The Dog Story Behind The Dress: NALA

We have mentioned before that all our dresses are named after dogs that we rescued from Romania. We would like to share some of their stories with you...



 Nala the speherd mix was caught on the streets at the age of two. This beautiful girl with an indescribably calm and majestic aura lived in the public shelter of Bucov for nearly three years! Every day there she had to fight hunger and thirst. Not all dogs survive the cold winters of Romania, but Nala persevered.

This strong girl was spotted at BODENLANG founder Jenny's first trip to the shelter, and she immediately decided to take Nala with her. 

Jenny fostered Nala for a few weeks, and this gorgeous girl could not believe her luck. She was the most grateful dog, when she got her very first own pillow, she slept for almost 4 days without as much as moving! To see her enjoy this new life was a wonderful and rewarding experience.

It didn't take long to find Nala a forever home, where she lives a happy dog's life ever since.

There are plenty of more stories to tell… If you would like to help, send us an email and follow us on Instagram @bodenlang and  @bodenlang.animals . We are always looking for new homes and volunteers who would like to join us on our trips to Romania. Together with your help, we can make the living conditions of the dogs a little bit better, make sure that they get food, medical help and the chance of a loving home.
