Nina: Black Female X, 8 years, 65 lbs.
Hi Friends, my name is Nina and I have a dream. I dream that I am the family Labrador, kids climbing over me and slipping me snacks, puppy kisses and unconditional love all around. Running around the yard with my two legged brothers and sisters. Playing in the sun. My very own collection of toys. A warm bed to lie my head. And best of all, a family to call my own!
Now, as an orphan, not too much is known about my past but people have always told me not to dream. Don't get your hopes up. But I wouldn't stop! Not even when I was put all alone in a scary place where death surrounded me. It was called a "shelter" but it didn't feel like shelter to me - it was scary! But I didn't give up, I kept dreaming! After all, if we really, really want something, we really, really try, if you add a little magic puppy dust, dreams do come true - I know, because it is happening to me! You see, the Defenders of Dogs, the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno, looked into my heart and they saw my dreams. They saw me sitting in that shelter, so sad that I was left behind. They knew I had a destiny more to fill! Now they are trying to find me a home where I will be loved and cherished as they say I deserve. Isn't life grand?!?
Now, while I am looking for my furever family of my own, I get to live in a house with not one, not two, but three little boys! That is happiness on six feet, let me tell you! The little one thinks I am a pony, the middle one and I are a comedic team. The oldest is in school and very smart - I love it when he comes home at the end of the day and gives me a hug! My Labby Heart wants to be the other mother, to kiss their booboo's, to see them safe. I am good on a leash, potty trained, and will sleep in a crate if you like. I love to play with stuffed toys and collect them in a pile. I love belly rubs - I have years without them to make up for. My dream can come true if only you will see – that I can be the missing piece in your almost perfect dream. You, me, our two legged family - add puppy dust and love, life doesn't get any better! Won't you please make me part of your family? Please?
