Aila is looking for love! This sweet little pocket pittie is approximately 2 years old and just over 30 pounds. Aila is fully grown, but looks a lot like a puppy, and sometimes even like a baby hippo! Aila’s big brown eyes make Disney characters jealous.
Aila was found chained to a porch of an abandoned house. She went to the local shelter where she was very frightened and shut down. Rocket Dog fell in love with this sweet girl and decided to take her into our family!
Aila is small – smaller than she looks in her photos – but this athletic girl is mostly muscle! She has mad jumps and practically flies when she runs around her foster parents’ yard.
Aila has come a long way and blossomed in her foster home. She has learned how to use stairs, the joys of snuggling, and is working on learning basic commands.
Sometimes Aila still needs help being brave, like on walks – after spending an unknown portion of her life chained to a house, there is a lot in the world she’s never seen before.
Aila is very social. She loves meeting new dogs and warms up quickly to new people. Aila loves to play, and is not afraid to ask other dogs to join her. She’s happy to be the social director of a doggy group, helping everyone share in the fun.
As hard as Aila likes to play, it’s nothing compared to the intensity of her snuggling. Aila is proactively affectionate, loving rubs and snuggles any chance she can get. She loves to press against you, and sometimes when enjoying a face or belly rub she almost seems to purr.
Aila also has long periods of the day where she likes to nestle in a blanket or on a lap and nap away. Aila loves chilling on a couch for movie nights or binge-watching.
Aila is a very social girl, and would do best in a home with other dogs – she is a young dog with plenty of energy, so both she and her owner will benefit from her having a playmate to tumble with!
Aila is very sweet-natured and would do fine with older, dog-savvy kids who will be part of a patient household with dog-training experience. Her best teachers are other dogs so she will do best in a home with a confident dog who can help her along. She has also stayed in a home with a cat and did well.
