ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- ABC Action News helps find homes for dogs and cats currently living in shelters every Friday morning our Pet of the Week segment.

November is "Adopt a Senior Pet" month. This week we are featuring Layla. She is an 8-year-old, 15 lb. Shih Tsu who has lots of life and love left.

According to the American Kennel Club, Shih Tsus are outgoing and affectionate dogs who love play time.

Shelter workers report Layla loves kisses and cuddles and wants nothing more than to become part of her very own family. She would do best in a home with no young children.

Layla is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200.

For more information about how to adopt Layla or other adoptable animals at Pet Pal Animal Shelter, you can call them (727) 328-7738 or go online to
