Nani means 'beautiful' in Hawaiian and when we first laid eyes on her, that's exactly what we thought of her! Nani was one of the dogs who didn't find a home at the end of a big adoption event. When we came across her, she was laying down with her head propped up to the kennel wall fast asleep. She is a very sweet girl, but being what we believe to be a purebred miniature pinscher, she is also curious and independent which is typical of the breed. 

It is believed that when Nani was young, she may have had a premature botched spay, which has caused her some issues with her urinary tract. She will need to be on continued medication and may require vet visits periodically. Per Nani's current owners, 'She is crate trained and stays indoors in her kennel overnight for sleeping and whenever the owners aren't home. Nani is quiet and easy to get along with,  she takes her medicine gently and for the most part has a house cat personality. She is a calm and lovey girl who loves attention and snuggles, and gets along perfectly with everyone in the family, including our children.'

We have faith that someone special out there is willing to adopt a dog with a medical history and bring this lovable girl into their life. Nani has been through a lot of changes in her life and now faces finding yet another forever family who can commit to loving and caring for her for the rest of her life. Please give this girl a chance and adopt her today!

About New Leash On Life Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

New Leash On Life Animal Rescue Foundation was started in 1997 by a group of animal-loving individuals united by a vision -- to make overpopulation, unwanted pets, crowded shelters, and euthanasia things of the past.

In 2002, the organization moved to a 13-acre facility in the Santa Clarita Valley and established their base of operations there: a haven for many companion animals who would have otherwise been lost within the shelter system. The organization also established programs to help provide locals with better learning resources, to help enrich their education as animal owners.

Today, the Ranch is a borderline magical place, and offers a wide variety of additional services, such as: boarding, training, volunteer programs, CGC certification, and much more -- the proceeds from which go directly back into the rescue efforts, spearheaded by New Leash On Life's passionate staff and proactive volunteers.

New Leash On Life has also pioneered a unique program: the Lend A Paw (LAP) program, which offer training for both shelter and already-adopted dogs to become licensed therapy dogs for visits to hospitals, nursing homes, schools for special needs students, and veteran facilities.

Today, New Leash On Life can proudly say it has been directly responsible for spaying and neutering thousands of pets, rescuing, rehabbing and re-homing over 5,000 shelter dogs from various high-kill shelters all across Southern California, as well as making a continued determined effort to better educate the community on responsible pet ownership.

Together, in coalition with amazing organizations like Best Friends Animal Society, New Leash On Life is determined to save even more helpless lives, build a comprehensive network of allies to help all animals in need (even those not in our immediate area), and make LA (and beyond) no-kill, forever!
