This girl is a hoot and a whole lot of fun! Nova is a 1 year-old Border Collie/Lab mix female who came to us from an overcrowded county dog shelter with no information on her previous life. We were impressed with her demeanor from the moment we met her though. Nova has never met a stranger and, in spite of having to make a fresh start with a new family, seems not to have a care in the world. She loved having her photos taken and was so willing to try on anything we asked of her—note the sunglasses! Nova gets along great with other dogs and would do well with a canine pal in her new home. She walks nicely on a leash for a young dog and with a little more training, she’ll be perfect. Nova picks up new routines quickly and seems to be a smart girl who’s a quick study. She keeps her crate spotless and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. If you’re looking for a great young dog, you’ll want to meet Nova! Nova weighs about 52 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Nova. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
