Ready to complete your family?


Meet Nova, a charming adult dog with a heart full of love. She's a sweet soul, always ready to give affection to those she trusts. Nova is friendly and approachable, a perfect companion for those looking for a loyal friend. Despite her shyness, she opens up quickly and reveals her goofy side, bringing joy to every day. Nova has an independent streak, content to explore on her own but always returning to your side. She thrives in a calm environment and gets along best with serene canine companions. Nova is more than just a shelter dog; she's a loyal friend, a confidante, a source of endless amusement with her silly antics. Adopting Nova means bringing home a bundle of joy that will fill your life with love and laughter. Give Nova a chance, and she will show you the true meaning of unconditional love and companionship.
