Feb 23 2019, 12:27 am

Nina is a little Mexican gal who is looking for a forever home in beautiful British Columbia.

Just seven-months-old, she is a bit over 21 pounds. Being a Labrador Retriever mix she has some growing to do and will be a medium-sized adult.

High energy and “gets along with everyone she meets,” PVCA Animal Rescue is hopeful that Nina can go to an active home that makes fitness a priority. Love hiking and long walks? So does Nina.

Nina gets along well with other dogs and tends to be the leader of the pack, according to the rescue.

She’s okay with cat companions, and is “very playful and friendly.”

“She is sweet and loves cuddles from her people,” they said.

The pup was rescued by the SPCA Puerto Vallarta, its sister organization in Mexico. The group has a sanctuary, staff and medical team which works with animals until they are deemed “adoptable” before making their way to Canada and the US to enter foster or permanent homes.

If you’re interested in adopting Nina, email [email protected] for an application, and to arrange a home visit. The group does not have a permanent Canadian shelter and uses foster homes around Vancouver to take in animals until a forever home is found.

The group currently has 35 dogs for adoption, looking for loving homes, including puppies, cattle dog mixes, Labrador mixes, German Shepherd mixes, Vizsla mixes and terrier mixes.

All of its animals are spayed/neutered and fully dewormed and up to date on vaccinations.
