Nina is a nine month old Wolfhound cross Bull Arab puppy. She is a sweet and placid doe-eyed girl. Her favourite thing to do is to stretch her legs on a run, go for a ride in the car or have a cuddle on the couch. She is very reluctant to leave the couch or car (and due to her size, can be difficult to shift!).
Nina is a special, soulful girl who is being reluctantly rehomed due to the risk of her developing behavioural issues as a result of being too attached to her sister. Nina has not yet been separated from her sister from the same litter, so there have been some issues with her bonding with humans. She is timid and takes a while to trust a new human. As a result, her recall is poor. She is picky with men, and more inclined to trust a woman. She is sweet-natured and affectionate when she has decided that she trusts you.
Nina is good with dogs, cats and kids. At present, she is hyper-focused on her sister and would much prefer to play and cuddle with her rather than other dogs, however, she has never shown any signs of aggression towards dogs, cats or humans and will occasionally enjoy playing with another dog.
Nina has spent a lot of time around small children. She happily tolerates being played with by small children (she is far more trusting of them than adults!) and is very gentle and submissive.
Nina’s sister has taken an unhealthy interest in sheep and chickens. Nina has never attacked another animal, however, she has a tendency to follow her sister’s cues so we cannot guarantee that she is suitable around livestock, pocket pets or birds.
Nina is a very big girl, with more growing to do. Despite her size, she is not a high-energy dog and is actually quite lazy, much preferring a cuddle and a snooze over a game of ball. Nina knows basic commands and walks well on a lead.
Nina will need a loving, stable home and would benefit from the company of another dog that she can learn from. Also required is a lot of time, patience and love to make this girl feel safe and secure. A gentle owner committed to continuing her training and building her confidence and bonding with her will be rewarded with a beautiful, docile, and loyal companion.
