Nina has been adopted. Many thanks to everyone for sharing her story. It worked! Check out this happy dog on the way to her new home.

Sadly, Nina continues to be overlooked and forgotten. With tears in their eyes, volunteers have heard parents telling their children that Nina is “too old and she will die soon.” Although Nina can not understand the words, her demeanor is a sure sign she knows she is no longer wanted nor loved. On October 10, she arrived at the Miami-Dade Animal Shelter Services as a stray. Will she walk out the front door with a smile and a new life, or will she die being held by a stranger as poison is injected slowly into her front leg?

Vounteer Jani Bradford is very concerned about the senior’s plight;

“I think she can sense it, and she’s losing all hopes, she doesn’t want to eat anymore and she’s getting extremely sad. Are there any senior lovers out there that can give her a home and make her happy again? Please help Nina find a loving home?,” wrote Jani.

Nina is listed as an 11-year-old Akita mix. Follow her Facebook page here. Another volunteer offered the following:

“Nina #A0866175
11-year-old Akita mix girl. Came in a stray on October 10, and owners have not come to claim she is available as of today 10–14. She lay slumbering in one of the exhibit rooms until I tapped on the glass and she looked up slowly but did not advance. She seems to have fairly dense cataracts so I do not know how well she can see. The seniors make wonderful, very mellow, laid-back pets if an energetic dog is not what you seek. She needs a place to live out her golden years. Please tag and share. Located at Miami Dade animal services 305-884-1101.

Share Nina’ plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. We are all that Nina has – please make sure to send her story to a least one friend and ask them to do the same. It will only take a moment, but could be seen by the one person who could save this senior’s life.

    Miami Dade. Nina is perfect for someone. Please get her for your Mom who might be up there in years like Nina. dogs that become family are wonderful for companionship. They keep the elderly up and moving but just a bit. For health reasons dogs are known to provide a reason for living. They are also the best insurance policy a body could have. They are absolute devotion once they love you. dogs are FUN too.

    Please save this precious senior girl. She will give you so much more than any amount of money. Mellow, and just looking for a nice lap to curl up in or by and be there for you for the remainder of her life. She will please you every day. Senior dogs are the best!

    How about shelters that would like to be no kill? Taxpayers/citizens would all be behind an adoption program whereby seniors could adopt senior dogs or cats for very minimal cost. Suggest there be a group formed that would volunteer should the senior have a hospital stay and no family to help. It’s unbelievable how much this is appreciated and a good way to feel good about yourself. You help animals and seniors in need.

    Shared on FB. Please save Nina. She deserves to live out her years in a loving home. Senior dogs are great. I have two of them.

    Nina would make a great companion to a senior citizen – she deserves a safe loving home. NO dog is too old for adoption – you are passing by a wonderful pet who will give unconditional love to one lucky caring individual. That mother who said she was ‘too old’ has rocks for brains.
