Do you enjoy the outdoors and fresh air? How about gardening? I do too! Hi, my name is Nissa. Black eyed Susan flowers are my favorite. Although I know that I am really the star of this photo shoot, I really enjoy showing off the latest blossoms in my garden. You may be able to see some of the flowers that I planted behind me in the photo. A comfortable Adirondack chair is a must, as well as a nice shady spot to relax in it. A cold bowl of water, some seeds, a shovel and most of all your company is my ideal day.
My friends at the shelter describe me as a lovely young girl looking for a quiet home. I quickly won the hearts of staff as I emerged from my shell after the confusion of being separated from my family. The ladies at the shelter soon found out that I love to go for walks! I am working on my leash walking skills and I catch on quickly. Sometimes I still pull but that is only because I am so eager to get out there and explore. I can still be shy when meeting new people, but I am super sweet. If you give me a chance you will soon see my playful side shine through. I have been working on crate training as well and have had the amazing opportunity to keep staff company in the office and even stay overnight. Due to my shy nature and no previous experience living with young children, staff is recommending a home with teens or adults for me. I have met a few dogs here at the shelter. I tend to enjoy quiet walks with the more laid back dogs, and feel that a home where I can be the only dog may be best for me.
