Pet of the Week

Meet Nova, our Pet of the Week!


Hi everyone, I'm Nova.  I've been at OC Animal Care for almost 3 months now and I've been trying my best to learn and be a good girl.  You see, I was brought here with my nine housemates, and we didn't know that we were lacking basic dog skills.  For example, we thought our army crawl was normal, but it turns out we can totally walk on our legs!  

I'm actually a really shy girl. I prefer slow introductions but once I warm up to you, I love to play and lean over for belly rubs!  A lot of staff and volunteers at the shelter have been showing me what real affection is like. I had no idea my tail could wag so much! 

I've come to learn what a leash is and why I need one, so I am proud to say I am easy to leash!  I have to admit, crawling is still kind of a habit, so I am continuously learning how to walk while being leashed.  I've been making a lot of progress, and I can't wait to show off my skills.

I still have a long way to go to being the perfect pup, so I will thrive in a home with someone who has a lot of patience and dog experience.  Can you be the trustful companion that I am longing for?  Please call OC Animal Care at (714) 935-6848 and mention my Animal ID A1848476 to adopt me!
