Home Dog Adoption Nova - PLEASE READ FULL BIO


Nova is a 1-year-old, 50-pound girl, likely to be a mix of an American Staffordshire terrier and a German Shepherd. As a puppy, Nova was abandoned along with her 4 siblings. They were put in a box and left on our doorstep. They were adopted locally, but the following year, Nova and her sister were once again abandoned. This time they were in worse condition. The first time, Nova was malnourished and treated for ticks. The second time, she was severely malnourished. Since then, she has been treated with the right love and care, and grown to a healthy weight! Nova is very calm and welcoming to everyone at the rescue. She loves to play with both teenagers and children. She also loves to play and share toys with all of the other dogs here at the rescue. She has not learnt any commands yet but her training with on-leash and off-leash environments is going great! She has not been cat tested so a cat-free household would be best. She is particularly shy and fearful with extremely loud bangs. She hides when she hears thunderstorms and fireworks. She would need a confident leader who could show her that she does not need to fear these things. We think a young couple or an active family with teenagers/kids would be the ideal home for this special lady. Other dogs in the home would be a bonus. Nova is a true water dog! She loves nature adventures and water activities. She was treated very poorly at the beginning of her life. But this did not stop her from being the sweet, happy-go-lucky pup that she is. She has been known to seek out the softest beds for her wind down and snuggle time. We are searching for that forever home that she truly deserves – full of water adventures, with the right love and comfort at the end of the day. Nova can be on a flight into Vancouver in the middle of August once and adoptive home is found.
