Plenty of Pets

Nova was handed over to a rescue because the people she was with were having problems getting her to listen, but it is now suspected that she may have problems hearing.

She’s doing well in her foster home by watching the other dogs and following what they do when a command is given.
Nova is 8 months old and weighs about 40 pounds. She is friendly with cats but does seem curious with them and wants to play and where she is a puppy she may be a little rough yet. She is friendly with other dogs and children and working on being fully house trained, as well as on normal puppy manners such as jumping up.

She has been spayed and vaccinated and will be available for adoption once testing on her hearing is complete.
