Nerina is a 9 month old female Hound Cross. She is a beautiful girl who can steal hearts in just minutes. She was found as a stray on the streets of Limassol, and was later lucky enough to be offered a foster home locally, where she is now safe, loved, and flourishing. However, we all know the best place for these dogs to be is a forever home, so that’s what we’re hoping we can find her.
Nerina is around nine months old and still learning new things every day. She’s very smart, keen to please, and affectionate, and she has already figured out that if she sits and gives her paw she gets loads of fuss! She also likes to nuzzle into you for extra cuddles, and loves being stroked, and snuggled.
She’s very people oriented and sociable with everyone she meets – it doesn’t take long at all for her to trust new people. Nerina is currently living alongside a number of other dogs and has no problems at all with them.
She’s mindful of being too playful with the little ones but loves to charge around with other dogs of her size. She’s not a boisterous player, but does have a fair amount of energy and needs a home that likes being active. Equally, Nerina isn’t a shy dog and doesn’t depend on the company of other pups to feel safe, so she could be rehomed as the only resident dog in the household. Nerina is very gentle and we feel she would be fine in a home with children.
She would be better with children aged 6+ we feel, so she’s not too overcrowded by little hands, and she has also been exposed to cats in her foster home and has been fairly disinterested in them. We think in a household with dog-savvy cats she would be absolutely fine. Nerina will make an amazing companion in the right home.
She is highly trainable, keen to please, eager to learn, and very devoted. She is equal parts cuddly and adventurous and will love snuggling up on the sofa at the end of the day as much as she will love going out for long walks with her family.
Nerina’s nose sometimes gets the better of her and she loves to peek up on the counter to see if anyone’s left any snacks, so this will need to be managed by not leaving food in her path, but otherwise, she is very obedient. With continued training and socialization, we think she will grow into a very balanced all-rounder.
As she’s a hound mix, she needs a family who understands her love of scenting and can give her ample opportunities to use her natural instinct so a home in a semi-rural location would be her dream for her. Nerina is currently based in Cyprus and has a clean bill of health. She is ready to travel once she finds her forever home.
