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 approx. a year and a half old and is still very much a puppy. She is a very sweet, happy girl who greets new people with excitement and exuberance – sometimes a bit too much in the forms of jumping. Unfortunately Nina has spent much of her life in a shelter, hence the puppy-ness she still has in a big, strong dog’s body. 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. Cautious at times and exuberant at other times; Nina is very much still a puppy. A sweet, GORGEOUS puppy. Everyone who meets her can’t get over at 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 with a fenced yard. She goes for walks sometimes, but does best when they are in quiet, peaceful areas and not too long or frequent. At home, Nina needs close supervision, as she will get herself into trouble when she is feeling anxious (i.e. chewing things she should not).
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.
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.
