Nala is a 2-yr-old, 60-lb husky cattle dog mix. She was found as a stray with her mamma and 2 siblings at 8 weeks old and adopted shortly thereafter. The people she loved and trusted the most recently gave up on her and surrendered her back to the rescue because they didn’t train her properly and were struggling with her behaviors. Rather than work with a professional, they adopted a puppy into the already full house with 4 kids and 3 dogs and threatened to put Nala down.
Giving the rescue less than 48 hours to respond, fortunately our long time foster who adopted her mamma stepped up and took her in. While she was heartbroken to be abandoned by her family, she has adjusted well to an active home with daily walks and is responding to corrections to address some of her learned reactivity and resource guarding of her new humans.
We would like this (still) young pup to find a new family that is active and willing to continue to enforce boundaries and training to help her feel the most secure and confident. In exchange, you’ll be rewarded with a companion that is absolutely devoted, willing to please and loves to hike and play fetch. Be ready to share your pillow! She is definitely a cuddle bug.
Please schedule a meet and greet and get to know Nala.
