Facts about Nina

  • Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 30166443
(ID #A30166443) This is Nina.

Nina first came to the shelter as a stray. She was found roaming the streets trying to find food and a roof to cover her head. A kind soul found her and brought her to the shelter for her safety. She was adopted and returned several times because she doesn't do well around other dogs and cats. She would do best as the only pet in the house. She is active and needs an owner who will exercise her every day.

At least here at the shelter her basic needs are met, like food and water plus a roof over her head. However, she is longing to find her forever home. She has plenty of love to give. Do you have room in your heart and your home for her?? Come and have a meet-n-greet with her.

She is a young lady at heart. She has been checked out by a veterinarian. She received a set of preventative shots and has been wormed. She tested negative for heartworms. She has been spayed and microchipped.

She is being sponsored by Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue. That means they are providing you with a getting started Goodie Bag when you adopt her. The bag contains a collar, leash, ID tag, training DVD, CD with helpful articles, booklet with training information, toy, and treats. You will receive a Rebate Certificate that can be used towards payment of a training course with the trainer of your choice. Sheltered Paws will rebate back to you a dollar value up to but not to exceed $100.00.

You can contact her friend, Kathie at dog_picture@yahoo.com for more information on how she can become part of your family.

See you soon, NINA

About Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue was established in 1997 in order to save shelter dogs that need a foster placement.


We are a 501 (3) (c) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.


The reasons for fostering include:


  • Orphans too young for adoption
  • Nursing mothers
  • Mildly sick/injured dogs
  • Dogs that have been abused
  • Dogs that can not adjust to living in a shelter environment

Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue and a local shelter work together to place these dogs in temporary, loving foster homes. When you adopt from us, you are helping to save a shelter dog!!


Our Goal is to save shelter dogs in need and place them in good homes. To promote the placement of special need dogs with the help of adoption bags, grooming, socialization, and providing needed supplies. To pair the right dog with the right human companion(s), enriching everyone's lives.


Our Mission is to develop trust and love with a dog that needs to be reminded that many humans can and will take good, loving care of it for the rest of its lives. To then find loving homes for these previously abused, abandoned, sick, neglected and confused dogs. To give the dog a solid re-start with behavior, health, and trust. To spay/neuter our rescued dogs of age to stop the cycle of unwanted litters.

Our Adoption Process...

Some dogs are at the shelter and some are in a foster home. If the dog you like is at the shelter, please contact the person listed. She will fill you in on all the details.

If the dog you are interested in adopting is currently in a foster home, please EMAIL the individual "Foster Parent" noted in the description.



An Adoption Form Questionnaire will be emailed back to you. Upon completion, email the application back to shelteredpaws@yahoo.com


After review, we will be happy to set up an appointment for you to come and visit with the dog in the foster home.
If the adoption is appropriate, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract.

A nominal adoption fee is charged for each dog. This fee includes a vet check, all shots, any necessary medical work and medication, spay/neuter (if possible and appropriate). All of our work is volunteer. WE MAKE NO PROFIT ON THESE ADOPTIONS. This fee does NOT include those additional things we supply while the pet is in our care e.g. pet supplies, food, toys, grooming, training, etc. (plus a heck of a lot of hugs!)
