'So the beautiful Nala has been with us for 4 months now and to think it all started with a picture from Facebook! I instantly fell in love with Nala's picture and couldn't stop looking at her to which my partner gave in. We were considering rescuing but never realised you could rescue from abroad - WAHF made the process so simple and worked alongside Nala's rescuer to get her ready to fly to the UK so simple. We were also sent regular updates and photos until Nala was old enough to fly.
Before we knew it, it was arrival day. Unfortunately Nala's flight was delayed which meant she had been travelling for many hours. On arrival she was very nervous and she didn't want to leave her crate. Once in the car and snuggled in a blanket she soon settled for the journey home.
When we arrived home Nala went straight round the house having a good sniff of everything possible. As soon as she became unsure of anything she disappeared under the dining table - her safe place - but she would soon venture back out. I was lucky enough to have 2 weeks off work when Nala arrived which I strongly believe was best for her. Within a couple of days Nala was no longer hiding and was taking to house training ever so quickly other than when it was raining but hey, coming from sunny Cyprus who could blame her!
The only thing Nala wasn't so keen on at first was her crate even with cosy blankets toys and treats she would cry for a while when first left alone and as soon as she heard us pull up on the drive but now when she knows it's work time she takes herself there!
Nala is now the most friendly, confident, crazy puppy. She turns heads wherever we go and has even won rosettes at local dog shows. Nala has taken to our active lifestyle perfectly and although she has only been with us 4 months I can't imagine life without her. She is my partner in crime and has a filled an emptiness I didn't know I had. We thank Wild at Heart Foundation from the bottom of our hearts.'
