07/07/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I have two words for you: bat ears! In addition to be being absolutely adorable, Nova the extra-large bat is affectionate with her people (or perhaps knows that friendliness means more treats!), loves butt scratches, and seems to be housetrained. She pulls a tiny bit on the leash but walks great with a harness, and hasn’t discovered a love for tennis balls yet (although she definitely knows she loves treats). Nova loves to explore and pays close attention to her surroundings, leaving no stone unturned. If you’re looking for an energetic, feisty little lady who is sure to turn heads with her beautiful ears, come and meet Nova today at the Brooklyn ACC!

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/28/17: During her medical examination, Nova was very sociable and allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Nova so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
