BEVERLY HILLS—My name is “Ailayah”, and no, I’m not one of those little cuddly ones – I’m a big cuddly one!  I love affection, and promise to give you lots of love back. I’m a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Shepherd mix and only two years old.  Everyone comments about what a beautiful girl I am.  What do you think?
I’m best being the only dog, as I was given up because I didn’t get along with the other dog in the family, and I don’t want that to happen again.  However, I get along just great with children, as I’m really very kind and sweet.  And, beside that, I’m very, very smart – if I must say so myself!
Some more of my good points are that I’m not a barker, jumper, chewer, or guarder of my belongings.  And, I know that you’ll be happy to know that I’m housebroken.
I hope that you’re someone that likes to play ball, because I sure do. All that you have to do is throw the ball and I’ll fetch it and bring it back to you.  So, I’ll do all of the running, you just have to have a good throwing arm!
So, if I can be your one and only – dog, that is – and if I can be given lots of attention and affection, and if you can play a game of fetch with me once in a while (or more!), I can be the perfect addition to your family. Now all that you have to do is call to make an appointment to see me.
However, if a small, cuddly dog is more your style, or if you have another dog that needs a friend, I won’t discourage you, as there are plenty of all types and sizes here that need loving homes.  Oh, oh, the kitty cats just sent me a message saying not to forget that there are lots of them here that need homes, too – and I better mention them!  So, I’ll not only mention them, but tell you that you can see all of them, plus all of the dogs that are here, if you go to our website at: Then all that you have to do is call to make an appointment to see us in person – and, hopefully, want to make us part of your family. We’re all waiting for that call!
