Thank you, for caring enough to consider adopting a rescued pup in need of love, respect and a warm place to lay it's head fur-ever. NALA(dob 03/17/15) was taken in by a young couple who saw her through the birth of her litter after being abandoned in a rural community in Rutherford Co, NC. When the pups were old enough to leave Mom(NALA), they asked the mail carrier if she could help them find homes for them. Having worked with/fostered for our rescue in the past, she immediately called us. YES! We had plenty of room for them. Then, when she brought the pups to me, she showed me a picture of sweet Mom chained to a tree(NALA). I asked her if she thought they'd let me find a home for her and she say, 'God, yes!' So, NALA sweet baby-girl has come here to help her find her a RESPONSIBLE and appreciative FAMILY of her very own(which she aptly deserves).As stated, she is VERY SWEET(see videos), friendly, outgoing, happy and healthy and possesses a wonderfully playful, loving and devoted demeanor. HOUSEBROKEN. Walks well on a 'Gentle Leader' and is housebroken and crate-trained. She is best suited for a home with a fenced-in yard, or rural setting with another medium>large fur-buddy to run and play with. Wants to be/enjoy life with her person, wants to please and snuggle against her favorite person at night but satisfied with her own sleeping area/crate IF required. Would make an excellent hiking/running buddy for an active person. NOT a couch potato, but enjoys snuggling with her people immensely, at the end of the day. Gets along well with other M>LG dogs...best with NO cats and no small people(too energetic at her young age, might playfully tip them over). This pup is in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until the following SATURDAY after her fur-ever family/person is approved. Upon request, we will be happy to send you more videos and pictures of this pup interacting with her H4S buddies, to help you get a better understanding of their personality and activity level and how they interact with their people and other pups. PLEASE, copy and paste the application provided below into a new email, answer each question thoroughly(the more/detailed info, the better your chances of being approved), and send to howlin4spirit@gmail.com --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Adoption fee: $125 iincludes spay, micro-chip, Parvo-Distemper-Lepto, Bordatella and 1 yr Rabies vaccinations, parasite-free, current on monthly heart worm and flea/tick prevention, Martingale collar and leash, and current health certificate (issued within 3 days prior to transport). Where there is a scent hound or guardian breed being considered for adoption, & in homes where children reside or will be visiting, a secured(not electric) fenced-in yard is required.

She was rescued from an outdoor kennel where she and her sister, Leisel, had lived their entire lives. Howlin4spirit rescued and placed their daddy just 2 months prior to these 2 cutie-pie's arrival at Howlin4Spirit. They were timid and scared, never having had much interaction with humans. But, are warming up nicely, and appreciating being a more integral part of our little pack, and realizing that humans can be kind, loving and gentle and have THE MOST EXCELLENT TREATS in their hands and are willing to share them with scared little dogs(especially compared to their past diet of cheap dog food and bread). Howlin4Spirit is looking for a kind WOMAN/retired with time and lots of love and patience to share with either/both of them. They would be best suited for a home with their own safe fenced-in back yard, and a tie-out cable line(for Liselle), Kayce is already coming to us, kissing our hands, always searching for yummy treats and a loving hug.

Thank you, for caring enough to consider adopting a rescued pup in need of love, respect and a warm place to lay it's head fur-ever. NALA was taken in by a young couple who realized that she was pregnant and had been abandoned in their community. They were approached by their mail carrier along her route, who keeps an eye out for dogs/pups in need of being rescued and rehomed. NALA has a genuinely sweet personality, is healthy and possesses a happy, fun demeanor. She walks well on a Gentle Leader and is housebroken and crate-trained. She is best suited for a home with a fenced-in yard, or rural setting with another medium>large fur-buddy to run and play with. Wants to be/enjoy life with her person and wants to please. Would make an excellent hiking/running buddy for an active person. NOT a couch potato, but enjoys snuggling with her people at the end of the day. Gets along well with other M>LG dogs...best with NO cats and no small people(too energetic at her young age, might knock them down). This pup is in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until the following SATURDAY after her fur-ever family/person is approved. Upon request, we will be happy to send you more videos and pictures of this pup interacting with her H4S buddies, to help you get a better understanding of their personality and activity level and how they interact with their people and other pups.
