Update 5.28.15: More great news for our TV star, Nova! She has found a fabulous foster home and, in fact, went home this past weekend.
Cane Corso Rescue recently welcomed Nova into the family. Poor baby has been residing in a boarding kennel for a few weeks now, as we needed to ensure her life was spared. Nova is a 2 year old, female Cane Corso who has clearly been over-bred by her previous owner who had no remorse dumping her in a Ohio kill shelter when she was of no more use to him/her. Nova was extremely emaciated when she entered the shelter, so apparently the previous owner also neglected to be concerned with her need for proper nutrition. Nova was clearly used a puppy making machine. Yet through all this, she expresses no ill-will toward mankind and is eager to please and love anyone she encounters. Nova’s greatest enjoyment in life is to have her face rubbed. She is a calm, gentle gal who wants nothing more than to be with her people…she is much too precious to be sitting in a boarding kennel. You won’t be sorry you opened your home and heart to this precious gal. Nova came into the shelter with another male Corso so she has lived with at least one other dog. During her time at the shelter she was evaluated with another male dog unknown to her and has lived with another male dog of similar size. Nova passed her cat test.
