Hello! My name is Nino!

  • Nino
  • Mixed breed
  • 4 years
  • Female

Weight (approx): 71 lbs

Energy: Medium

Children: Older children (12+)

Dogs: Selective

Cats: Unknown

Health Notes: Nino was adopted out by hart in 2017. Her human family experienced a change and could no longer provide for Nino, so she came back to hart for some love and attention until she finds her true furever family. Nino came back into care carrying a little extra weight, but in overall good condition.  Since being back with hart her standard antiparasitics, vaccinations (DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies) have been brought up to date. Nino was microchipped and spayed previously with hart. 

Behavior Notes: Nino is a medium energy dog, who has shown wonderful improvements since moving into her foster home. Due to limited human contact in the past, she was initially very standoffish but she has since opened up and her personality is starting to shine! Nino loves walks, car rides, squeaky toys and all food! She enjoys having guests over, often laying beside them and trying to engage them in a game of tug of war. She is tolerant of strangers, but like most dogs, she is not a fan of people getting in her face. Because of this, it is always best that Nino initiate interactions with new people. She also currently struggles with getting her nails trimmed and prodding vet visits. She is tolerant of her muzzle and it should be worn on such visits to avoid incident. While she currently doesn't live with another dog, past behaviour indicates she may be able to with proper introductions. She has never been around cats or children so we are not sure how she will be but young children are not advised. We do recommend children 15+ who are dog savvy, and can give Nino space when she needs it. Crate training is a work in progress, but she is house trained and has shown no destructive behaviors when left alone. Nino is a very intelligent, well-behaved girl who is looking for a calm but active family that can give her a furever home.
