Nina's Story

Say hello to Nina!  Nina is a gorgeous girl who is looking for an active household who enjoys being out and about and loves to explore just as much as she does!  She arrived here from one of our rural transfer partners and is eager to charm the socks off of the perfect family for her! Nina is an extremely playful and happy-go-lucky pup who has never had the chance to be a part of a family of her very own.  She dreams of the day her human hero will come along and show her exactly what it’s like to be loved and cherished unconditionally!  Nina is still a young girl who is learning something new every day.  She gets very excited when going for walks and will need a strong and confident handler who will be able to show her how to walk like a lady on a leash.  She also is still figuring out how to mind her manners, and could use some help in this area!  She hopes to find a family who will commit to her training and help her to grow into a well-rounded and super smart girl! Nina has already mastered a few commands such as sit, lay, and rollover! She hopes she can show you just how amazing she is in the future! She is ready to become an obedience superstar and promises to follow your lead, just as long as you have some stinky treats on hand to offer her!

Nina is on the hunt for an active home without young children. Nina recently spent some time in a foster home where we learned that she absolutely loves going for rides in the car as the co-pilot!  Her foster describes her as an affectionate and playful girl who would be best suited for a family who can spend some time throwing around a tennis ball for her!  Nina does tend to get the zoomies from time to time, so she would enjoy having a backyard in her new home. If there’s no backyard, then she would prefer to go for super long walks or runs!  She would make the perfect running buddy and is eager to wake up in the morning to accompany you on your morning jog!  Her foster also told us that Nina is fully housebroken and always willing to work for food! She also enjoys receiving attention from all of her human friends and is a super sweet pup who just wants to be loved.  If Nina could speak, she would tell you that her all-time favorite thing to play with are Kong toys!  They certainly keep her busy!  She also loves any chew toy she can get her adorable paws on!  With the most adorably sweet face we’ve ever seen and a doggy smile that could brighten anyone’s day, Nina is a true gem!  If you dream of giving a deserving dog a forever home just as much as she dreams of having one, then come and visit with beautiful Nina today!
