Nala is new

    Well.... I am not new to the forum, but Nala is.
    Few weeks after loosing my Katie (will miss her forever!!) - we got a call from a rescue we know and they got a call from an adopter. The people pretty much said - pick up the dog now or something will happen!
    We were close by - so we picked her up.
    Nala is not even a pit mix of any sort. So I am wondering, if I can stay with you guys? :D
    Her mother is Akbash and her father Karabash. Her story is on the legacyrescue.us webpage.
    Nala is about a year old, she was tortured, lost her tail to a machete, has big scars on her hind legs and all her siblings were beheaded, but her mother survived also.

    This happened in Turkey - close to the Iraq / Armenian border. She was adopted in the US, only to be chained up, not walked, not trained and not fed enough. She came to me emaciated, scared of the leash, the outside cord anyhow, the dog park, the cars - everything.....
    We are now working on her nutrition, her fears (and probably fear aggression) and on obedience.

    And I love this forum and all the good advise. So - can I stick around for Nala's sake? :)

    She is so cute. Do you know about the two week shutdown they always talk about on this forum?

    Glad you're here and congrats on your new addition! Only 2 of ours are bull breed mixes, the liver and white and the black one next to him in my avatar. The others are a husky/shepherd mix and a Basenji mix. The forum welcomes all breeds.
