How she beat the odds, made a village of people fall in love with her and persevered through tough times. She is on the road to finding her purpose and making a difference in her new community as she figures this thing out called partnership. 𝐎𝐟𝐟 𝐭𝐨 𝐚 𝐛𝐚𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭Nala’s life didn’t start out too well as she was picked up as a stray dog by a Municipal Animal Control Officer in Northern New Jersey. Who was she? Where did she come from? Was she thrown away or did she escape from someone? She was brought to an animal shelter where her future wasn’t promising and time wasn’t on her side. She was confused as to why she no longer had freedom and was put in a place that was noisy and didn’t allow her to release her energy and this was so stressful for poor Nala. 𝐒𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐝 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐬Our Friends at Char-Wills German Shepherd Rescue got word that a beautiful young female dog needed a chance to potentially get adopted in hopes of finding a forever home. They quickly swooped in and rescued her from the shelter which her time there was limited. They quickly found out what a good girl Nala was but also discovered she had an enormous amount of energy and she never wanted to stop, it was always go go go. They knew that this didn’t make her a good candidate to be adopted by the average family. It most likely would not be a good placement. Again Nala waited for her forever home and was confused. Char Will knew exactly what she needed at this point. 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐚 𝐓𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐰 𝐀𝐰𝐚𝐲 𝐃𝐨𝐠 Throw Away Dogs Project is a nonprofit that gives high energy misunderstood dogs a new purpose in life and trains them for Police work. These dogs are donated at no cost to Police Departments around the country. The Throw Away Dogs Team received a call from Diane at Char Will and was informed that they might have a good candidate for our program. Founders, Carol Skaziak and Jason Walters traveled to New Ringgold PA to see just what Diane was talking about. Not every dog can do this job or to be honest can even pass the evaluation to enter our program. Did she have what it takes? Our first encounter with Nala was very pleasant, she was friendly, full of bottled up energy, and extremely independent. She didn’t know how to play. We liked what we saw and she evaluated extremely well but we knew it was going to take some time and patience to teach her “how to just be a dog”. We were ready to take on the task and try our hardest to get her trained so we could donate her to a Police Department in need and give her a new purpose in life! 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗼𝗻𝗴 𝗷𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗻𝗲𝘆 𝗯𝗲𝗴𝗶𝗻𝘀The Throw Away Dogs Founders started immediately putting a plan in place so Nala could start the journey to her new life. After several weeks of finalizing plans for transporting, training, and approving a Police Department application it was finally go time.! 𝐈𝐭 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐬 𝐚 𝐕𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐚𝐠𝐞The day was finally here, Jason and Carol headed back to New Ringgold PA to pick up Nala from Char Will Rescue. Everyone was filled with emotion and excitement that sweet Nala was ready for the next step. Next stop….. Berlin Maryland We introduced our newest candidate to our Teammates, JC Richardson and Chris Staples of Delmarva K9 LLC. We knew that Nala would be in great hands as they were dedicated to our mission and have over 25 years experience in Police K9 Training. We all anxiously awaited on pins and needles to see what the next few weeks of training would bring upon us. Does she really have what it takes? Can she do the job? Is she understanding the game? What happens if she doesn’t? The outcome was that Nala was a natural and was a quick learner! Her training continued smoothly and JC and Chris were happy to announce that she was a pleasure to train and loved her temperament. She was the whole package rolled up all in one! “The Department is going to love her” said JC. We are proud to say Nala is now trained and is ready to be donated as a Narcotic Detection K9! We are so blessed to have such talented Trainers who have the same passion as us! 𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐊𝟗 𝐠𝐨𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐨 …..After going through many Police Department applications and interviews the Board has agreed to grant Nala to:𝐏𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐛𝐥𝐮𝐟𝐟 𝐏𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐃𝐞𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐥𝐨𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐢𝐧 𝐏𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐛𝐥𝐮𝐟𝐟 𝐍𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐡 𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐚.This small 6 man Department is located right out side Pinehurst NC about 40 minutes from Fayetteville NC. The county has a main highway corridor that is a known drug corridor and having a K9 would benefit the surrounding citizens that live in that area. The Department was approved to start up a K9 Program and we are happy to announce that Throw Away Dogs Project will donate K9 Nala to their Department. The donation of Nala has saved the Department and tax payers $13,000 to start up this K9 Unit. We are beyond excited for this placement! Nala gets a new purpose in life by helping make a safer environment for the citizens of Pinebluff to reside and the Town was able to save a large amount of money in starting up their K9 Unit. WIN-WIN! Nala was matched up with a handler that we know will make the perfect Partner. He is dedicated, determined, and devoted to Nala. They immediately bonded and Nala finally found her person!𝐅𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐩𝐬This amazing Team now has to go to Handler school to become certified as a Team before they hit the streets. Throw Away Dogs is so excited that Pinebluff’s Chief has chosen K2 Solutions, Inc. as their Handler School of choice. K2 offers a course designed to prepare the Canine and Handler Team to perform an array of screening detection services. They certify Teams using techniques and protocols that meet the highest standards in the industry. This will be Throw Away Dogs Project second dog going through K2’s Handler course and we are thrilled to have them be a part of something so important to our mission. K9 Nala new purpose in life!
