Dog Rescue Stories: Nala and Her Siblings Were Found Freezing in a Barn

Nala has a very unique story. When she was found, she was just eight weeks old and freezing to death in a barn with all her siblings. Somehow the litter made their way to Wayside Waifs in Kansas City, MO.

Originally, Nala belonged to my irresponsible brother and girlfriend, but she lived with me because they didn’t have a place they could actually keep her. After two blissful months, my brother took her out of my home due to an argument we had gotten in. They brought Nala to stay at a friend’s house. After nine long weeks, I was finally able to convince my brother to let me pick Nala up for a weekend visit at my house.

When I  arrived to pick my baby up, she was skinny and a different dog. Nala recognized me instantly. I almost cried while petting her. Right then and there I knew she wasn’t going back. I got her home and I found out they had been feeding her food she was allergic to the entire time. Her bowel movements were not normal, and when she did happen to use the restroom it was bad. It also seemed as if she had been beaten by a man because she is now terrified of men she doesn’t know.

I alerted my brother to what was going on and he told me that she could continue to stay with me. I knew I didn’t have much time with because my brother would be moving an hour away to college. About a month before she was supposed to leave with my brother, I adopted a puppy! My brother’s girlfriend was extremely jealous and wanted a new puppy, too. So, they got a puppy and said I could keep Nala. It worked out for everyone, but it is sad they abandoned her. I will always love and care for Nala…she will never be alone again.
