Layla is a Mal-Shi. And what’s a Mal-Shi, you ask? It’s a mix of Maltese-Shih Tzu. Two-year-old little Layla was found as a stray on April 25th. Normally, she would have been taken to the Lancaster County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. However, the shelter was closed to new intakes due to a potential distemper outbreak. Luckily for Layla, a kind volunteer with the Humane Society of Lancaster South Carolina offered to take her home as a foster. Layla was severely matted and had a cherry eye. She was also heartworm positive.
On April 27th, Mary Reimers with the Humane Society of Lancaster South Carolina contacted RADAR requesting help with Layla’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed to assist. Her heartworm treatment took place May 31st.
Mary shared this with us this about Layla: “She is super sweet and loves people. She enjoys sitting on your lap and snuggling in bed. She is very used to a routine. At 10 at night she just jumps in her bed and doesn’t want to be messed with until 7 the next morning! She loves children. She is good with other dogs as long as they aren’t overbearing with her. She gets along well with cats that live inside. but will chase them outside. Cannot tell you enough how much RADAR’s help is appreciated!” Layla’s cherry eye will be corrected in early July (paid by the Humane Society). To see more photos of Layla, click here.
RADAR paid all of Layla’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $250.
