My name is Nova and I am a 4 year old, lab mix. My name actually means "new" like a new member of your pack perhaps?
I am looking for a very special family. See it was recommended that both of my knees needed surgery, lots of rehab and much needed rest. Now I walk with a hunched back and when I go for walks it is much more like a little hobble. I now wear a harness and knee brace which helps support me for walks.
But I am anything but a broken dog. I am happy, sweet and affectionate. It takes me a bit of time to warm up to new people but once I get to know them I am a big suck. I am good with all people, dogs, cats and even chickens. I do this cute thing where I lick the air when I want to give kisses. I was never taught how to give kisses so my version is licking the air close to you.
I am a good girl in the house. I don't have any bad habits like counter surfing or trying to run out the door. I like to be close to where you are and snuggle up.
My two favorite hobbies are fetching and swimming. When I swim I wear a life jacket for my safety but I could do it all day long. It is necessary for my mobility that I go to a home that has a pool or cottage that I can use to help keep me strong and active.
Overall, I am looking for a very special and particular home that understands that I am not like the other dogs but I am going to make one special companion to a family that will give me a chance to thrive.
