About Nova

German Shepherd mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Our beautiful Nova is still looking for her furever home! Nova was rescued from the local shelter. Nova has been with us for a while as she needs a special home and we just haven't found the PERFECT fit we are looking for. Nova is about 4 years old. Nova prefers to be a one person dog. She picks her person and they are the love of her life. The other side is she doesn't like to share her person, so we believe Nova should be an only dog so that she doesn't feel the need to share her person or stuff with another dog. We don't know how she will be with cats, but given what we know an only pet home might just be the best for her. She wants to be with her special person all the time, so her new person will need to work on establishing boundaries for Nova. Nova is very athletic and can jump pretty high. She is not crate trained, but she does know her bed and can be given a command to go to her bed. She is housebroken. She enjoys toys, and can amuse herself with them. She's has medium energy level. Her ideal home is a quiet home preferably with a female owner (or a male with lots of patience and understanding) . We don't believe that she would be best with children as she can bark at those who are not her special person. She would do best in a home were someone is home a lot and can give her the attention she craves. She will need some practice on her leash skills as she is not going on walks regularly since she will only go with her special person. We are looking for an adopter who would be willing to come and visit with Nova over a period of time and get to know her and earn her trust, therefore living near our center in North Glendale area would be best or a willingness to travel. We won't be adopting her out of the county. She is special, but we know a perfect home is out there. We would really love to see Nova get the home she is looking for but also know that matching her with a right fit is the most important thing we can do for her.
