BIO: Leila came to us when her daddy died a year ago and her mom just recently had to go into assisted living and the family could not care for her. We were contacted by another rescue in Virginia that knew she'd be better in a breed specific rescue so here she is! Leila's wish list includes:
A fenced yard
Another dog to keep her company if you work
Someone that is home a lot if there is no other dog
Children 8 years or older
This beautiful girl is Leila, a 5-year-old black and tan. She is an owner surrender and was very well taken care of by her former owners. She loves going for walks and just being around you wherever you are. She does well on a leash and in the car, and loves running around the yard. Because of her age, a fenced yard is required for her.
Leila loves being around her foster brothers and does well with other dogs. Before she came into rescue, she was in a home with a cat and we understand she was okay with him also. When Leila first meets strangers, she barks a little but then comes up to them to greet them.
Her favorite thing is to just be around people. If you are sitting on the couch, Leila will be right there with you. When you come home, she will give you quite a greeting to welcome you. And when it’s time for bed, she’s going to want to be right there with you too.
If you are looking for a friendly and cuddly companion, Leila is the girl for you!

=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
