Nivens 036


Nivens is 3-4 years old and weighs roughly 55-60 lbs. This retired hunting dog has had a hard life (including filed teeth and major trauma to her front right leg which healed incorrectly), but you wouldn’t know it by her loving personality. She is a laid back girl – a total love bug really who takes treats ever so gently and enjoys attention.  She is house trained but does need some basic training to correct jumping on people. Nivens does well around people and other dogs and has a gentle personality. Nivens would make a great addition to any family.



To meet Nivens at an adoption event, please e-mail or call (703)295-DOGS.
