Meet Nubbs! Sadly, this sweet and smart girl found her way to a shelter in South Carolina. OPH scooped her up and she is ready for her forever home. She is a petite girl around 40-50 lbs thought to be a Retriever/Australian Shepherd Mix. Nubbs definitely displays some of the wonderful quirkiness of Aussies. She is spayed, up-to-date on shots, and fostered in Sykesville, MD. What we know about Nubbs: *A great age - she is about 4 years old *Crate trained - she is quiet in her crate *Good house manners - house trained and just wants to be near you *Intelligent - walks well on leash, knows sit and down *Great for adults - kids are loud and a little scary *Excited about car rides - hops right in the car and gets comfy *Excellent pup for a low to medium energy single person, couple, or family with older children *Loyal and Eager to Please - She bonds very quickly to her family and just wants to be near you *Currently fostered with other smaller dogs. Prefers low-key submissive dogs as friends. *Cat uncertain- she isn't much of a chaser and would likely do fine with a cat, 'lived' with an outside cat previously **NOT recommended for families that live in apartments Note: Nubbs came to OPH worried about strangers. She continues to take some time to warm up. Once she knows you, she is in love. In her foster home, she loves being lazy, enjoys time in the backyard, and loves walks. She is working on building self confidence and would love an adopter to continue working with her on this. A little pack leadership and love will ensure a happy, long life together. We highly suggest additional training.
