Coat length:
Nerina is a sweet sea monster, wanting to gobble up your heart.

With a guesstimated birthday in April 2021, Nerina weighs about 50 lb and is fully grown.

Nerina likes other dogs, but is suspicious of strangers. 
 She is house-trained when kept on a regular schedule. 
 Shes leash-savvy and comfy in a 42" crate to give her room to sprawl.  Due to the way she lays, she rubs some spots on her tail.  They arent bare, but the hair looks different.

Nerina is very athletic.  She loves to run in the yard with her doggy friends and play in water.  She can jump on the counter, when motivated, so her foster mom keeps a can of SSCAT - a motion-detecting air sprayer - turned on when Nerinas loose in the kitchen.  Her foster buddies egg her on so shell get in trouble!


Whether dogs / puppies come in as strays or owner surrenders, we usually have to make our best guess as to birthdate and breed.   

If adopted into a home with other animals, particularly cats, your new pet should be crated or secured when youre not available to supervise to insure a harmonious relationship.  

A vet reference is required to confirm responsible pet ownership.  Requirement is a minimum three year vet history documenting current / previous pets are spayed / neutered, kept up to date on core vaccinations, and on heartworm prevention.  We suggest first time pet owners without a vet history look for an adult dog for companionship and to gain experience.  Other rescues or your local government-run animal control agency may have different adoption requirements.

Adoption fee covers two vaccinations.  Additional fees for 3rd puppy vaccination, refundable spay/neuter deposit, etc. may apply.  

We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue.  We receive no funding from agencies.  

Not all foster dogs are available for viewing during public events at Tractor Supply (360 Blowing Rock Blvd) in Lenoir, NC.  Available animals can be seen most Saturdays at Tractor Supply in Lenoir from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  We recommend interested parties contact us to pre-qualify for adoption so their new furry family can go home once paperwork is complete.  Fees are required in cash.  For more information on our organization, our website is
