Nala is a chocolate lab retriever/Shar-Pei mix, approx. 2 years old. Nala is fully housebroken, 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 and Almost Eden Rescue stepped up to give her a Better chance to find her forever family. Nala has an awesome Foster that worked with her, trained her and took her to agility classes. She listens well, loves attention and would make an awesome hiking partner. Nala is mostly Chocolate lab with a sprinkling of brindled Chinese Sharpei (ears) she is roughly 45lbs
Nala is scared of some men, so she takes a little while to warm up. we have been working with her to meet every person possible 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.
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
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.
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 nature.
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 very good dog behavioral training school
