Nina is a 7 year old cattle dog mix who is in foster care. She's located in the Manhattan Beach area. And weighs 50 lbs.
She is a wonderful dog but her foster, and primary caregiver, a 73 year old gentleman who is quite active. And caring for her the past few months, can no longer.
Prior to this time (6 years ago), Nina was taken in when it was discovered she'd been living in a cage at her veterinarian's office for a year.
Nina began getting daily walks and continued to live at the vet hospital. After 6 months, a home was found for Nina.
Recently, following the July 4th holiday, Nina's saviors found she'd been taken to the Carson Shelter.
Her owners had divorced and Nina was traumatized and began escaping from her new residence. They no longer wanted her.
The original person who got her out of that cage at the vets is now who is 83 years old, bailed her out again and after a few months found the foster home she is in now.
It was hoped this would be a forever home, but Nina's foster informed us recently that Nov 15th is the last day she can remain with them.
Nina will not be put back in a cage! Spent too much of her life this way.
She is a well-trained, wonderful dog! She loves life! She loves walks, hikes, car rides, or just being at home with her family. Nina loves children so she would be great with a family, or just one person. She is a young 7-8 year old -- Energetic & happy!
She will a best friend for someone.
