Hi there! My name is Lightning but my foster family has been calling me Laila because they think it fits my personality better. I am so excited to meet you!  I’m a four year old lab mix, I’m housebroken, and my favorite thing is to be around people. I love the idea of a family and I can’t wait to join yours! I’m a really good girl and I want to do all the right things, so if you teach them to me, I’ll be great. Do you have a yard where I could run? That would be amazing! I really like playing with other dogs, and I love attention and snuggles from people. I’m good with kids too.  My foster family thinks my old people mis-treated me but that doesn’t make me bitter. I know I’m going to be part of a great new family who loves me and I can’t wait! I’m so excited, my whole butt is wiggling!
