My story

We are not a shelter, we are trying to help this owner find a good, loving home. We've not met or evaluated this dog. PLEASE Don't just "ask about", if you don't have specific questions and you want to meet this dog please understand: NO MEETINGS OR ADOPTIONS WILL HAPPEN WITHOUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION.

This what was written to us:

Why does Nova need a new home?

Due 
to a long battle with cancer, Nova’s owner is starting to not have 
enough energy to give Nova what she needs. We want to see her go to a home 
where she gets the love, playtime, affection, and attention she deserves.

Location?
Sandusky, Ohio

Nova 
is 6 years old and has been in our family since she was a puppy. She is the 
ultimate lover and is always by your side with a happy, goofy smile. She loves 
her humans and will cuddle as close as you will let her get. She is friendly 
toward other dogs and really enjoys dog parks and play dates at the 
board-and-play. Unfortunately, she has not had many walks on leash lately due 
to her mom’s health, but used to be very well behaved and accustomed to her 
gentle leader. (I do not know how she would do currently, but I think it would 
be a quick training process to get her back up to speed!) Nova loves to run 
and play fetch, but is intuitive enough to stay by your side and sleep if 
you’re feeling sick. Nova is crate trained and will occasionally even go in to 
her “house” willingly for naps. 

In 
her life she has not had much experience with cats, and will bark at them from 
a distance. When actually encountered though, she will be submissive and has 
never “gone at” another animal. Nova does not like the noises or energy of 
small children, and would be best in an adult or 12+ year old 
home.

Nova 
has never bitten anyone or any animal. She does have a tendency to jump up 
when greeting new people, but it is always with excitement. She will listen to 
“down” and “sit” as well as other commands that I’m happy to go over. 

Nova 
is up to date on rabies and other vaccines and has been spayed. Occasionally 
she will leak a little urine in her sleep and has medication, Proin, that 
controls it. (Typically she will need to take the medication for one week a 
month, which will tighten the muscles for the whole 
month.)

PLEASE Don't just start an inquiry, if you have no questions and you want to meet this dog please note: NO MEETINGS OR ADOPTIONS WILL HAPPEN WITHOUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION.

More about this rescue

Dogs Hope.com was started by Deb and Jan in 2000 We both live in Lake County about 30 miles East of Cleveland, Ohio. We are not a shelter or facility where the dogs are available for viewing or surrendering. . . we are two individuals with a love for the animals. We are two ladies who try to do everything within our limited powers to help any needy pet. We are not a 501c3 Charitable Organization. Maybe some day we will be a "real" charity, able to accept your donations giving you the ability to deduct them from your taxes. But for today, we can only say "thank you" when you donate and promise that every donation has gone to a spay/neuter, vaccinations, health check-up, heartworm check, heartworm treatment, worming meds, antibiotics for sick pets and all needed veterinary care for the animals that come through our rescue. Deb and I pay for all the above needed care out of our own pockets. Remember we're not a shelter. When we have space in our homes we foster in our homes. . . when we don't have space in our own homes for a foster, we depend on angels that have opened up their homes to help us foster, if there are not fosters available you will be asked to keep your dog until a home can be found. (we really need foster homes) A little about us: Deb has been helping the strays, owner surrenders and local pounds try to find good homes for needy dogs since 1977. She has always taken pro-active steps in our local area even as a teenager, she has fostered and placed numerous death row dogs throughout the years from local shelters. Deb has a real soft spot in her heart for the German Shepherd and that is how we came to be co-rescuers and friends. I (Jan) have always loved the German Shepherd Dog, I'd grown up with German Shepherds, raised my son with German Shepherds and now find myself a pro-active rescuer with Debbie. How we work. . . If you would like to adopt a dog, you MUST fill out the Adoption Application in full. If you would like to surrender a dog and have it "featured" on our website and in Petfinder.com, click Placing My Dog for hints on what we need from you. Please be patient with us, if you haven't heard back from us in a couple of days with some kind note, then chances are we haven't seen your application or received your email. Do try again. . . don't give up on us. Thank you for visiting our site, Jan & Deb
