One morning, Nala’s family decided to get rid of her, like discarding an old sofa. After 12 years, her family felt thatNala had had her day and she soon found herself in a cage at a local shelter. What a shock for her! In this environment, Nala’s health began to deteriorate. In a few days, this senior girl wasn’t eating and started to lose a lot of weight. For the well-being of Nala, the shelter decided to ask Gerdy’s for help. We agreed because we believe that all pets including senior pets deserve a beautiful last few years of life!
Now in foster, and fully vett
ed, Nala is finding her comfort level slowly but surely and is even regaining weight. Here, it was discovered that her hearing and eyesight are compromised. Nala has to be approached delicately, to avoid a startled reaction. She is never aggressive, simply protective when taken by surprise. Her future home will have to be calm, safe and without children.
Nala loves equally long naps and endless walks. She loves to wander outside in the garden and feel the wind on the tip of her nose. As soon as she sees her leash and is asked if she wants to go out, she becomes super-excited! Nala does not like being left alone at home and 3-4 hours is her limit. She has to go out regularly, because she has had trouble holding it for long hours.
Nala loves to sleep close to her foster mom and can be jealous and protective with other dogs in the home, so she must be the only dog in the home to avoid any confrontation. Nala is OK with cats.
She does not like manipulation, and visits to the veterinarian will have to be done with a small muzzle. We do not know Nala’s past, but are committed to ensuring her future with a patient, experienced family who shares the rescue mindset.
Nala is fully vetted, spayed and microchipped.
