Say Hi to Nina! This beautiful girl is in need of a safe, loving, forever home where she is the ONLY pet. She will adore all humans and make you feel loved like you’ve never felt before.
Nina’s story began in Detroit where we can only assume things were not the greatest for her; she has the scars to prove it. The stars must have been aligned for Nina the day she found her way into the heart of a young college student who rescued her from the shelter. The shelter did tell her adopter that Nina was very anxious around other dogs, and they did need to sedate her. The sedating medication was discontinued when she was brought home and Nina immediately turned into a love bug with plenty of kisses, cuddling and lap sitting to share with everyone she met. While Nina has never displayed any form of aggression towards people, she has shown signs of extreme reactiveness with other animals and separation anxiety.
After COVID hit the area, the college student went home to a house that included another dog and cats. The family has tried everything to help Nina through whatever trauma she faced as a puppy but her fear aggression towards other animals is just not working in a multi pet household.
A great fit for Nina would be a one pet home with a fenced in yard as she loves, loves, loves to run. She loves kids, adults and all humans. Especially the ones that will let her lay on their lap. She does have separation anxiety, which the behaviorist said will lower with time, but a stay/work at home adult would be ideal.
ina is the sweetest most loving dog we’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. She has yet to meet a person she hasn’t loved or a lap she did not want to sprawl on. She’s the perfect cuddle buddy. 
To apply for the adoption of Nina, please submit an application at (no phone calls please). While Nina has displayed excellent house training abilities, her adopter should be prepared to offer a refresher course once she's in her new home.
