A volunteer writes: Meet Nanna – the Holstein dog with the softest personality! She is usually quietly curled up in her bed, as if she doesn’t expect anyone to notice her, but is more than happy to come out for a walk. She can seem a little shy and timid at first, but quickly warms up to be most affectionate. I first saw her with another volunteer, who was kneeling down and calling her over. After a little hesitation, she approached with a low waggy tail, accepted pets and treats, and then let her guard down – draping both paws over his shoulders and thoroughly licking his face! When they resumed their walk she had a playful bounce to her step, and kept looking up at him – as if in awe of his company. When I have her off leash she always stays nearby. Sometimes play bowing my way, but mostly toppling over for belly rubs! I can barely get a few pets in before Nanna is on her back. She stays that way even after I’ve stopped, and before she gets up she does some very cute rolling and stretching. One day she came up a bit muddy, but was most cooperative when I hosed her off. To boot, Nanna is very attentive, has great leash manners, knows “sit,” and seems housebroken. Nanna is sweeter than words can say – please come meet her yourself at Brooklyn ACC!
