Nova D7455

3/10/22:  Nova now needs a new experienced foster home or forever home as the only dog.  She did great with adopter's 2 adult dogs, but now at 9 mos. old, she wants to the top alpha dog at home.  With her people, she is very sweet, smart, attentive, treat motivated, and loves snuggling. She needs to be the only dog in home.  No other dog or cats in home.  

From her foster/adopters: She is a big, active girl who loves walks, playing fetch, and splashing around in her kiddie pool. Nova was originally adopted by her foster family who have had her since she was 9 weeks old and absolutely adore her. Unfortunately, despite growing up with their other dogs and doing great with them as a small puppy, as she grew to be the largest member of the pack she became reactive toward other dogs. Her family has worked with trainers on this issue. She is a very smart girl and is improving in public settings. Unfortunately, Nova is just not well-suited for life in a multi-dog household. Nova is cuddly and lovable with her people. She is a highly trainable girl, as she is very food-motivated and a fast learner. She has been through puppy training and excelled in agility activities. She does well in a crate. Nova is a sweet girl who just needs some solo attention. She would do well with an experienced handler in a home with no other animals or small children. https://photos.app.goo.gl/ejWd5yRDRpNBCQCt8

Below is from Nova's original posting in 2021:

We took in Nova from a kind lady that rescued her mom from a field in Bakersfield. Mom was starved and very skinny. Most likely dumped. Soon mom gave birth to one puppy. The guardian took her mom to her vet and had x-rays done, and no other pups. Nova is very special. Lady that found her already has 2 dogs (one senior dog with medical needs) and busy work schedule so she asked us to take in Nova to ensure her puppy training, care and socials. Nova is doing great at her foster home. She has huge paws, double rare dew claws, fluffy and very sweet. Not sure what breed mix she is. Mom is 60 lbs and very sweet. She will need a home with yard, prefer another dog at home, and experience with large dogs. Nova will be ready in 2-3 weeks after all her vet care. More info. to come.

8/21/21 update:  It took her 4-5 days to start playing with foster home's dog. Will chase the ball and chewing. Does like to dig. Loves food and treats. Going out to yard for potty biz and few accidents inside.

**Note: Adoption in SF Bay Area Only**
