General Comments

 Nadia is one unique looking gal.  She is quite the attention grabber.  Her perky, flip-flopping ears are quite adorable.  Nadia is also an active, leggy gal that loves to romp in the grass and if we let her she would chase lizards all day long.  Thankfully she is easily distracted, especially if you bring out one of her favorite toys, Kong Wubba.  She loves to prance around shaking her prize.  Rope toys are another big favorite.  She tugged and pulled on the rope for a good hour with one of our volunteers.  After game time Nadia curls up into a small ball and falls fast asleep.

Nadia is the type of gal that needs to get to know you a little before she welcomes you into her loving paws.  Give her five minutes to get acquainted and then she is happy to call you her friend.  Then she is happy to share her affections with you or to have some playtime.

Nadia is looking for a low traffic home.  She can be an only dog or in a home with a small dog to keep her company.  Daily walks to keep her trim figure are required.  Lastly, a home with her favorite toys are high on Nadia's wish list.  

If you're looking for a small, sweet, smart gal, Nadia is your gal!  Please fill out an application for her today.  She is eager to hear from you and start the next chapter of her life.
