A volunteer writes: Of course we all know Nala as the heroine from The Lion King, but that origin is from Africa where the name means successful. Miss Nala joined us when her family''s building unfriended dogs and comes with wonderful comments from her former owner. She''s playful with everyone including children, strangers are only that for a second before they become friends, she wants to play with dogs she sees outside, doesn''t guard her things, and enjoys being brushed and bathed. Nala was indeed happy to call me a friend, pulling hard on the leash until she went potty and then walked easier. She takes treats gently, did want to meet other dogs in the park and got her chance on a play date in which she engaged in `pushy play` with the male greeter. As I took some pictures of Nala I noticed the remnants of red nail polish on her toes....she was loved enough to get her nails painted. Awwwww.... Alert, curious, energetic and friendly, Nala is hoping to live up to the meaning of her name, successful, and find a new family or person with whom to grow old and play fetch (her favorite game). Come meet her today.
