Adopt Me: Nala is a big girl with an even bigger heart (adopted)

She would prefer a home with someone who knows about her breed and has some experience with handling her energy level

OrilliaMatters, in partnership with the SPCA Orillia Animal Centre, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hey there! My name is Nala and I am a six-year-old Mastiff/Boxer mix. I’m a big girl with an even bigger heart. I like to run and play and I am looking for a home that can keep up with me.

I can be a bit anxious when I’m left by myself but I eventually settle down. I love to go for walks and spend time with humans.

When I came to the Orillia Centre, I had my seven kids in tow. They all found their forever homes and now it’s my turn. I can be a bit shy when I first meet new people but I warm up very quickly.

I would prefer to go home with someone who knows about my breed and has a bit of experience with handling my energy level. I can be very vocal when I get excited and might need a bit of obedience training to get me settled in a routine.

Because I am an attention hog, I will need to be the only dog in the home. If you have a big fenced yard that would be ideal, that way I could run around and burn off some of my energy. I would love to meet you today and discuss adoption opportunities. I look forward to seeing you soon!
