Are you looking for a laid back sophisticated companion? Look no further – Nani is the girl for you. She is a 9 year old red tri female Aussie who is just the sweetest thing. Nani came to CHAR a few years ago but has since been returned due to changes in her adopter’s living situation. She was previously known as Lucy but now goes by Nani. Nani means “Beauty” in Hawaiian, and a beauty she is indeed. Nani loves to be your sidekick and wants to be where you are. She also wants you to be where she is as well! If she wants to go outside to play or potty, she wants you to go with her. She politely scratches at the door to go out, but watches to see if you’re going to follow. It’s the sweetest thing. Since she likes to be by your side, she can show some separation anxiety. She would do best in a home where someone is home to be with her more often than not. She’s completely housebroken and trustworthy to be left free roaming in the house; she finds her bed and a toy and she waits for you to come home. She is not a fan of a crate but is crate trained. At night she sleeps on her bed throughout the entire night like a good girl.

Nani is very smart and knows some basic commands. You don’t have to worry about her running off or straying too far from you. She has done great with her foster canine siblings but can be the “fun police” if others get out of hand! She doesn’t like any nonsense. She’s more into hanging out with her human family though. Nani is very intrigued by cats and wants to be their best friend! She also likes to watch them from afar after a few bonks to the head, but has done really well around them. Nani’s favorite thing is her comfy dog bed – no matter the size if there’s a bed empty – she’s in it! Nani does great on a leash and would enjoy going on a leisurely walk but she is a little slower. That’s ok though – more time to soak up the outdoors. She’s super friendly and gentle with everyone, including children of all ages. Nani may not be a cute puppy anymore, but has many years left to love and is way past the tough years of puppyhood!

Nani is currently fostered in Hickory, NC. She is UTD on vaccinations and heartworm prevention and is microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250.
