Meet Nala!

Introducing Nala! She is  a 6 month old Shih Tzu/Chihuahua mix (yes, you read that correctly - we know who mom and dad were!). She currently weighs 9lbs and will likely be 11-12lbs fully grown. Nala loves to play and is a happy, silly puppy. She just can't get enough of her hooman snuggle time though when she finally crashes for a puppy power nap. Nala came to us very undersocialized, but has blossomed over the last few weeks with the volunteers! She will need a home where her adopters will be committed to providing her with lots of opportunities for socialization and helping her along with the basics of housetraining, walking on a leash, and learning her basic commands. Nala is a total fan of small dogs and would LOVE to have a young, small, playful canine sibling in her furever home (large dogs are very intimidating for her). Connecticut adopters only please! If you would like to learn more about how to make Nala your next furry family member, contact Tracey at
