  Meet Dora!

Dora came to NBGR, an owner surrender. She is 8 months old and full of vigor. She is as energetic as any 8 month old puppy. Dora loves to run and play, gets along well with other dogs and she just loves everybody. She uses caution with the unfamiliar and it seems that she has a healthy fear of a few things and/or noises.

Dora is a solid girl. Healthy. And she is a big girl, weighing it at 15 pounds. She is up to date on all shots. She is also microchipped and will be spayed prior to being placed in her new home. She is learning crate training and doing very well. Dora loves human companionship, and still tolerates being left alone; after a few moments of whining will settle down when left alone crated.

This girl is however, in the puppy equivalent of the terrible twos. She loves to bark. She loves to chew things, but is easily redirected. Provided with toys, she will play and chew on those items, still she does need to be watched and taught what is off limits. For the sake of personal items, Dora, at this time in her life, needs to be crated when she is left alone. Dora is very intelligent so it is doubtful that there will be too much effort required to train her. She loves to play, especially with other dogs. She would do well in a home with other dogs near to her age but one probably should be careful with older dogs in the home. She's big, playful and clumsy; she could possibly be "too much" for a senior dog. Dora will chase cats, but so far seems to get along with cats if they are tolerant of dogs.

Though she will make a great addition to a family, because of her energy level she will undoubtedly need a home with a fenced yard so she can have room to run.

Dora is being fostered in Pensacola, Florida.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Lisa at lisa.percy914@gmail.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
