Nina Square

Are you looking for a sweet, gentle natured girl?  That’s me!  I came from Puerto Rico where my owners didn’t want me anymore.  I was heartworm positive and As Good as Gold took care of my treatment, and now I am as good as new.  I have some issues with my hips, but with a few supplements I feel pretty good.

I am a petite girl at 46 pounds, which is a good weight for me.  I love to go for walks and have a keen sense of smell and love to follow scents.  I bet I would do great in a Nosework class.  I love to be outside when the weather is nice and will race around the yard.  I need to check out if any squirrels or chipmunks invaded my space since I was out the last time.

I am a little timid around new people and new situations and touches, so I think I would like older children and a calmer household in my forever home.  I get along great with my foster brother and sometimes try and get him to play.  I am definitely a follower and will watch his lead, so it would be great to have another dog in my new home.  I am not great with cats, I think they want me to chase them.

I will settle nicely in the house with a good bone.  I am learning lots of fun things in my foster home like sit, down, come and wait for food.  So, if you think I would be a great addition to your home, come and meet me and see for yourself.
