Age: Approximately 9.5 years old
Weight: 13 pounds but working on gaining
Health: A myriad of ailments all of which are being treated now. Once she has gained weight, she will be spayed and have a dental cleaning
Demeanor: Sweet, affectionate (at times), quiet/mellow, shy/timid, submissive (at times), couch potato, social, loner (at times), curious
Likes: People (seems to prefer women), dogs, being held, snuggling, sitting in laps, going for car rides
Dislikes: Being picked up, quick hands, thunderstorms and mini-pigs (yes, mini-pigs. Foster family has one and she isn’t very fond. Perhaps she thinks it’s bacon?)
Manners: Crate trained, working on housebreaking
Fenced Yard Required: Yes
Tidbits: Nahi has had a hard life. It’s obvious she hasn’t been given much affection or basic care, but she is quickly learning that being in a home with all the comforts that go with it is out of this world! Her loving foster family is pulling out all the stops for this girl. Amid all her health issues, she’s a trooper! Fleas, ear infection, UTI, dry eyes, tummy trouble, dental disease and dry spots to name a few. Many of these problems have already been treated and are long gone. The rest are being addressed and they too shall be a thing in her past in due time.
At this stage, we think she’d thrive in a home with another dog. Children may be an issue because of her fear of sudden movements and quick hands. As time goes, we’ll learn more but hope someone will see how desperately she needs a kind, comforting home ready to spoil her for the rest of her life.
