*as of 8/6/2019
Hi I'm Nala, my name means successful, and that is exactly what I am determined to be. Though, maybe it should have been "Rowdy." As you can see, I am the prettiest girl ever. What you may not be able to see is how confident and assertive I am. I know what I need, and I am not afraid to let you know. I love, love, love to play with all of my bigger brothers, and I can certainly hold my own. I love to cuddle and give kisses. I am extremely smart and learn just by watching others. I am destined to be the best helper my recipient will ever have, and I believe I can be. Thank you for supporting me, and believing in me too.

It's been another awesome month! I have gotten 4 new little brothers. I found them to be a little annoying at first, but have come to realize they don't mean too. I need to be a big sister to help because they need my help. I did not come to this conclusion over night, so I have had work on my manners a lot this month, but I've also gotten better at my numbers, and my colors this month. I am excited to learn my A, B, C's and how I can help my handlers.
I love to get ready in the mornings. I will share how that's going with you some time, but before I go I want you all to know how thankful I am for your giving to me and this program. It's not only their helping to give me and my handers purpose, it's saving lives, so thank you all so so much. I will write again soon!
November 2019 Update
Hi everybody! It has been an awesome month. I am learning a bunch more stuff like numbers and colors. We practice numbers using kibble, so I love it. I am also learning how to use my we-leash. It really makes me feel confident and I like to show off to the boys. I turned 6 months old on 10/21/19, so I got to celebrate my half birthday. And guess what?! My puppy raiser is taking me trick or treating on Halloween an I get to dress up and everything. It's going to be so much fun. Well, thank you all for all your help. I will write again soon!
October 2019 Update
Hello world! It's everyone's favorite lil lady, Nala. It's been a really exciting month. I am learning so much. Everyone knows I can now hold my own with my bigger, sticky brothers, but I am learning to be confident around new dogs I meet and play with. I tend to get really happy when I see people I know and pull on the leash, so my handler is helping to remind me to be easy and to act like a lady. I am getting better and better. I am also learning to make choices for myself and I love it! So far my favorite exercise is when I get to choose whether I want cheese or peanut butter. Either way is a win! Thank you all for your help. I couldn't do it without you. I will write again soon.
September 2019 Update
This is Nala barking at you with my first update ever! I am learning to walk easy on the leash right now, but I already know what to do with my “we leash” and I love to use it. I am learning what all of the things in my current home are and what they are used for, sometimes by what they are not used for first. Also, I am learning what to not put in my mouth. I am a puppy so I am very curious, but I also learn very fast. My favorite thing in the whole wide world right now is rawhide. If you put a little peanut butter on it and hold it for me you will become one of my best friends. I enjoy my naps, and I love my fan. Come back next month for another update!
