Nala means the loved one in an African language:
Cocoa Nala is a chocolate lab retriever mix, approx. 2 years old. Cocoa Nala is fully housebroken, Cocoa Nala was pulled off A death row list in California, by a rescue who a couple months later closed their doors. Facing a return to the shelter, Rompin Paws stepped up to bring her to Washington and give her a Better chance to find her forever family.
Cocoa Nala had an awesome Foster in California that worked with her, trained her and took her to agility classes. She listens well, loves attention and would make an awesome hiking partner. Cocoa Nala is mostly Chocolate lab, She is roughly 42lbs
Cocoa Nala is scared of some men, so she takes a little while to warm up. we have been working with her here to meet every person who visits the rescue and have everyone give her a treat and it is working really well. She is developing trust again with all people. When she receives a treat, she will lick the givers hand.
Cocoa Nala is an awesome dog and just needs a patient family or woman who will work with her. She loves her country walks and looks forward to them every day. Housebroken, knows basic commands, a slap happy girl who loves life, cuddles and hugs and will make a loyal companion for the right family. she has bonded really well to my personal chow-shepard mix so she will do well as an only dog or as a companion with a gentle male as a mentor
Cocoa Nala is shy of strangers but warms up with trust. She starts out with barking and being concerned, but if you ignore the bark and put your hand out she will start licking you, then with some sweet words and a treat, she is ready for play and cuddles.
Cocoa Nala will make an excellent watch dog and will be sure to let you know when strangers are about. Nala does love living in the country and we would love to see her go into a home on land and where her family will take her for walks or runs in the woods and fields.
Cocoa Nala is spayed, microchipped, current on all vaccines and rabies. we regularly treat her for worms and parasite as a control.
We would also like to see her new owners continue her training and enroll her in a good dog behavioral training school. she is intelligent and learns quickly.
