Nala came into us after she was found in unsuitable living conditions and she was surrendered to the police.
She is currently in foster in Worcestershire following an operation to remove a lump from her mammary glands.
She settled well into her foster home, her frosty mum says she is a happy girl, a real cuddle monster and loves to follow you round the house. She loves to play ball with you in the garden but hasn’t really shown any interest in other toys. She is a vocal girl and loves to sing to you when she is excited. Nala absolutely loves to sleep under the covers with you.
She has shown to have a high prey drive and would chase cats and birds if she was given the opportunity.
Sadly, she is dog reactive. Her foster mum has been working hard with her on this and she has shown improvement, but this will be a work in progress. Her foster mum says ‘she is definitely better on her walks, she still reacts, but the reaction isn’t so severe, she isn’t lunging or barking anymore.
Nala can be a little strong on the lead and sometimes pulls. She loves quiet country walks where she can investigate her surrounding without the stress of meeting other dogs.
Nala is very spritely for her age and is happy being out and about.
Her favourite is running freely in a secure field. In this environment, her recall is very good.
Nala travels well in the car.
The vet comes to the foster home to see Nala and she is always a very good girl for him.
She has had a full health check including blood tests. All her bloods came back within normal ranges.
The vet discovered a lump on Nala’s mammary gland whilst completing her health check, so the decision was made to remove the lump before it became too large. The lump was sent off to histology and the results came back benign. She is all healed from her procedure.
During her stay in her foster home, her foster mum has found her to be quite itchy. She is currently having a cytopoint injection and this has relieved the issue.
• Nala would need to be the only pet in the home.
• She would benefit from a rural home, where she wouldn’t bump into too many dogs.
• She could live with older children aged 12 years +.
• Nala is happy to be left for a couple of hours, but loves to be with you when you are home.
• She is house trained, and doesn’t chew.
Nala is microchipped and vaccinated. We are unsure if she is neutered, if not - when the time is right - the Senior Staffy Club will cover the costs for her to be neutered.
She is currently in foster in Worcestershire, but can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet her at least twice where she is now.
There is a non-refundable adoption donation of £120 for Nala and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
