Nova, 2, is a 50-pound spayed female pit bull mix. She loves to run and play, so she will need an active owner. Nova is also a cuddly, loving dog, but she can be overwhelmed by younger children, so would do best in a home with just adults or older kids. She is very smart and highly trainable, so she easily learned basic obedience and tricks through the Inmate Dog Alliance Project of Idaho program. She loves playing with other dogs, though an introduction with potential canine housemates will be required before she goes to a new home. And because she is an IDAPI graduate, an application is required. You can find one at idahohumanesociety.org/programs/idapi/adoption-application.
