One morning, Nala’s family decided to get rid of her, like discarding an old sofa. After 12 years, her family felt that Nala 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 vetted, Nala is finding her comfort level slowly but surely and is even regaining weight. Nala loves her food and for the moment eats a veterinarian diet. The foster family 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.

Nala is a little love ball that has evolved a lot in recent weeks. We are able to give her big hugs and Madam sits and gives her paw before each meal or treats—the epitome of politeness!  Despite her age, Nala is a very playful and dynamic dog.

The little senior loves both long naps and endless walks. She loves to walk outside. As soon as she is presented with her leash to go out, she becomes excited! Nala does not like to be alone and her future family will have to have a flexible schedule – with no more than 4 hours away at any time. She will have to go out regularly, because she can not hold her bladder for a whole day. A fenced yard where she can be out regularly is preferred.

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.

We do not know Nala’s past, but are committed to ensuring her future with a calm, patient, and experienced family who shares the rescue mindset. No young children SVP.

Nala is fully vetted, spayed and microchipped.
