Hello, my name is Layla and I would like to share my story with you. I have been in the Bark Ark shelter for a long time where I have been waiting since 2018 and was overlooked time and time again – until Paws2Freedom came along. Now I finally have a chance and I so long for my very own forever home where I can feel safe and loved.


My story is a very sad one, but unfortunately not uncommon for a stray dog in Bosnia. I used to live on the streets here in Prnjavor where in my desperate quest for survival I went from house to house, begging for food. Sometimes someone fed me and sometimes someone chased me away. That was my life. I never knew what would happen, but I had to keep hoping and trying. One day I gave birth to puppies near one of the houses and the people kind of took care of me until my puppies where big enough. Then they wanted us gone and called The Bark Ark team to take us all away. That was the day we ended up in the busy shelter, waiting day by day, week by week, month by month ... year after year. 

For now I am still in Bosnia, waiting for transports to start again so that I can make my journey to England. If you would like to support me a bit I would be ever so grateful. Please mark your kind giving with ‘Layla’ and your funds will be put towards my costs.

And/or if you would like to apply for giving me my forever home please complete an application form as a first step. But please bear in mind that not much is known about me at this stage and that I may never have experienced home life/life as you know it in the UK, so you would therefore need to be realistic in your expectations and at this stage it will not be acceptable for me to be rehomed with small children or cats as Paws2Freedom hasn’t had the chance to assess me yet. Thank you so much from my hopeful little heart and graceful paws ~ Love, Layla ♥
