwich"... geez these people need to lighten up.  

My perfect forever home will be with a family that will love me and have the energy and activity level to keep up with me. I'd really like to be with someone who will teach me to complete in a dog sport like agility or rally where I can really show off my natural skills and high energy. I should be available to adopt within a few weeks. I just have to go to the vet next week to get "sprayed" or something. In the meantime, if you know someone who is ready for an active, fun and sweet girl like me, have them get in touch with the nice people at BAGSR! I’ll be waiting with my foster fam in Folsom.
