Nina and the resident dog in her current foster home aren’t getting along well, so we’d like to find a new foster home for Nina as soon as we can! Nina is a 2 year old pit bull mix who was abandoned by her owners at the shelter, adopted, and returned again before ending up on the euthanasia list. She was under-socialized, her vision was impaired and someone had damaged her neck with a chain. She doesn’t let any of these issues hold her back though, and is ready to take on life head on! Despite the rough road she’s traveled so far, you couldn’t find a sweeter dog. She desperately craves companionship and a human to call her own. She’s been left so many times in the past that she has some separation anxiety, but who could blame her? She cries for her humans, worried she’s been left again. Nina needs work and a patient, loving forever home but she will be absolutely worth it! Nina is good with cats and children. She wants a canine companion but she doesn’t quite understand how to interact with other dogs; she will need an only dog home or a home with a patient dog and owners willing to give them plenty of supervised time to adjust. Once Nina feels secure in her home, her anxiety is easy to manage (Kongs, chew toys, lavender oil etc.). She completed a board and train program at sol.Dog, knows her basic commands, and is house trained. Nina is very active and would love a family who can keep up with her energy and enthusiasm for life. She will be your best jogging partner, hiking companion, and tug-of-war opponent ever!
