  Meet Frida!

Meet Frida! She is an 18-month-old belge rough female. She still has her tail, which means there is a little more of her to love! She was wandering the streets of L.A. when a car hit her. A good Samaritan saw the accident swooped in to help. She rushed Frida to the vet and then nursed her back to health. She called NBGR and kept Frida until we found a good foster home for her. Now Frida is on the road to recovery in a loving foster home!

Frida has a sweet, calm disposition and loves her "foster family," but not a super velcro dog. She loves to play fetch with her balls. She needs something to keep her busy, otherwise she is prone to chewing. She gets along well with other dogs, after a careful introduction to keep her from getting overwhelmed.

Although Frida didn't suffer any broken bones, she does have some residual effects from her accident. She doesn't have full use of her hind legs. She loves to walk in the park and has lots of energy, but she staggers just a little. She can run like the wind, but gets a little tangled up when she stops. She cannot jump higher than a curb. This means her new home will probably need to have a ramp so that Frida can make it onto the couch and the bed, if she's allowed to sleep in the big bed. Frida is happy to sleep in her own crate at her foster home.

Frida is doing great with her potty training, but she still hasn't quite learned to ask to go outside, so she has an occasional accident. Her new family will need to continue helping her learn her house manners.

She is very good on a leash, but is very wary of strangers. She does not bark in the house at all.

Because of her disability, Frida must be placed in family with NO SMALL CHILDREN.

Frida is being fostered in the Coachella Valley area of Riverside County, CA.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Crystal at cnratliff@gmail.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
