Now, if you're looking at this little doggie and thinking she doesn't look much like an Anatolian Shepherd Dog I would have to say you're correct.   An Anatolian Shepherd Dog, she is not.
What breed she is, I really don't know.

All I know is she ended up in a kill shelter awhile back and she was a very sick and pitiful looking little girl.
A shelter volunteer sent us a picture of her, curled up in a corner, looking like she was knocking on death's door.  Which she probably was.  We were told she was 2 to 3 months old and they thought she was an Anatolian mix.  We all agreed we weren't sure if she was really Anatolian or not but this volunteer said she would take her in and foster her if we would  help her find a home.
We said okay!

Fast forward to today......Nyla is no longer sick!  Yay!  But she is not 2 or 3 months old (more like 9 months) and she is most definitely not an Anatolian or mix.  She's about 18 inches tall and weighs 30 pounds.
And the shelter volunteer that begged us to save her, who promised to foster her?  She backed out and said she's too small, she no longer wants to foster her. =(


So the good news is that Nyla is healthy and ready for a loving family.  The bad news is we no longer have a foster for her.

We honestly have no idea what breed mix she might be.  If you have a guess, feel free to email us!
Like I said, she's about 30 pounds and 18 inches tall.  She is appx 9 months old so when she is full grown she will not be a very large dog.

She is housebroken, crate trained, friendly with people, can get along with other dogs.....she is still very much a puppy and needs to learn some manners but over all she will make a nice little companion dog.  Did you notice what a pretty smile she has?

Please help us spread the word for Miss Nyla to find a foster or adoptive home.  She is current on shots and will be spayed next week.
