Nova - 9 Year Old Male
In Foster Care

Foster Update, April 6, 2019

Nova loves all people that he meets (big and small). He has settled into my house seamlessly. Our resident grouchy dog Charles has even taken to him. Like all of our male foster dogs Nova has formed an attachment to Kitty ( she pretends she doesn't like Nova but we know she does).

He likes to have long periods of napping and has an amazing internal clock that tells him when it's 7:30 twice per day for his feeding and insulin times. He always eats well and takes his insulin like a champ. He spends most of his time upstairs and when he feels that he would like company he wails at the top of the stairs for us to either come upstairs and pay attention to him or carry him down to go outside, get him some water and cuddle on the couch. He is a very well behaved boy with only one exception......he lives to shred toilet paper (we are working on that).

Nova had his first insulin curve with us mid-February and his second today. The vet will call tomorrow with the interpretation of the results. I had a fast look tonight and his numbers have gone down from before so I think an another adjustment will be made.

He is a little character who with a little extra effort would fit in just about anywhere.



Introduction, February 20, 2019

Nova is a super sweet 9-year-old puggle with a tongue that goes on for days. He has settled in at his foster home quite quickly because he's a go-with-the-flow kind of guy. As long as he has a human to snuggle and his favourite toys, he's perfectly content. When foster mom goes to work, he naps and plays in his own quarters with no evidence of any anxiety. Nova has a hard time seeing so he is prone to bumping in to walls and other fur siblings but is quickly learning to navigate his way around. He has had no accidents indoors to date. This happy, cuddly boy has been a complete joy! More updates to come as we get to know this little man.
