Meet Tayla

Tayla is a most gentle 7 year old German Shepherd/Collie cross. She is no trouble to have around the house, all she asks for is good food to eat, a nice cosy place to lie down and a comfortable bed to doze on throughout the day. She loves going for a walk and having her belly rubbed. She walks very well on the lead and if taken to a leash free area will go ahead with constant looks behind her to make sure she can always see you. She has been well trained and will come when called and knows how to obey most commands. Her previous family left her at the Wyong pound with a note saying simply that she was no longer wanted. When she came into care her coat was so matted and required cutting down the back legs but after a bath and some good food, she is now the most beautiful girl. Tayla would be best suited to someone who is home most of the day as she gets great re-assurance from knowing someone who loves her is nearby. She gets along well with Charlie, our 2 year old border collie who shows her new things to do and places to go everyday. As Tayla loves following Charlie everywhere, having another dog as a companion would be a very good thing for Tayla. She only barks when a bark is needed. Once she settles in with her new family, they will be rewarded with her ongoing love and devotion. Tayla is being cared for on the Central Coast.

Tayla was adopted on 12 May 2011 after 3 weeks in foster care
