Nala was brought in as an Owner Surrender due to owner moving, and being unable to bring Nala. Nala is a 6-year old Spayed female, and has been with her owner for the past three months since his mother, who was originally Nala’s owner passed away. Owner says as far as he knows Nala doesn’t have any injuries or health concerns, and when asked what he likes most about her he chose that she was friendly and smart.
