Cranky Dog Compared to Ouiser Boudreaux Looking for a Home With Fellow Loner

“She really is the dog equivalent of an old lady sitting on a porch in a rocking chair who has no tolerance for visitors.”

Introducing Nala, the Ouiser Boudreaux of dogs.

According to Big Fluffy Dog Rescue in Nashville, Tennessee, this five-year-old "stumpy little corgi/sheltie mix" is sweet, devoted, obedient, and eager to please. And boy is she cute.

There's just one problem: Nala loves her home so much she has zero interest in sharing it. Not with new people. Not with dogs. And certainly not with cats.

"She really is the dog equivalent of an old lady sitting on a porch in a rocking chair who has no tolerance for visitors," Jean Harrison, who founded Big Fluffy Dog Rescue, told McClatchy News.

So, this adoptable pup is looking for what the rescue is calling, "a unicorn of a home."

"Nala is a content, lovely homebody who needs a social hermit who wants a dog and not a lot else. There's no training to fix a general dislike of sharing," Big Fluffy Dog Rescue wrote on Facebook alongside a smiling photo of Nala. "She wants what she wants and what she wants is a quiet, lazy home with people who don't have a lot of people coming in and out and with no other animals."

"She's had some interest because she is ridiculously cute," Harrison noted. "(But) I am holding the line firmly on finding her the right home as I don't want to set her up to fail."

Nala arrived in the U.S. in November 2019 from Kuwait. Harrison speculates that she did not have a fabulous existence before she was rescued.

WATCH: Your Dog Could Take or Leave Your Face. Sorry.

While there are not a lot of homes out there looking for grumpy, visitor-averse dogs, the rescue is hopeful that Nala's perfect home is out there.

"We are hoping that her soul mate is out there looking for a dog who will be an absolutely perfect companion but who is on the hermit side of life," the now-viral Facebook post concludes. "Social butterflies absolutely should pass, but if your idea of a big night is Golden Girls reruns and snacks, this is your girl."

You do you, Nala!
