Meet Nilla! This friendly girl is anxious to be part of a warm and loving home. She is about 1-and-a-half years old and weighs around 62 pounds. She has been in and out of the shelter for the past few months since she tends to have a lot of separation anxiety. Nilla just needs someone who she can trust to teach her the ropes. She will do well in a house with a gentle dog and older kids. She is smart and eager to learn, and already knows “sit” and “paw” commands! She can be quite sensitive and overwhelmed by her environment, but once she settles in, Nilla is gentle and confident. Do you have a big toy basket at your house? She loves those! Nilla likes to carry toys around in her mouth all day and snuggle up with a soft toy. Nilla would love to share a treat and a cuddle soon – come meet her today!
