My name is Layla and I am looking for my forever home. I am about 8 years old and I am a big old goofball. I lived in a yard for a couple of years, but I have mastered being inside the house so well you would never know I was an outside dog.

I am a little skinny right know but I am getting three square meals a day and am starting to fill out and look like a proper basset. I have no idea how big I am and I still act like I am a silly puppy. I love everyone I meet and I really like to snuggle on the couch and sleep in the bed with my people. I love to play with toys and other doggies.

Last week I got to go to a dog sitter’s house for a few days when my foster Mom went on vacation. Boy was that fun! They had a lot of kids and they played a game called Pie Face and whipped cream was flying all over the place. I like whipped cream a lot! They has another Basset Hound and we had a wild rumpus and we raced the Basset 500 through the house. That Basset has never played and wrestled like that before so everyone thought it was really funny. They said we were like a couple of sea lions wrestling in the living room. Everyone was so impressed at how gentile we were. I tried out all the beds at that house and I got lots of belly rubs.

I even got to meet a cat named Rita. I passed the cat test and I kept sneaking upstairs so I could look at her. She was a really good conversationalist for a cat. One of the boys in the house was a wrestler and he showed me some fancy wrestling moves. It was really fun but I kept kissing him and he told me “There is NO kissing in wrestling!” I thought that was a pretty silly rule. I did not have one accident in the house while I was there so I have pretty much mastered the housebreaking thing. The dog sitter told me I was so long that I could really be a great counter surfer but I never got in to one single thing. I have very nice manners!

I would love to find a home with some kids and maybe even another dog to play with. Foster Mom has been working on crate training with me when she leaves and I am doing well with that. I walk really nice on a leash and everyone says I trot like a fancy pony. I am also a great navigator when I get to go in the car. I have only been at CBHR for a few weeks, but foster Mom says I am so wonderful she does not think it will take me long to find my forever home. If you need a fun , goofy and very beautiful dog then I am your girl.
