About Nova

Australian Cattle Dog / Rat Terrier
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female

Meet Nova. We haven't been able to figure out why Nova has been passed over by adopters because Nova is a shelter favorite! Nova always has a smile on her face. She has a happy go lucky personality and is just a sweet snuggler. This smart girl loves cuddles, knows how to do a sit and give paw for a cookie. She would make a great hiking companion and then hang out with you at home. Nova is often found keeping the staff company during their lunch time. While they would miss her terribly, they agree that Nova deserves to have her own home and family to love. Nova gets along with other dogs and would do well with kids age 7+. We do not know what she thinks of cats. Nova is about 42 pounds and a year old. Put in your application to come meet & fall in love with this awesome girl! Additional video: We do NOT ship our animals. All adoptive families must travel to us to meet their adoptive dog/cat. Applicants must live within a 2 hour radius from Sparta/Andover (07871/07821). Please understand that we are an animal shelter and thus unable to say whether the dogs are housebroken as they are not in homes.
