Nola came from St. Landry Parish in Louisiana after being dumped at the shelter by her owner. She was so beside herself with grief and fear she was trying to find places to hide and climbing the walls, but now that she feels safe she's a different dog. Nola is emaciated and heartworm positive. She displays some characteristics of a dog with a brain injury or past illness-causing some neurological and vision deficits. She has started steroids for her heartworm treatment and we've seen a big change in her coordination and personality. We're going to get her healthy, treated for heartworms, and spayed. Nola is a special dog. She needs someone who would love a constant companion and someone who has the patience to allow her to adjust over time. She's very affectionate. She's currently crated during the day when no one's home. She does pretty well around other dogs, but doesn't seem to rely on them like she does her person. Young kids are scary at first so older kids and adults would be best. Not sure on cats. We are looking for someone who has the time and desire to give Nola a loving home. It would be a Foster-to-Adopt situation. We would continue covering her veterinary care until her heartworm treatment and spay are complete. Her adoption fee is $200.
