Layla was just 7 weeks old when the pup was rescued after being spotted dashing through busy traffic in Texas. She was taken in by Beaumont Animal Care, and at first, she seemed very nervous and shaken. But it wasn’t long before she revealed a shining trait!
Rachel Barron, a tech with the organization, was caring for the pup and speaking to her in cute baby talk when, all of a sudden, the pup flashed a big, friendly grin! It was absolutely dazzling, and Barron knew she had to take a video of the adorable and beaming Layla.
It seemed like Layla’s smile indicated that she knew she was finally safe and cared for. Before anyone at the shelter knew it, the video, posted on social media, gained viral status, and people all over the world were enamored by Layla’s cuteness.
The best part is that this helped Layla find a forever home! Adopting inquiries flooded the rescue as more and more people saw Layla’s video. One request came from Nicole Toney and her spouse. Their home is already one to a pair of cats and three rescued pups, and they knew Layla would fit in perfectly.
Their meeting with Layla went very well. The sweetheart was so excited, if a bit shy at first, to meet them. As soon as she entered the Toney household, Layla began to play with her new pup siblings as though she had been there all her life. One of them, named Lady, took a special liking to Layla due to her maternal instincts from giving birth shortly before her adoption.
Now, Layla spends her days cuddling with her family, blessing them with more happy smiles every single day! She’s found her loving home and she’ll never be on the streets again.
