Nesta 3023

Nesta was rescued from a high kill shelter in TX.  She has made it to VA! Upon arrival, she was very scared and did not want to get out of her crate. We don't know what she has been through, but it is plain to see she has not had a great life. Nesta has now started living the good life with her foster.  It took Nesta a while to start trusting.  Now that she has started to settle in at her foster home, she knows she is safe. Nesta has become a Velcro dog and follows her fomom everywhere. She is always asking for pets and butt scratches. This young lady is friendly but definitely needs to work on her manners   She gets along with dogs but hasn't quite figured out how to play.  A home with a fur sibling will help her to learn.  Nesta does great around small children but because of her jumping and zoomies, a home with older children is recommended.  She has not been cat tested as yet.  Nesta is up to date on vaccinations, has been spayed and is heart worm negative. 



​Nesta started her professional training at Sadie's Rules K9 Training on 2/2024 to further develop the confidence she needs to be the best version of herself. She is doing very well there and is learning even the basic commands from scratch. She is a high energy and high drive dog but enjoys simple things and an "ordinary" dog life. Nesta is not super-outgoing. She manages just fine on occasional outings but prefers to be a homebody and does not like to go outside at night. She likes being around other dogs and is still learning proper cues from other dogs as she was not socialized prior to coming into rescue.  At this point, we will say no cats because of her drive but she has not been officially tested. Stay tuned as we learn more about her!
