Nonie 2802

Nonie was found as a TX stray with her litter of 7 puppies.  All of her puppies have been adopted.  Nonie is still searching high and low for her forever home.  She has been with her VA foster family since May 2023.  Nonie is wondering why no one wants her.....  This sweet, gentle gal is 2-3 years old, around 65 lbs, and has the best smile ever! She is pretty close to perfect! Seriously. If you want a low-maintenance best friend, this girl is for you. Nonie is crate-trained, potty-trained, spayed, healthy, and heartworm negative! She aims to please and is easily corrected.

Nonie is kid-friendly, but maybe more suitable for older children to ensure she does not knock down any little ones!  She is NOT cat-friendly and does not care for small dogs.  Nonie loves playing with her dog friends, going for  walks, water activities, watching (chasing) squirrels, and snuggling with her humans. She is very food-motivated and takes treats very gently.

She would be perfectly fine as an only dog or in a home with another pup or two. Nonie is very patient and playful with the 1-year-old resident puppy, and they really enjoy wrestling and chasing each other. 

All Nonie needs to be happy is a full belly, a soft bed/couch, a few walks per day, and lots of snuggles. She enjoys being outside and would love a yard, but it's not required.

She does struggle with a fear of thunderstorms, can be reactive on the leash, and she is  a sloppy drinker. Hey, no one is perfect.

Nonie says: 'Please take a chance on me!!'
