Nala is a very sweet girl who was pretty quick to understand the routine in our house. She is learning a lot from the two resident dogs and my other foster dog (Mason).
We took Nala and Mason to a Boxer Rescue Awareness Day and they were wonderful NLBR ambassadors! Nala loved all the dogs and people there and wanted to meet everyone. We worked on Nala’s leash training at the Brad as well as on our walks at home. Nala wants to run after every squirrel, rabbit, bird or blowing leaf or wants to pull to meet people or dogs…she is very inquisitive and just wants to see everything in this new world!
She has a great deal of energy and her wonderful exuberance shone thru at the Brad …so afterwards we took both dogs home and let them play in the yard…non-stop for two hours! She is like the energizer bunny! Mason was "cooked" but she just wanted to keep going! She even runs and jumps over Mason as they are running together. ( I have attached a lot of pictures of them playing) She really does need another dog to live with to "drain" her energy. A tired puppy is a good puppy!
Luckily when Mason gets tired, she is happy to play by herself or with me…off she goes with her favorite little red squeeky ball! She will run with it or bring it to you to throw. She just gallops around having fun, never wanting to lie down till she comes inside and collapses in her crate. She loves it outside so my recommendations for her is to also have a fence so she can enjoy playing with her adoptive family and fur brother in the yard.
Nala loves the squeaky toys. If there are a bunch on the floor, she will go to each one and take her muzzle and push the toy to the floor to see if it squeeks. If not, she will move to the next one. Certain toys she will squeek in her mouth, talk to it, and howl at it as well.
Very Cute! She wiggles and turns when you come home and although she does jump, she does it pretty gently and when you say "off" or turn your back, she sits to wait to be petted and hugged. She is such a lovely girl.
If you have a fence and a young male doggie companion that wants a playmate please consider Nala!
