I was cruising the adoptable list at PAWS Atlanta and came across this sweet fur kid. When I read her story my heart just broke. I can't believe people would be so cruel to an animal who's only goal in life is to make you happy. Please help Nilah find a home!!

Here is her story:

Nilah is one of the most mellow and kind-hearted dogs you will ever come across, but she has been through a lot in her young life.  She was adopted as a puppy, with her sister, from PAWS Atlanta.  6 years later she showed up, with her sister, at a local animal control.  Her owners were nowhere to be found, but her microchip showed that she had come from PAWS.  We drove out to get them both right away, and we were horrified by what we saw.  They were both emaciated and had possible burns on their paws.  Nilah would scream if anyone moved too quickly around her.  She has really come a long way since then and meets all sorts of strangers every day.  She loves people, being brushed, taking short walks, toys, and treats.  She grows more trusting every day and, no matter how scared she is in any given situation, she has never shown aggression.  She does not treat people the way she herself was treated.  She has been at PAWS Atlanta for a year now, and she is more than ready to get into a good home with people who will be gentle with her and give her the love she deserves.
