Ellie and Jake
Nova is a petite 42 lb, five-year-old Australian Cattle Dog / Collie / Belgian Malinois mix who loves cuddling, hiking, and working with her trainer. Sensitive by nature, she is a sweet, silly, and loving companion who is affectionate with her inner circle of people and makes new friends slowly. Once trust is built, she is loyal and affectionate with new people (and some dogs) and will continue to invite new members into her tribe. Loyal and obedient, she loves spending time — especially outdoors! — with her family and her clan.
Nova is super smart, alert, and eager to please, and would thrive with ongoing structured training from an experienced dog owner or trainer. She responds best to a combination of consistent, positive reinforcement, plenty of structured physical activity and supervised outdoor time, occasional treats, and plenty of gentle affection. Active, agile, and athletic by nature, she would be thrilled to learn obstacle course work, nose work, or hone her frisbee skills with her new owner. She is great on leash and loves long walks, hikes, and the occasional camping trip.
She will thrive in a quiet, stable home without too many distractions or interruptions. She is looking for a new home without any small children. One dog may be okay, depending on age/temperament, but no cats (her herding instinct likes to chase them). Her ideal home is outside of the city with ample outdoor space to run around in (or access to plenty of outdoor space nearby).
Nova is looking for someone who can make her feel safe and help build her confidence. With ongoing active training, positive daily routines, plenty of positive reinforcement, and the firm but loving presence of her new owner, she will be a loyal and affectionate companion for life.
