Meet Nina, the 11-lb. 6-year-old sweetie of tender heart and spunky spirit. It's hard to believe that not long ago, Nina found herself in a North Carolina animal shelter, battling a nasty bout of kennel cough, along with several skin ailments caused by her allergies to flea bites. Now in a New Rattitude foster home, she's been able to focus on making a wonderful recovery, and her personality has emerged, along with a beautiful new coat of fur! Nina is well-behaved and gets along great with her two canine foster brothers, as well as several dogs who've come over to visit. It may take her a while to warm up to new people, but with slow introductions at her pace, she has done well with all the humans she's met too. Nina is house trained and knows how to use the dog door. She may dribble some pee when her foster mom or dad arrives home from work, but she's working to overcome that tendency. Nina's favorite activity is walking or jogging with her foster mom, but she is almost as happy just napping in the kitchen on her dog bed, chewing on a bully stick, sitting on Foster Dad's lap to give him kisses, or chasing squirrels at full tilt in the backyard. More than anything, Nina is looking for someone to share in her joy and enthusiasm for living life and receiving love, and she's hoping that someone is YOU!
