Nevada is a special girl who has been with us far too long and we want the right home for her right now, so we are putting out the news about her and asking you to share with anyone who sounds like they might be the perfect fit.
She is a Catahoula Leopard dog, who has been with us here at the Shelter on and off for about 15 months now. We know the right person is out there so we asked Nevada to tell you a bit about herself and what she is looking for in a perfect match, dating profile-style.
“I don’t want to be a bother, but I have a few small requests for my person. It takes a while to earn my trust so I need a patient, loving person to put in the time and care to help me learn that it’s okay to trust again! Once I bond with you, I am very protective of my person/people.
I really would prefer all of your attention (is that too much to ask?) so I need a home with no cats, small dogs or young children. Though I will create a very strong bond with my person, I do need a muzzle in public because it’s hard for me to trust strangers.(Come on, don’t we all have a friend who could use a muzzle in public?)
I know I have some flaws but they are not all my fault. I just need the chance to show my person just how great I can be. Once we get to know each other I am playful and goofy! I enjoy tummy rubs and cuddles. I’m a lap dog as well as the staff here discover when they visit with me and give me pets. I like to show them all of my toys too!
I have to admit that under my pretty fur, I am a little chubby which is why I’m on a diet for now but hey, I come by it honestly living in a smaller space for this long. I don’t want to brag, but I have so much potential and I am ready to be your best friend for life!
I have done well with a professional trainer and if you adopt me we’ll get a free training session! I’m sorry to ramble on. I love the staff here, but I’ve just been here so long and I’m ready for my forever person. Please spread the word about me and help me finally find my home!
P.S. I also like long walks…on the beach, or pretty much anywhere. Also, full disclosure – I can’t really talk. In case you were wondering. ”
Update: We are grateful for the generous support from Prairie Raw who are now offering discounted raw food and lifetime training support to Nevada’s eventual adopter!
