Sweet Nena is a very friendly pet - We have her since she was about 3 months old; and always shown affection, so loving, not a barker, doesn't pull on the leash; very obedient.

I know lots of people are scared to adopt such strong dog but we have raised her to be the best she can be as an adorable companion; laid back 4 leg girl!! eager to please you and to be your best buddy:)

She thinks she is a lap dog and will sit on your foot:) Confident and keenly aware of her surroundings, she is a great family and watchdog in that they may alert you to the presence of strangers, but that's primarily because she is eager to greet her guests.

Nena is about 12 months old and she is full grown and weights about 65 lbs.

She is currently living on day to day basis at her foster home with other small dogs and a large pit bull and a male German Shepherd - The foster home also has cats and kittens.'

Like every dog; she will need continuous socialization — exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences —
Nena has been rescued since she was 4 months old; therefore, we have seen her grown and has never showed to be aggressive - she will need exercise; a good bone to chew on and lots of love:)

Contact her rescuer at 619-576-0747 via phone or texting for faster response or you can email her at
Give Nena a chance - you can foster to adopt her as well - ask us about this program!!
