Isla (eyelah) This sweet momma came into the care of VHS after being significantly attacked by another dog, after giving birth to her puppies. While half her litter did not survive, she persevered through significant injuries and has been the best momma ever. Now that all her puppies are grown and have found their forever homes- it is her time! Isla has been with a foster family who has loved helping her heal and care for her puppies. Her foster family has also loved teaching her what being a loved and valued family dog is all about, as she experience a lot of neglect prior. Isla came with a lot of protective factors, minimal manners and no understanding of boundaries, however has since learned basic commands of sit, leave it, stay and “no”. Isla can now also walk on a lead and ride in a vehicle safely. Isla is a sweet girl who just wants the opportunity to be a puppy herself. Isla requires a patient owner who will let her be a shadow and the best snuggle companion ever. Isla requires exercise and daily walks to get out all her excitement. Isla is wonderful with people and kids- and will continue to work on understanding her own size and not to jump. Isla has worked very hard to get along with the kitties in her foster home, but still has urges to chase and may be best in a home with no kitties to tempt her. She has had limited interaction with dogs while in care (due to injuries from being attacked and having pups) but did well with a couple controlled introductions. She will need an experienced owner to help her learn all about the world in positive ways. If you are looking for unwavering loyalty and a best friend to always be at your side- Isla is the dog for you.
