Stray mastiff weighing barely 40 pounds on the road to recovery

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - A mastiff is getting a second chance at life after she was taken in by Maricopa County Animal Care and Control.

Layla came in as a stray on Saturday, weighing barely 40 pounds. Animal control officials said she should be about 85 pounds or more.

She is currently being fostered in an employee's office.

MCACC spokesperson Jose Santiago said in many cases, a dog like Layla brought into a shelter would be put down immediately.

Layla will be taken to a local veterinarian Wednesday for a full examination. The Two Pups Wellness Fund is covering the medical expenses necessary.

Once they know if she is OK medically, MCACC will place her into foster care to get her weight up to normal conditions.

    TUCSON-A group calling itself Tucson Bikelife terrorized motorists for nearly a year.  They taunted law enforcement through social media and issued a challenge, “Catch us if you can”.  The group rides motorcycles, and ATV’s on the streets, often taking up two lanes.  They preform stunts, and do wheelies, and also run through red lights.
