Dear potential forever family,

Hi, I’m Nala! A 7-year-old female Maltipoo with a big personality and glass-is-overflowing attitude.  You’ll notice I’m missing an eye and my jaw is on the mend, but I haven’t let that damper my spirit.  I’ve been in recovery mode after being attacked by another dog much bigger than me… my family at the time brought be to the vet to say goodbye, but after seeing my smile and wagging tail the vet could do no such thing!  Unfortunately, my once-family weren’t interested in seeing me through the good and the bad, so I ended up at my vet’s office who mended me up and took PAWfect care of me during the extensive 6-hour surgery to fix me up.  I literally wouldn’t be here without them!  Patience isn’t my biggest virtue, but I’m oh-so-ready to find my true forever home. I am definitely a people pup and want to be by my person most, if not all, of the time. My motto is smiles, kisses, and cuddles and my intention is to give lots of love.  I’m playful, yet perfectly content being low-key and curling up with you for a movie.  Nothing makes me happier than being by your side!  I have lots of sugar to give to my person and perhaps a bit of spice for my fellow canine, some have even referred to it as “little dog syndrome.” High energy dogs are a bit ruff for me to handle and it's probably best if I'm the only dog in my new home. I will never turn down a stuffed toy and will thrive with someone who is patient and quick to praise, but also has boundaries and confidence... that way I can let you be the alpha and I'll be able to be a fun-loving pup. If you’re looking for a BFF and whole lot of cuteness, then I’m the constant companion for you!

Our Adoption Process...

We are so delighted you’re considering adopting one of our buddies as your lifelong companion!! It is our mission to rehabilitate each animal before they are placed for adoption, which makes for a smoother transition process between you and your new buddy. Your furry friend will be vaccinated, spayed/neutered, micro chipped, and socialized. Our intention is for both you and Fido to thrive and we will make every effort to support this special bond.


Once you’ve found your PAWmate, please be sure to fill out our online application, located at:!adoption-application/c1g7e. We will contact you right away to get started with the adoption process and to arrange a meet and greet with your prospective buddy.


Now you’re ready for a home visit! It is our goal to ensure your home is safe and free of hazards, such as harmful chemicals, exposed wires or cords, balconies, and doggie doors or fences that allow for the great escape. Don’t worry, if we find any potential hazards, we will help you with buddy-proofing!


Now it’s time to sign our Adoption Agreement and collect the adoption fee.


Your adoption fee helps cover the costs for your buddy’s vaccinations, medical appointments, spaying/neutering, microchip, and training.

Dog Buddies $300 - $350

Puppy Buddies $350 - $400

Cat/Kitty Buddies $150 - $200


Now, you’re ready to begin the adventure of a lifetime with your new BFF! Please keep in mind that no matter how much your buddy has been rehabilitated before arriving to your home, there will always be a transition period. A lot of rescue animals have encountered difficult circumstances, such as neglect, unstable home environments, stressful conditions, or even past abuse. Think of how you might react to a new home environment in such a situation. Set your expectations accordingly and be prepared for the bonding process to be just that, a process. We promise it will be worth it!!
Thank you for becoming one of Beople’s People and joining our Buddy Brigade! We will continue to provide support by following up with you after 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months. We do hope you’ll be an active Buddy Alumni and continue to check in with us and drop by often!

Our buddies thank you for your interest and hope to see you PAWfully soon!
