Facts about Nina

  • Breed: Australian Cattle Dog
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)

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.

About Central Coast Herding Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Central Coast Border Collie and Herding Dog Rescue is a Rescue Alliance partner, a federally recognized 501(c)3 non profit organization dedicated to finding great dogs great homes. County of San Luis Obispo Animal Service Operating Permit #C2649

Central Coast Border Collie Rescue (CCBCRescue) is dedicated to helping find homes for Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, Australian Cattle Dogs/Queensland Heelers and other herding breeds and mixes. This site lists dogs in shelters as well as dogs in homes and foster care, and is intended to help adopters seeking good dogs, and dogs seeking loving homes. Why we do it: Herding dogs are not for every one. Too many adopters get these dogs as status symbols only to find out, their life style doesn't meet these high energy dogs needs. As a result, these wonderful misunderstood dogs wind up in shelters. We understand what drives these dogs, we can place them appropriately. Our mission is to educate people and save dogs. We do it because we love these dogs, with a little effort, can give them a good new life. Euthanasia is not the solution to out animal overpopulation issue. Education is.
