SPECIAL COVID NOTICE: We realize that many of you are home from work right now and adopting a dog seems like a great idea. Which, it may be! Or may not. Please think about what your life will be like once things go back to “normal.” Will you have enough time each day to dedicate to a dog, based on the dog’s individual needs? If you are looking for a dog to socialize with kids, other dogs, etc., please do not submit an adoption application, as we do not recommend that for any dog. Nor do we recommend dog parks or dog daycare. Visit the resources section of our website for more info on those topics.
Please note that none of our foster homes have children, so we have no idea how any of our dogs would do living in a home with kids and/or if they would enjoy it. None of our foster homes have cats either, so if you have a cat and are looking to adopt a dog, we can send you info for slow introductions which will require separating a dog from your cat for some time.
As for Nina:
Nina is a very sweet, happy girl who greets new people with excitement and exuberance. The longer she has been with us, the more she has settled in and has really become quite the well-behaved, easy-going dog! Especially for as young as she is (she’s about 1.5 – 2 years, estimated). Nina loves to learn and picks up on commands quickly and will need an adopter to help her continue to learn how to be the best dog she can be. Everyone who meets her can’t get over how stunning she is!
Nina does seem to have general anxiety about new places and new situations so would do best in a quiet home. She goes for walks sometimes, but does best when they are in quiet, peaceful areas and not too long or frequent. Nina has really come a long way since joining our rescue and has proven that she can also relax and lounge around. In fact, Nina is happiest doing just that – hanging out with her family at home. She isn’t the kind of dog who is up for big adventures and really doesn’t require much exercise in terms of long walks or lots of outdoor time. Instead, she is happy to hang around the house with you.
Her foster parents have been working from home during the pandemic and Nina is content to nap in her dog bed during the day while they work. She is also content chewing her bones to entertain herself and in the evening, is also happy to have a snuggle session with you.
Please note that the first step in our process is the adoption application found on our website www.midatlanticbullybuddies.org. Nina is housebroken, crate trained, spayed, microchipped and vaccinated.
