This adorable girl has spent a lot of time with people, but has not had appropriate opportunities for socializing with other dogs. At 12 months of age she is unsure of herself in the company of new dogs. She is not aggressive, she just barks nervously when she sees another new dog. When given an opportunity to actually meet the dog face to face, she sniffs, says hello and acts appropriately. Once she's met a dog, she is completely fine, no problems. She is in foster care with 6 other dogs ranging in size from tiny to giant and she's had no problems. She runs around with them, hangs out and enjoys their company. She can be possessive of her toys but it's not a huge issue. She just takes her toys and runs away with them. To help Nahla learn to greet other dogs nicely, her foster family has been taking her to the leash free dog park and she does fine. She doesn't always play but she always enjoys herself and its exactly what she needs to learn to greet other dogs without barking. Given her young age and the fact that she takes direction very well, we don't see this being a long standing problem. Check out the video of her playing with a young Beagle below!

Sweet Nahla is looking for a family who have the time to take her out and help her spend time with other dogs so that she can be comfortable around them and learn to have fun. She is fantastic with people and you could not ask for a more affectionate dog; she is a pleasure to be around.
