About Nova

Friends, say hello to Nova, a 1-2 year old German Shepherd we have been fostering. She is intelligent, inquisitive, and affectionate, and LOVES car rides. She has potential as a great cuddler but as she’s also very high energy she’d do well in a home with a comparably high energy playmate who can hold their own; she can be a bit domineering with her foster siblings. She is housebroken, well behaved, and knows basic commands. We are working on jumping (she just gets so excited!) as well as some leash reactivity, but she is improving quickly. Aside from being reactive to other dogs on leash, she is a dream to walk and will make a great adventure companion. This beauty is available for adoption through the Alternative Humane Society in Bellingham, WA, so if you know anyone in the PNW who could use a furry new best friend please pass this along!❤️

Adoption Fee: $275.00

Hi there! I'm Stella and if you're looking for your perfect dog, I may just be her! I'm a freshly 3 year old English setter. But don't let that scare you off! I'm just as happy laying on the couch with you as I am exploring the park. I love people, children, other respectful dogs, and even cats! I'm just happy to have someone to hangout with. I will go after your chickens though...I'm a bird dog! And because I love my people so strongly I do whine for a little while when you leave..up to 30 minutes. Is that something you can handle? I believe with some work I would eventually come to realise my humans always come back. I walk nicely on my leash and I love to swim, but above all I really love snuggling. Im also very smart and eager to please! I do have a couple minor issues. My back end has some arthritis and it does tend to hurt a bit. Sometimes when it's really bad I growl when you touch it, but I never bite! Because of this, I'll never be able to be a hunting or running/mountain hiking dog, but I can still play with the best of them! I take daily joint supplements and sometimes antinflamitories to manage my worst days. While I love children, I can't promise I wont nip if they jump on my back end and hurt me. I also have a bit of a dry eye issue and take daily eye drops. But I dont mind! Because I'm an English Setter, I have a high prey drive and may not do good in an unfenced yard or a yard with a short fence. And do to my whining while I'm alone (no home destruction just noise) I wouldn't do too well in a rental home. Crates also make me very sad! I just want to be with my humans! A home with retired parents or no close neighbors is my perfect fit! If you're looking for a nice, affectionate and respectful dog, I'm your girl!
