Nila / F / 6 yrs / 73 lbs / American Bulldog Mix
Meet Nila! Nila’s foster describes her as a kind, sweet, gentle and loving lap dog that doesn’t quite appreciate her size! ;) Unfortunately, this gorgeous girl was surrendered into rescue when her owner was hospitalized and could no care for her any longer. With people she knows, she is a snuggly, lovey girl that gives kisses and hugs, and will push her head under your hand to pet her. She can by timid and shy of new people at first, but with proper introductions, she warms up quickly. Nila does well with children provided they understand how to respect a dog’s boundaries. She loves her 3 year old human sister!
Nila is playful and high energy and needs an active family that will take her on lots of outdoor adventures. She loves any and all toys, but needs durable toys that she can’t destroy. Nila gets three 30 min walks per day and would benefit from backyard time in addition to this. She pulls on her leash in the beginning, but then settles down and walks nicely, often looking to you for direction.
She can be selective with her doggy pals, and so proper introductions are key. Nila is probably not a dog park kinda girl, but in time, and with ongoing socialization, her new family may be able to work up to this. She currently cohabiting successfully with another small pup. No kitties please!
Nila and her K9 foster sister, are trusted with free reign on the house when their family is away. Nila settles quickly and likes to sleep on her pillow. She is house trained but does get a mid-day potty break & walk. She knows some basic commands and also “paw”.
Nila is not yet spayed but will be spayed prior to being released for adoption.
Nila’s adoption fee is $450. To learn more about our adoption fees and process, please visit our FAQs at http://www.fetchandreleash.ca/faq/.
