Nina (aka Dina)


Dina is eight years old and has had a pretty awful life as a 'puppy farm' bitch. She is very friendly but more trusting of women than men, whom she takes a little while to get used to. However, she doesn't run away, just flinches and hangs back.


She was in appalling condition when she was brought into Rescue by a lady who kindly bought her to get her away from the awful conditions she was in and then gave her to us so we could take care of her.


She is very afraid of strange environments and will need to be on the lead in open spaces for a long time. We will update more as we get to know her better and after she has seen our vet. She needs spaying and a general health check, including Leishmaniasis testing, and her teeth are in an awful state.
