There’s a quote that says, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” When it comes to animals, however, they are always a treasure. Sadly, not everyone realizes it, as in the case of a beautiful Pit Bull named Layla. This sweetheart was not only dumped at a high-kill shelter, she was considered a senior at 10 years young, was pregnant, and suffered from heartworm – the odds were stacked high against this girl. How cruel can you be to sentence a pregnant dog to death?! Thankfully, Guardians of Rescue saw Layla as the valuable treasure she is and pulled her from the shelter, changing her life forever.

Though all of Layla’s puppies, unfortunately, crossed Rainbow Bridge, Layla received medical care, learned what love and kindness were all about, and even got a forever home! Layla was adopted by David and Lisa, and judging by the grin on her face, it’s a match made in heaven.

Talk about man’s best friend! David is getting all the cuddles.

Thanks to Guardians of Rescue and Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue, Layla’s life is now full of kisses, cuddles, and she is absolutely living her best life.


Please remember that adding a pet to your family is a lifelong commitment that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Make sure every member of the family understands that a pet should be cared for in sickness and health, in good times and bad – just like you would any other family member. Also, be sure to look into temperament and activity levels and ask in-depth questions about any pet you are considering, just to be sure you make the right match for your family and lifestyle. Additionally, having a pet can be expensive. From healthy pet food, vet bills, beds, toys, grooming, and more, be sure that you can financially handle caring for a pet now and in the future.
