Facts about Nyla
Breed: Bullmastiff Mix
Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
already spayed and a special needs pet.
I am already spayed and a special needs pet.
Nyla is a sweet fun happy girl She is looking for that home who loves the big dogs but also understands what goes with having one. For Nyla in particular, she has already received one surgery for a cruciate (ACL) tear thanks to Friends of the Shelter but she will undoubtedly need a second in the next few years so her new home needs to be prepared for such a financial ($3500)and recovery (6-8weeks) event in the future.
Nyla is crate trained and housebroken and does well with other dogs however no cats, inside or outside, in her new home. She is eager to please and very food motivated but sometimes doesn't know her own size in her excitement and can inadvertently knock someone over so older kids in the household are recommended. Fenced yard or dedicated walking companion is a must - Nyla is not off leash material.
Vet reference required. Nyla is in foster care so if you are interested in meeting her, please complete an adoption application including your veterinary information and submit it via the website, via fax to 614-525-6658 or in person to the front desk. Once your application has been received and processed, we will put you in touch with Nyla's foster mom to arrange a meeting.
Life of the Party I think everything is fun, interesting and meant for play, especially you. Anything you do, I'll want to do too. With my own brand of surprises, life with me will keep you constantly on your toes, and the fun is guaranteed.
