Meet LAYLANI! This 1 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix is a recent arrival from Texas! She is very fearful of the world around her and is excited to find the perfect home that she can feel comfortable. She is great in the apartment. She is very gentle and is a great companion dog. She stares at you with her expressive eyes and gentle soul and then will move closer to you, hopefully ending up just beside your feet. This is where she feels safe. Her stress starts when she leaves the house. Downtown Toronto is kind of hectic for her and we are looking to settle her into a calmer environment. A more rural area or tucked away street would be ideal for her adjustment period. She will although need support and a patient furever home to help build her confidence and help her feel happy in these types of environments. The last thing we want to do is reinforce her fears. We really want to open her up to the beauty of being rescued.
LAYLANI is also able to left alone at home (although likes being with you), she is crate trained and does not make a sound (other then the odd yawn). She is potty trained and walks very timidly on a leash. She is dog social and may benefit from a doggy role model who can show her how fun the world is! She has been introduced in parks and found happiness in making friends. She has not been tested with cats but she is calm and doesn't seem to have a prey drive. She is very gentle and shown to be good with kids but we would prefer older children.
