Delta Airlines Loses Another Dog. Help Find “Nala”

Military Family’s Dog Lost Thousands of Miles From Home

A woman from San Diego is on a mission to find her missing dog … which is believed to be thousands of miles from home and a continent away from where she should be.

Nala boarded a Delta flight in San Diego, headed for a new home in Germany with her owners.

The German shepherd mix somehow “vanished” from her locked crate during a layover in Atlanta last week.

“It has 2-inch bolts all around it, a metal cage on the front, they twist-tied it,” Alisa Miller said on Thursday. “A dog cannot break out of that. But they told me they swapped her into one of their kennels, and I don’t know what that looks like because they haven’t showed me yet.”

Now Miller is searching in an unfamiliar city, hoping for any sign of her beloved pooch. She said Delta managers were slow to react but finally sent her someone to help search and post fliers. The airline is offering a $1,000 reward, but Miller believes it may be too late.

”I don’t know how … she’s never ran away before,” Miller said. “I don’t know where she would go. I don’t know where to look. I don’t know this area. I don’t even know if she’s alive. I’m praying that I find her. I know that dogs show up weeks and months later, and I’m praying that I find her.”

The family is moving to Germany due to Miller’s husband’s army assignment, they contacted some movers in nyc to carry their stuff internationally.

Their second dog made it to Germany safely.

Miller started a Facebook page called Help Find Nala to try to reach people outside of Atlanta. She made this plea to the public: “If you see my dog — any dog — please call the shelter. Have them pick her up right away — it’s freezing cold here.”

Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott told NBCSanDiego that “we are devastated by this. A number of our agents have animals of their own and feel terrible that it happened. They’re working very hard to try and track the animal.”

The airline has also offered to help the family get another pet if Nala is not found.

    The poor dog Nala had little chance of survival when flying Delta Airlines. I have taken my 13 yr old Lab with us on several Delta flights. Every time we flew, I had to beg, insist, and become nearly irate with several Delta employees before anybody would give her water. I put bowls on her cage, took bottled water (which they refused to accept) for her, and wrote notes on her paperwork. Sometimes I was told they could not give her water, other times they said they were too busy. I always watched from the terminal window during layovers and/or delays until I was sure she was on board. Even when flights were delayed as much as 3+ hours they would not cooperate. Usually when I was at my wits end, some kind heart would have mercy and see that she was given water. I paid much more for her to fly in cargo than for my ticket, yet your employees did not want to take 5 minutes to give her a drink. Poor Nala, no doubt, was starving, had no water and was not taken out to do her business., It’s no wonder she frantically escaped from her cage!!!!!! I cannot imagine the horror she felt. Shame on you Delta Airlines!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! $1000 is nothing.

    Contact the freight carriers in the area – – they know every dog on every street. Nala will be more likely to hear your calls at 1/2 am when the area near the airport is quieter. There’s alot of wooded areas after you head towards camp creek – i doubt she got on the interstate but have her owner walk around alot in several areas 1/2 mile apart dog can smell their owners foot prints up to a mile . fyi
    god blessings i will look for her when i get down to fulton industrial bvld. there are tons of truckers down there and a racetrac you can post posters and ask those restrauants – –

    $1,000.00 for a pet is pitiful – I am surprised they made such a brush off offer. They have video cameras’ and security cameras and they don’t know where the dog is? I read a guy’s french bulldog arrived dead; and recently it’s a major concern so many things are happening to animals at these airports?
    What kind of employee would intentionally allow a paid parcel to be put into jeopardy? Any news on Nala today?
