Laika is a big dog with a shy personality. She’s been through a lot in her short life and needs love and attention to regain faith in humanity and become the best companion we know she can be. We’ve given her some time and her true personality started to show: she is curious and loves playing, she can be serious looking at you with her deep brown eyes, or she can be goofy with her tongue coming out in the funniest smile.

Sadly, Laika was abused as a puppy. She was abandoned and had to find her way by herself. When she arrived she was scared of cars and loud noises, she was weary of new people and other dogs. Now she is learning what love is and she’s starting to be the puppy she should have always been.

You can visit Laika and give her some love at the Isla Animal Shelter at the Mundaca Palapa.
