As Karen walked down the sidewalk in her neighborhood, she couldn’t help but notice that someone was following her.
A tense German shepherd had been following closely behind, showing interest but keeping a respectful distance.
Karen, who requested that her last name not be used, told The Dodo, “I wasn’t afraid of her following.” I tried to approach her at first, but she was too frightened. I waited while sitting on the curb.
Because of the dog’s breed, Karen was concerned that she might have been abandoned, and she connected with her right away. She was unable to abandon her.
She discovered that despite numerous sightings of the stray pup in the region, no one had been able to win her trust. Security, neighbors, and the Humane Society all made attempts to apprehend her, Karen remarked.
The wary dog seemed to feel more secure around Karen for some reason. The puppy eventually agreed to let Karen take her home after much persistence and bribery.
Karen added, “I was the first one she let close enough.” I find it extremely amazing how these things take place.
The pairing seemed like fate. Karen was on the fence about acquiring a new dog after losing her cherished golden retriever, Lola, in 2019. She had no idea her new best buddy would literally stroll into her life. Quickly falling in love, she gave the dog the name Nala.
Karen remarked, “Nala followed me and dispelled whatever worries I had about finally adopting a dog. Sometimes you believe you’re not prepared for a scenario, but fate intervenes and says, “Uh, yeah, you are.”
Karen recorded a video to share her experience, and it quickly gained popularity online. Check it out here:
“I’m astonished that my reel affected so many people, but I’m also thrilled that they care about rescue! Karen remarked.
Karen believed she had told the full story, but Nala had one more surprise up her sleeve.
Karen became concerned when Nala began to exhibit symptoms of nausea and bloating. She visited the veterinarian for advice.
It was soon evident that Nala was actually pregnant and not ill.
Nala gave birth to eight healthy puppies in a matter of days.
Nala is the ideal mother!
Karen remarked. “I’m still blown away with joy and huge shock! ”
The veterinarian estimated that Karen discovered Nala to be four weeks along, however, Nala wasn’t obviously pregnant because she hadn’t been eating much. The dilemma wasn’t obvious until Karen began giving Nala regular meals.
According to Karen, “These moments that happen can lead you to places you never anticipated.”
When Karen and Nala happened to cross paths that day while out for a walk, she could never have imagined the strange path Nala would take her down. Nevertheless, Karen wouldn’t exchange her experience—or her new dog—for anything.
All I can do right now, Karen replied, “is make sure she’s safe and happy forever.” She also saved me, but I saved her first.
