Nina has been in and out of Rescue since 2007. At 5 years old, she was originally surrendered to Maryland Westie Rescue along with several other dwarf-Westies from a puppy mill that was trying to breed tiny-Westies. After I fostered her for a couple of months, was adopted by a family who loved and pampered her as a Diva. As the recession hit in 2010, we started receiving Westies into rescue from families who lost their homes or could no longer afford to keep their dog. Nina tore her knee ligament in 2010 that needed immediate attention but her family had just lost their home and could not afford the medical costs. Westie-people look out for each other. Through the generosity of Maryland Westie Rescue’s founding President, she personally funded all of the medical expenses so that Nina could have the corrective surgery to repair the damage. Realizing that they could no longer afford the future vet bills, the loving Westie family released Nina back to Maryland Westie Rescue. Because of her age and because I had fostered Nina off and on since 2007, I officially adopted her in 2012 so that she could enjoy her senior years in the lap of luxury.
Nina loves to roll in the freshly cut grass. When she is not romping in the back yard chasing bugs, she lounges in her favorite plaid bed like a Diva.
