Well let to cut a long story short...

We have another dog Layla.

She is a dogue de bordeaux.
Layla was a rescue from a irrisponsible breeder she was over bred skinny,dull coat,and LONG nails. She was neglected.

My Uncle took her in, after getting permission from the land lord.
However after a few months the land lord said she had ot go. So we took he in around 2 weeks ago. My Uncle had not given her proper care and she was still not in great condition.

We did plan to rehome her (HAHAHAH YEH RIGHT) we have fallen in love with this very special girl.

She can now live out her days with love and care.

MEET LAYLA















As you can see form the pics she is still very skinny.. But she is much happier now with dogs to play with ...

oh i love Dogues I love you

i would however have her to the vet to check her eyes for Entropian/Ectropian. Ita a very painfull /uncomfortable condition to live with,and can be corrected with a surgery. just from the photos it looks like she 'may' be affected by it.

she is gorgeous ,i'm jealous.......

Ah your talking about that horrible eye lid curly thing right.. "dont get the fany names"

We had a good look she did have a little "conjunctivitis" and very ICKY ears so down to the vet for some cream and medicated ear wash stuff. She is looking alot better now.. (no sign of Entropion or Ectropion) Very Happy

She's gorgeous Emma. We were looking at this breed just before we found Wilbur. I also have a couple of customers with the dogue de bordeaux. Beautiful dogs.

Fantastic to hear she is now to have a good home to retire in. WELL DONE.

I also have a Layla - because in some African launguage or other it means "night born", my Layla was born at abround 4am. Your Dogue looks gorgeous - I didn't think she looked too lean?? obviously a real cantankerous temperament Very Happy

Have fun

oh yeh her temperament is PERFECT.

Yeh the pics dont show you very well and her skin covers alot of the rib area but she is a good 10-15 kg under weight(acording to the vet). Her spine and hip are not as prominante as they were, so she is gaining alittle.

We have been told that the breed is hard to get weight back on.

We dont want her to gain to fast and get fat rather than have some good muscle and alittle pudge Razz
