History : Laika is an abandoned dog, that’s why we can’t tell you anything about her life before the shelter.
Personality : With strangers she is a bit odd, perhaps because she did not have much human contact in her puppy stage, but with the shelter volunteers she behaves receptively and affectionately.
We’re looking for : She is a dog that requires a lot of dedication and patience, and it would be necessary for her to find a family that already has a guide dog to help her understand that her life can change and she can be a happy dog in a home.
