The September Dog of the Month is Layla. Layla is a 50.8 pound, shiny black, mixed breed. Layla was brought to the Toledo Area Humane Society August 30, 2018, by a cruelty officer. She is originally from Toledo but was neglected by her owner. Layla is the sweetest and most loyal dog you’ll ever meet. Layla was brought to the Humane Society dirty with scabs, incredibly long toenails, and her teeth had tartar but had no major medical problems. She is between 2 and 5 years old and is fully grown. She’ll rest her head on your lap, her warm, chocolatey eyes gazing back at you. But, she’ll never pass down playing fetch. Layla loves to run and get the ball, then bring it right back to you to play again. Layla is great with young children since she’s very gentle. She doesn’t bite, but loves to give you licks! Layla would be a great companion and best friend to any family who gives her the love she’s been longing for her whole life.
