Pet of the Week: Nala

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Nala, a mixed breed adult female available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say about her:

Nala is a dreamy girl ready to go home and give you all the love and attention your heart could desire. She is a gorgeous pup who runs on the fuel of pure love! Although she is three years old, when sufficiently motivated, she can summon up puppy-like energy.

For example, when she sees someone she knows coming to visit, she’ll jump straight up in the air to do her signature dance (read “enthusiastic bum wiggle”) to greet you! When out on walks, Nala quickly goes to the bathroom and then is eager to sit with her walker, offering her belly and ears for rubs. She just loves to play and romp with her people — her energy is contagious!

Nala has been on a few sleepovers and people say she is the model house guest. Apart from sincere (and sometimes successful) puppy eyes to join you in bed, she listens and follows house rules. All she asks for is plenty of cuddles, a patch of sun to snooze in, and a few treats thrown in for good measure. She sits on command and we think her love of treats could be easily used to train her further.

Nala would prefer to be the only dog in the home — she does not want canine competition for your affections! She is all about her humans — to give love and receive love is all that she wants in life.

If you’re looking for a lively snuggle bug to fill your days with kisses and bum wiggles, come meet Nala!
