Meet Lailani!

Leilani, or 'lay-la' for short, never knew that she could be a part of a family when she came to our rescue. She is just 45 lbs, and was near death with a 6-pound tumor in her belly. She just laid there and looked up at you with love, amazed that someone was talking to her and petting her. She was not used to attention...it still confuses her sometimes.

Well the tumor is gone and she's back on her feet. Leila likes her walks...if it's for 5 minutes or 45 minutes, she's good to go. She gets on well with other dogs and walks well on a leash.

What she needs is a family in a single-level home with no stairs and no cats, that will accept her love and love her back with a belly rub. She has impeccable house manners (she won't get on the bed, but if you put her there she loves it under the covers for a nap with you), is very housebroken and not destructive in any way. We are guessing her age at over 10, but she has a brisk walk and some puppy energy.

We're sure you'll want to take lots of nice pics of Leilani, and maybe even do what my Mum did, get a new camera using those handy Black Friday ads!

We found Lailani currently being cared for by Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue, in Los Angeles, California. Their mission is to find loving, lifetime homes for all Southern California Golden Retrievers in need, regardless of conditions or circumstances. We will always strive to heal the sick and injured, rehabilitate the neglected and abused, and nurture the aged and unwanted until we find the perfect family who will shower them with unconditional love.
