Nina is a black spayed female who is one year old and weighs 49 pounds. She is good with dogs, unknown with cats and approved for ages ten and up. She is current on vaccines and heartworm negative. This petite girl was stray to the shelter but somewhere along the way she learned excellent house manners. Little Nina needs a single family detached home in the suburbs or a rural area with a physically fenced yard so she can play and run.
Updates from Nina's foster family - Feb 3, 2017: Nina will thrive in a home where she can wear the crown or as a single dog. But with those big brown puppy dog eyes, its next to impossible to turn down any requests she has. She's a young playful pup who can hold her own wrestling with her 90 lb foster brother, but she also entertains herself with toys or by chewing on bones. She'll ask you to play tog o' war and roll over for belly rubs too. After a playful romp, she'll curl up for a well deserved siesta. Nina takes a while to warm up to strangers and will be happiest as a homebody. She has wonderful house manners and doesn't need to be crated.
Jan 27, 2017: Nina is a 1 year old, dainty little princess who loves to be within a paw's reach of her people. She has lovely house manners and kindly asks to go out with a paw on your knee. She knows her commands and will come, sit, lay down just for the praise, no treats needed! Nina is bit skittish in new places and takes a second to warm up to strangers but would love to make your house her home. When she's not snuggled into a petite little ball of fur she holds her own playing with her brute of a foster brother - then goes right back to snuggling and asking for belly rubs.
Jan 23, 2017: Nina is a happy, smart, high energy, and gentle girl. She is affectionate, but does not lick. She likes to cuddle, sleep beside you in bed, and likes kisses on her head. She is housetrained, and she will let you know she needs to go out by putting her paw/leg on you and pulling, as if to say: Lets go! She has not been crated, she has had the run of the house with my 3 dogs. She is a typical high energy, young dog. She has become wrestling playmates with my Chi/JRT boy, and Nina does not hurt him, she rolls over and lets him be the big guy. After a 15-20 minute wrestling session or some fetch time outside, or some tug-o-war while watching TV, she is then content to lay down. She likes to be wherever you are - in the floor next to a recliner, in the kitchen floor while cooking, or relaxing beside you in bed. She prefers squeaky toys over tennis balls. She did fine walking on the leash. Nina knows how to sit. She needs room to romp and play and run. She can be shy in new situations and when meeting new people, but she warms up fast.
