Three-year-old rescue, Nala, looking for family to take her on day trip adventures

A gorgeous cross breed who loves treats is on the hunt for a home in Manchester. The beautiful bull breed, called Nala, is somewhat shy, but is hoping someone will take a chance on her and help her come out of her shell.

The three-year-old dog is described as a playful girl who ‘knows what she likes and likes what she knows’, and as such, needs new owners who will let her take things at her own pace.

Food is the way to this little lady’s heart, with volunteers having found reward-based training works well for her since she arrived at Dogs Trust Manchester.

Nala loves seeing her human friends and gets giddy when she knows it’s time to spend time with them, but she needs time to build a bond and can be wary of being over handled, which is why her adopters will need to be a little patient with her.

Carol Margieson, Deputy Manager at Dogs Trust Manchester, said: “Nala loves heading out on day trips so hops in the car no problem and is always up for an adventure. When she’s home and ready for a snooze she likes her own space so a non-open plan house is ideal for her so she can take herself off and chill out on her own.

“A non-open plan home will help Nala get used to people visiting as she can be anxious meeting strangers so being able to pop her into a room of her own away from the front door with some tasty treats to keep her busy when people come and go, will really help her relax.”

Nala’s ideal new home would include a secure garden where she can run around and play with her favourite toys to her heart’s content. While she’s not keen to live with other dogs, she has lived with a cat previously so potentially could have a feline friend in her new home.

She will need an adult-only home without visiting children and although she wants to be the only dog in the home, she is happy to meet up with calm, respectful dogs when she is out and about.

Nala’s adoption appeal comes after Dogs Trust are expecting an influx of dogs being turned into rescue as children return to school after the summer break. Last year, the charity received 163 enquiries to hand over their dogs on the first day of term – more than any other day during September - and during the first week of September, saw an uplift in enquiries from struggling owners compared to the previous week.

If you would like to adopt a dog from Dogs Trust Manchester, please contact the rescue centre directly.
