So sweet!

Nadiya is not currently available for adoption. She tested positive for heartworm and we are currently trying to raise $500 for her treatment. Nadiya passed her temperament test with outstanding scores and is highly deserving of this treatment. If you'd like to help sponsor Nadiya's treatment, please call us at 530-343-7917 to donate via phone, bring in or send in your donation to 2579 Fair Street, Chico CA 95928; or you can make a secure donation online at www.buttehumane.org/page/donate.php, but be sure to note that it is for Nadiya! Also if you are interested in fostering her after her treatment for 30 days please email foster@buttehumane.org and if you want to adopt after Nadiya is healthy please contact lindsaykingman@buttehumane.org. Please help this wonderful girl!

Nadiya has a beautiful temperament and great personality. We named her Nadiya because it means “hope” and with a long road to recovery ahead of her, we thought it was fitting. Nadiya came to us as a stray in March 2009 and no one came for her. Nadiya scored all A’s on her temperament test and is going to make some lucky family a wonderful companion! Nadiya is very eager to please and is also treat motivated. She sits immediately on command and will lie down as well. Nadiya pulls a lot on leash, but is like a completely different dog when she is walking on a Gentle Leader collar, even a toddler could walk her on one of those! Since Nadiya is still so young, athletic and high energy, she needs to find a home with kids that are at least five years old. Nadiya has met a few other dogs at the shelter and loved each of them. She would be very happy to find a new home with dogs. Nadiya was introduced to our office cat and was curious about him, but wouldn’t hurt him. When I told her “no cat” she looked at me quickly and forgot about it. I think that Nadiya could live in a home with cats as long as she is trained around them and they are dog savvy. She seems like she just doesn’t know what cats are. I can’t say enough about how great Nadiya’s temperament is. She loves to snuggle and wiggles in huge excitement every time she sees a new person that she wants to greet. Nadiya is just a super girl that will surely brighten up her adopter’s life. Adoption- $75
