Nebula is such a People Puppy. She's not really a puppy anymore, but to her, meeting people is the cat's meow. She is a social butterfly who loves all strangers, and she immediately wants everyone to be her new best friend. If you are looking to make new friends, Nebula will happily introduce you to new people.

This sweet girl loves getting attention from her human friends. She'll paw them to let them know it's petting time, and she will take all the pets you can give. She's even excited to hang with children. The more attention, the merrier, she thinks. Let's play!

She's an obedient lady who walks well on a leash and comes when called. She is also smart enough to understand "sit" and "no." She's also housetrained and loves her crate. If you leave her home alone she will happily snooze in her crate while her humans are away. Come meet Nebula, she wants to make your life merry!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.

Come meet your new best friend
