Facts about Nala

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Nala was living under a portable building at a local high school. For what appears to be the first time in her life, Nala has recently began to enjoy playing with toys. She loves her toy carrot and can usually be found carrying it around in her mouth or resting her head on it while taking a nap. Nala enjoys sunbathing in the yard and napping on one of her comfy beds or in a warm basket of laundry. She is one of the happiest dogs who loves to greet you with constant wiggles, but never jumps on you. She never chews anything other than her toys and just wants to show you love all the time. She enjoys cuddling, being petted, having her belly rubbed, and giving kisses.

She loves to learn and has nearly mastered all of her basic obedience and practices it daily! She is a 2-3 year old spayed female who is a goofy and wiggly little love bug. She is in a foster home, but spends most of her time in the air conditioned garage and backyard. She is being integrated into the home, but due to a lot of furry friends in the home they are taking it slow. Nala has done great with the friends she's met! But she is a little too curious about cats and would do best in a canine-only home.

Nala is heartworm positive, but is currently undergoing treatment and will hopefully be heartworm free soon! If she is fortunate enough to find her forever family while still undergoing treatment the cost will be completely covered. Nala desperately wants a home and family of her very own where she doesn't have to share so much attention. If you, or someone you know, are interested in adopting Nala, please contact us at info.5thward@gmail.com or fill out an adoption application on our website at http://forgottendogs.org/adopt/application/ - Thank you!

About Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue in an historical area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project November of 2011 to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray, abandoned, and neglected dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with access to free spay/neuter and rabies vaccinations. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field to strays that we can not immediately pick up. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 1,000 dogs, and a few cats, from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so all donations are tax-deductible.

Our Adoption Process...

You can find our adoption application online at http://forgottendogs.org/adopt/application/. Our adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs ages 2 and older and $175 for puppies up to 2 years old (plus an additional spay/neuter deposit on those that are too young at the time of adoption: $75 local, or $250 for long-distance adoptions). Long distance adoption transportation costs vary based on size/weight/breed of the individual dog being adopted. We have an adoption application and contract. All animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, if old enough, or, for young puppies, arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
