Nala is an absolute beauty that is looking for an experienced family to be a part of. Her world was very small with little exposure and physical/mental stimulation before coming to NELR, and the change was a bit overwhelming for her at first. With consistency, positive reinforcement, and help from our amazing behaviorist/trainer she is now able to love life and experience so much more of it! We’ve been working on positive associations and reassurance, and the more she is appropriately exposed, the more comfortable and confident she gets. It’s been so wonderful to see her grow and learn, she has really been coming into her own and everyone is so proud! She has also been aided by a doggy Prozac prescription. Just like with humans, sometimes one needs a little extra help and we’ve thankfully found a great balance to help her feel more herself. Nala is trustworthy in the house but is also good about sleeping in her crate at night. She has a great time with kids and has been doing well meeting new people. She also has learned to play with and enjoy the company of other stable dogs. She has a great time on car rides because she now associates it with adventure, so she’s ready to explore with you! She has been introduced to horses and has fun going on long walks and trail rides with a mix of dogs, people, and horses. Her ideal home would be one with continued positive reinforcement and association, regular stimulating activity like long sniffy walks, access to water (even a kiddie pool can be fun!), and lots of love for your new bestie. She is ready to Hakuna Matata with you!

All of our available adoptable dogs are on Facebook, Petfinder, and our website. If a dog is no longer listed it means they have an adoption pending.

We are a nonprofit organization - all adoption fees go towards the rescue, veterinary care, and transportation of these dogs in order to get them ready for their forever homes.

We are a shelterless rescue. All of our dogs are housed in foster homes to help them de-stress and get used to a home environment while they await adoption, giving us the opportunity to understand their personalities and needs.
