Some things to know about Darla: Darla will need to be the only dog in the home. She is very affectionate and loves to be with people. Walks on a gentle leader due to leash reactivity.

I am playful with my people but after I get my zoomie on I am all about the cuddles and my even try to work my way into your lap. I am not a fan of kennel life and wondering why my fabulous wiggle butt has not landed me a home of my own yet!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
