Skyla is a bossy know-it-all who likes to do things her way. But she is also funny, playful and affectionate and loves a good tummy rub (while squeaking her toy).
Skyla would thrive in a home where she gets lots of daily exercise, and having her owner home during the day. Once her exercise is sorted she is calm and quiet and will just curl up in front of the heater. She enjoys having a toy box to sort through, but sadly she is hopeless at putting them away again so the floor will be scattered with toys throughout the day.
As with all Pound Hounds Rescue dogs, Skyla must be allowed inside (this includes to sleep) so she can really be part of the family. She will also require loads of love, a comfy bed, quality food, and regular flea and worm treatments.
