Look at those legs!  Those ears!  Long and lean and full of energy – and tons of cold nose kisses!

This graceful lady is Nina.  She and her sisters were found in an abandoned trailed in Texas, surrounded by rotting food, broken furniture, filth and garbage.  Just as bad as the images we have all seen on that awful TV show.  For Nina, this wasn’t just on the screen – she lived it.  From out of that nightmare emerged this beautiful dream of a dog.

Nina is 2 years old with unique brown-on-brown markings.  Her colors bleed together like hot fudge melting on coffee ice cream.  Deep dark eyes, so desperately wanting to trust, love, and be loved.  Nina is high-energy, she flips into “go mode” at the drop of a hat.  She plays hard – sometimes too hard for her sisters and the other foster dogs in her home.  She is now learning to socialize and be more gentle.  When she should have been getting those life lessons, she was focused on survival.  She is a work in progress.  She is like that friend who always has one extra drink and then wants to sing karaoke (but has a voice that sets your teeth on edge) and who wants to dance in the center of the dance floor (but has two left feet) and finally ends up loudly announcing to the entire place how much she loves you, as she is draped over your shoulders.  Her heart is big, she loves out loud, and the way she expresses herself is just a little bit over the top.  Pushy, sometimes even abrasive…but you love her anyway.

Nina can be a little timid with new people.  She will approach for pets, and then retreat until she is more confident.  Once she has decided to trust, then she is all over you like syrup on pancakes!  Nina loves to play, with soft squeaky toys and the other dogs in her home.  She runs like the wind in her fenced in yard, slamming into her sisters on those skidding turns, racing free with the sun on her face and the wind in her ears.  Because of her speed, we need a fenced in yard for Nina in her forever home.  Invisible fencing cannot be considered.


Nina is using potty pads during the day because her foster mom works.  She also goes potty outside without issue.  Sometimes she wants to stay out…you may have to bribe her with a treat to get her back in if the weather is fine and she is having fun.  Please be patient as she learns the routine in her new home – there may be accidents as she figures things out.  We are requiring a fully fenced yard for Nina (no electric/invisible fences)


Nina stands guard in her foster home and takes that role seriously.  She will alert you when someone is coming close to her home, then wait for cues from you to determine if all is safe with this new person.  She has a big bark in her little body but isn’t a chatty girl.  She barks for a reason and once she feels she has been properly heard, she will be done.  Nina is very excited when her people come home.  Her joy will bring a smile to your face – and that is the best way to wrap up any day

Nina is spayed, up to date with vaccines, microchipped, flea/worm treated and tested neg. for heartworm.  Her adoption fee is $400
