Introducing Niko

Niko is a 4 yr old neutered male who was surrendered to us by his owners because they are moving and cannot take him with them. Niko is about 35lbs and has some allergies to pork, beef, and chicken. His foster family have described him as quiet dog who enjoys being pet and at times becomes playful.

He does not seem to have any aversion or aggression towards strangers and shows an interest in other dogs he passes on the street. We have not tested him to see if he is dog friendly or child friendly yet. He is housetrained and will bark to let you know that he needs to go outside. He also sometimes barks at loud noises.

Niko knows Sit and Come but doesn’t seem to know how to walk properly on a leash, his foster family is working with him on a few other commands and manners. He also has a tendency to chew shoes, but prefers rubber dog toys. So far he’s been adjusting well with his new foster home and has been a good boy. He likes car rides and also plays fetch.

From first impressions, it would be best if Niko was in a home with older children and had someone who would be able to exercise him regularly as he does seem to have a lot of energy and likes to go for long walks.
