There are some wonderful dogs that have been in foster care for a long time. Despite having all the qualities of a great family pet, they have been overlooked. We want to introduce you to another one of those dogs – Nefa. Nefa is a 7 year old female Chocolate Lab / German Short Hair Pointer mix who has been in foster care for three years. She is in the loving care of Donna at Cal State Dog Rescue. Donna is also the organizer of that group.
Nefa has one issue that keeps her from being adopted – she does not get along well with other dogs, making it difficult to take her to the adoption events. Nefa needs to be the only dog in her new family, but that shouldn’t keep her from being adopted. Many families have just one dog, including ours. We have an opportunity to help her find the permanent loving home she deserves. For more information about Nefa you can visit her page on Cal State Dog Rescue’s website.
We had the honor of taking new photos of this beautiful girl. Within a few minutes after meeting her, we felt comfortable putting her in the backseat of our car and taking her to our backyard for the photos. She was excited in a good way, yet relaxed. As you would expect, she loved getting attention and treats! After running around our yard for a bit she became very comfortable in her new environment. It was a hot day and she really wanted to lie down and get treats and belly rubs! Here are some of the pictures we took.
Nefa was so relaxed that she felt comfortable lying down in our patio.
After this photo, we gave her a treat, and she rolled over looking for a belly rub!
After her belly rub, she came right over to Judy and put her head in her lap.
She allowed us to pick her up and put her in our Radio Flyer wagon, and patiently stayed there while we snapped a few photos. After a treat appeared, she came right over.
It was a hot day so she didn’t want to chase a ball or play tug of war. Instead, she went into the shade and laid down for a nap.
If you want to meet this beautiful girl, she will be at the Cal State Dog Rescue adoption event at Pet Food Express on August 12th from 1-5pm. The address is 1902 Bascom Ave, Campbell, 95008. If you are interested in adopting her, you can fill out adoption paperwork here. We can’t wait to see you there!
