We have evaluated her and found Nala to be loving and sweet.  She will get protective of her owner.  Whoever in the home takes care of her the most she will bond with the most, because of that we have decided that Nala will do best in a one owner home.  She will need training to establish boundries and we feel with that she will make a fantastic dog.


  

1/3/2017 foster update: For an experienced dog owner, Nala's behavior is not a significant issue. It's just a matter of her getting used to her new surroundings and all the new people.

   Over the weekend, my son, daughter and grandsons were all here and obviously we were very cautious with Nala around new people. Everything went fine and no issues occurred. 

   New owner(s) need know that she is a young, energetic dog that needs some strength to control. If it was only me to consider, I would keep Nala as she and I get along just fine! However, she is too strong for my wife. I hate to have to have to return Nala because she and I have become very attached to each other in a short period of time. Keeping her in an area that is segregated from the rest of the house so we have total control has been a positive situation for Nala as she understands her boundaries and who is in control.

  It has been a great week to have her in our home and I wish we could have kept her longer. She is a great dog for an alpha owner(s) willing to put in the time and effort.                                                   


12/23/2017 foster update:  Nala is in our home: consisting of 1 senior male and 1 senior female.  She is doing well with me, the adult male, but we are being cautious with my wife and visitors. We keep Nala's crate on our lanai which we have opened up to the pool area so she can roam freely in that area except at bed time. This morning, my wife was entering the main part of the house and Nala wanted to go with her. My wife blocked her and Nala tried to nip her.  Nothing serious but we are being cautious.

Nala was not eating on a regular basis yet, and I assume she was not comfortable yet with her new surroundings. Today, I  gave her a bit of canned food first....she gobbled it down...and then she ate her dry food. Seems to be a good plan!

About Pet Rescue By Judy

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a private, non-profit rescue located in Sanford, Florida, dedicated to the rescue cats and dogs. Many of them come to us with medical needs. They are doctored to the best of our ability and resources.

Our most urgent goal is to rescue animals that are abandoned or in distress, update their vaccines, and find good new homes for them. But we attempt to be more proactive than that. It is our heartfelt desire to prevent any animal from the need to be "rescued." With that vision in mind, we take a three-prong approach through the education of pet owners and the general public about:
- proper care of animals, including correct diet of good quality food, fresh clean water, daily exercise, and lots of love
- spaying and neutering companion animals (dogs and cats) in order to prevent euthanasia and over-population
- low-cost spay/neuter clinics and wellness centers in their local community

Come Meet Our Pets...

Although many of our pets are cared for at our facility in Sanford, many others are in private foster homes. To arrange a meet, it is best to first complete an online adoption application so that we can set up a meeting. You can access complete information on our pets plus the adoption application on our website, www.petrescuebyjudy.com. Adoptions are held at our Sanford Adoption Center as well as our Oviedo Mall Adoption Center.
