Photos don't do justice for the beautiful Nerra, the absolute sweetest girl! Around 2 years old, we think Nerra is a Lab and Shepherd mix. She is long-legged gal with big bear paws and the softest ears you've ever touched. When you pet her she likes to melt into you, and all she wants is to snuggle into your lap (her forever family needs to be ready for an extra large lap dog!). Her ears make her foster mom laugh- sometimes they are very "shepherd-y" and pin back against her head or move as if on a swivel to catch every sound, but when she's begging they become very Lab-y and become big and floppy! Nerra is friendly and playful with other dogs, and happily fostered with another black lab who she wishes would snuggle and play with her more often. Stuffed toys sometimes catch her attention, and she will sometimes throw them around with glee. She is quickly refining her leash manners and learning she doesn't have to pull ahead on walks, but she is SO curious and interested in all the things to sniff that sometimes she forgets her manners. She is eager to please and knows several basic commands already such as "sit" and "gimme your paw." She takes treats gently and is motivated by both food and praise.

Nerra is a love sponge, soaking up as much attention as she can get, and will nose under your arm for more pets- a family who will let her snuggle on the couch is a must! She likes to lean up against you and eagerly rolls over for belly rubs. The Shepherd traits in her come out in her protective nature of her home and her people, but once she knows you are in charge she will follow your lead. She will bark if someone is at the door, but otherwise ignores the sounds of neighbors in the hallway of her foster's condo building as well as the noise from the street, so she could be a good apartment or condo dog as long as you are committed to getting her enough playtime. Nerra loves most people she meets, especially if her foster dog brother greets them first, but sometimes needs a few minutes to warm up. Nerra hasn't been left home alone in her foster home very often, but is crated in an extra large crate when her foster leaves. She isn't the biggest fan of being home alone and is out of practice, but continued practice in this area will help her relax when her people leave. She is thriving with a consistent routine in her foster home, and would thrive with consistency in her forever home.
