About Me: Hi Everybody! My name is Niko and I am 7 months old. I don't really remember my life before I was rescued by hart 'cause I was just 6 weeks old. They say I was really malnourished and dehydrated when they found me. Ever since then, I have been eating and growing lots and lots. I am almost a big boy now! I am very healthy and have already had a lot of my shots. I just need one more which is good 'cause they hurt a bit. Everyday I am learning new things and right now I can go to the door when I need to do my business, but you gotta be quick or I might have an accident in the house and nobody wants that! I really love being in my kennel cause it's warm and makes me feel safe, but I need to get out for a quick pee break after about 6 hours. I know that soon I will be able to spend the whole night in there!! That will be so nice! Also, I love to cuddle on the couch with big people or sometimes even the cat when nobody else is free. I haven't met any small people yet so I don't know if I would like them or not. Do they cuddle?? Anyways, I also love to play with my toys too. Toys are so much fun! I am looking for a furever family to teach me everything else I need to know about being a good boy, so I will need lots of love and patience from them evey single day. If you would like to cuddle with me and play with my toys with me, then I would really like to meet you!!

Health Notes:  This little fella doesn't remember his life before rescue and for that we are happy. Niko and his litter were rescued by a field volunteer at 6 weeks old, having been separated from their mother. In Niko's case, we were very worried as he was almost unresponsive when rescued and quite a bit smaller than the rest of his litter. With a full examination by our vet partners, we discovered that aside from being dehydrated and somewhat starved, there was nothing wrong with Niko. With lots of love, care and calories, he is the spunky puppy he was always meant to be. And he has just about caught up in size to his siblings!! Niko is up to date with DACPP, Bordatella and is neutered and microchipped. As he is not yet old enough to receive his Rabies vaccination, if he is adopted prior to that age, that vaccination will become the responsibility of the adoptive parent. 

Behavior Notes:  No behavior concerns at this time. He's a snuggler and loves to cuddle.

Think you have found your furever friend?
