01/30/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: The most beautiful hippopotamus and the sweetest pit bull got together, made a BBD (that’s a big, beautiful dreamboat), called her Nina…and here she is! She is talkative in her cage and not stopping to pay her attention would be a huge mistake. She was previously a yard dog, so she might still be perfecting her housetraining and leash walking, but seems to be getting the hang of both (with me she mostly walks great considering her size…and she wags her tail the whole time!). She’s reported to get along with both children and dogs and has displayed soft body language with other dogs in our playgroups so far. She loves treats (gotta maintain that figure!), is super wiggly when greeting staff members we encounter, and already knows some basic commands. On our first outing I threw a tennis ball and must’ve completely caught her off guard; she stopped, dropped and rolled as if ducking for cover! It turns out Nina actually loves playing fetch and she doesn’t just submissively roll over…she loves belly rubs!! She’ll roll her head right into my lap, sort of manage to ask for a belly rub while still sitting, and make super charming noises as she flops around. This endearing, sweet, docile, chunky lady is worth many multiples of her weight in gold and would love to take up all of your couch…please come see her for yourself at Brooklyn ACC!
