About Nala

Lab / Australian Cattle Dog
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female

This young girl is now named Nala. She was part of a surrender that included several dogs. She has had little to no socialization but is curious and will come up to sniff you when you are in the kennel with her. She isn't sure yet about being handled but is definitely curious. There is NO aggression whatsoever. She just has never had anyone actually try to pay attention to her. She lived in horid conditions. Had never seen a vet, had never had a shot. She isn't sure how to eat out of a dog bowl because apparently was just fed by dumping food on the ground. Obviously she isn't housebroken. She will take some time, patience and lots of love. She is young - between 9 months and a year old. She looks like she inherited more of the 'lab' look from her heritage. We are told that the older female on the property (which was a Heeler) was the mom to all. The two older intact males - one was a lab/terrier mix and the other one was probably a lab/flat coat retriever mix. She is being spayed on Tuesday 5/18/21 - we are certain she isn't pregnant as she is in season now so we got her out quick enough for her to be spayed without having to go through a bby having babies. We did give her shots as we unloaded the van last night and she will get his Rabies vaccine and a heartworm check on the 18th. The road to recover for this baby is going to require work and lots of patience and love. Once she realizes humans are good to her we believe she will make quick progress. She will be available on a foster to adopt program. We will not adopt her out directly - we want to make sure she is making progress in a new environment.
