Meet Nala! Our majestic 3 year old female bullmastiff.
The Bullmastiff breed is intensely loyal to their family and has well-established protective and territorial instincts. This definitely rings true for this girl as she can be a bit weary of strangers on her property. We are looking for a home that will help her build her confidence and give her the love and affection that she desperately seeks. Nala loves to run and play in the yard and will thrive with moderate lower impact exercise to keep her joints healthy.
Nala is definitely a staff favourite with her calm, cuddly, quiet demeanor. She is very easy going, has grown up around children and seems to quite like their company, however supervision is important to ensure appropriate interactions. She has been playful with some of the male dogs in shelter and prefers them over other females. She will need slow introductions to other dogs and someone who has experience with large, protective breeds would be best for this strong girl.
She has not been around small animals or cats in our care, so we cannot predict how she would be in a home with them, however she does show interest in cats and would most likely chase them if given any chance. Nala is strong-willed and will benefit from a calm and confident owner who can guide her through life and work with an Animal Kind trainer so she can learn through fun, positive training methods.
Nala will be the perfect addition to any family who will make her part of their pride!
