Rehome Kayla   

kayla 02 kayla

Kayla is still looking for a new home

Kayls is a loving and friendly 7yr old German shepherd. She has had all her vaccinations, she is chipped and spayed and has a passport. She is good with other dogs and cats and children. It’s with deep sadness and regret that I need to rehome her due to my husband having to go back to the UK for work and I have arthritis in my hips and knees and I struggle with her on my own. So if you think you can give her a loving home please contact Lorraine at

lorrainemartin24 @ outlook dot com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
