Nova is an awesome 3-year-old pit bull mix. She was a bit fearful at first, but it didn’t take much to get her love and attention. She is VERY food motivated and loves chewing on toys and bones. She will listen to you and ask for scratches and hugs as many times as you can give her. She did great with other dogs, but has a tendency to run after cats and bark at them. She gets very excited every time she sees one, but it's not hard to get her attention back. She has not been around kids yet. 

She does great in her crate, but loves to jump on the bed to cuddle too. Watch your ear lobes as she loves to lick them. Some work is needed for house training, but she is a fast learner. She learned to sit in two days! She loves going on walks and playing with toys. She would ideally love a house with a yard, but she will do fine in an apartment as long as she gets walked multiple times a day.

Please read through our adoption policies and requirements at www.awfpva.org/adoptions prior to requesting an application. 

We require all animals in the household to be up-to-date on core vaccines. Dogs must be vaccinated against rabies, canine distemper, and Bordetella. They must also have a current Heartworm test. Cats must be vaccinated against rabies and feline distemper. 

All of our animals are in foster homes. We will schedule meet and greets after approving your adoption application to ensure our fosters are only meeting with serious applicants. Please allow 1-2 weeks for approval as AWFP is run by volunteers who are full-time veterinary students.
