This is definitely the strangest car ride I was ever on!! We were airborne!!
Okay!! No more sauce for me!! Hopefully, I was winging my way to my new forever home!

Meet 11 year-old Nina! She is a beautiful all natural dobergirl who found herself in a high kill shelter outside Atlanta, GA after her owner died. Her owner's family had no use for their mother's precious Nina and she was immediately placed on the euthanasia list at the shelter due to her age. A wonderful shelter worker fell in love with Nina's sweet personality and started keeping her in her office while she was at work. She also contacted the Doberman Assistance Network. When Arda at Second Chance Doberman Rescue said send her to us. Pilots N Paws joined in the effort and Miss Nina added airplane flight to her list of experiences. This wonderful Senior girl is a bit of a grouch with other dogs but is a total lover to all people. She is in the beginning stages of Wobbler's Disease but is still very active. Her favorite pastime is snoozing on her dog bed.

Special Needs if any: Wobbler's Disease

Geographic areas: MI, IN, OH, IL, and some regions of Canada

The Sponsor A Senior program helps Seniors by raising funds for their rescue programs. This helps offset some of the additional costs that come with caring for a senior (diet, medications, supplements, etc.). Please read more about this program on the Sponsor A Senior page.

Miss Nina is looking for a sponsor! The cost to sponsor a Senior Dobe is $30 per month or $360 per year. You can sponsor a Senior for one month, one year, or somewhere in between.
