About Nala

“Hi I’m Nala!! I’ve had a rough start in life, but I am very gentle and sweet, and am looking forward to finding my forever home. I was brought into AARCS’ care with injuries to my legs which have since healed.

My foster mom thinks I’m very well behaved and I’m learning basic commands quickly. I’m quite shy, but with a little support and lots of love, my confidence will grow. I love having belly rubs and especially having my head scratched (hint, the sweet spot is right behind my left ear and I just melt into a puddle of joy if you scratch me there).

I would do best in a calm environment, as loud noises and too much action make me nervous, but I am quite content to snuggle up at your feet and will follow you anywhere. I’m still getting used to climbing steps, so I would do best in a home with a yard and minimal steps to get into or out of the main floor. For this reason, apartments/condos are not a good fit for me.

I’m just looking for love!” – xo, Nala

Do I Need Special Care?

Yes, Behavioral Special Needs - Nala is working through fears of her environment; flooring, doors/thresholds and new people. She will need patient and supportive adopters to help her through this.
