Nico has been adopted! 02-01-2020
Around 7-8 years old, Nico was purchased for a child and, when that child left for college, no one else wanted to care for him. He was made an outside dog and got little interaction with people or other dogs, until he was finally taken to the shelter.
We rescued this beautiful sable boy who adores toys, people, is fine around other large dogs, and is very smart and food and toy motivated. He knows his basic commands, is super quick to catch on to new things, and is going to make someone very happy when they add him to their family! While he's good with kids, he will resource guard toys (and needs to be monitored when around toys and other dogs), so he would do best in a home with older teenagers.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
