Pit bull Mix
Tan and White
3 years 1 month
I am a spayed female, tan and white Pit Bull Terrier mix. Nadia came to the shelter, nursing a litter of puppies. Oddly, after about a week in foster care, Nadia was found to have a gnarly ear infection that we suspect caused a vestibular syndrome, which is a specialized part of the brain/nervous system responsible for maintaining balance, walking and normal head/eye position. This was very unusual for Nadia since it is most commonly seen in senior animals. The upside is that after treatment (and LOTS OF LOVE) in her foster home, she has improved greatly. Our veterinarians suspect that she'll continue to improve with time, although the head tilt may remain, as it does is some cases.This pretty girl is READY to find her forever home and will remain in foster care until then. Here's what her foster family has to say about her: Nadia can be a bit shy at first, but don't worry- you'll fall in love with her in no time! However due to her shyness, Nadia is best for a quieter, mature home. Nadia enjoys to go on walks and adventures with her foster mom, but one of her absolute favorite activities is snuggling up on the couch to relax... she thinks she's a lap dog! Nadia gets along well with dogs of all sizes, but seems to prefer calmer dogs. Nadia does get excited around cats so we are looking for a home preferably with no cats or other small animals. She is housebroken, well-mannered, and very laid back. She is a very sensitive pup, but with a bit of patience is a very fast learner and will do almost anything for a treat or squeaky toy! Nadia would love to have a family to call her own- do you think you could be the one for her? Please contact Nadia's foster mom, Katelyn, at [email protected] to set up a visit or inquire about Nadia. Please allow up to 24 hours for Katelyn to respond.
We do our best to update our adoptable pet listing as quickly as possible. However, there may be times when an animal is not at the shelter. Thank you for your understanding!
