Nala is a strikingly beautiful and tall 2 year old Pittie Mix living in a foster home in Chicago.

Nala is housebroken and crate-trained.

She loves toys, especially Kongs and treat balls.

She is a ball of energy! She adores being outside and romping around. Once she has tired herself out, she loves nothing more than to curl up next to you on the couch and watch Law & Order: SVU.

She knows basic commands, such as sit and stay.

She is a social butterfly! She seems to do best in group situations.

In her 2 years, Nala has been adopted, boarded, and in 3 foster homes. Her original owner surrendered her due to the owner's health issues. In boarding, due to anxiety and boredom, she licked/gnawed all the fur off her front paws. After a brief stint in a dog trainer's foster home, Nala earned her basic training stripes and has since come light years from the dog everyone said she was.

Nala NEEDS a home with a fenced-in yard. All she wants to do is run and play, and her current foster home, a condo in Chicago, is not meeting this need.

No one is perfect, and here is what Nala could work on:
She does not know her own strength. Her tail is what we like to call a "Wine Glass Destroyer." Sometimes she can be a bit mouthy. She does have separation anxiety, but who could blame her after her transient life? On walks, Nala sometimes lunges at other dogs, so we simply cross the street.

Nala's ideal forever home would be a family with previous large dog experience, older children, and space to romp. She would do best as the only dog.

Once you stare into those soulful tan eyes, you'll be a goner. Can we please get this girl the forever home she so rightfully deserves?
