Nico is a 3 year old brown and white male, intact, pit bull.
According to the previous owner, Nico spent most of his time in the home. He rarely went out for walks, he spent a lot of time in the backyard off leash and on the deck, as well as in the home. Nico relieved himself in the backyard. Nico has lived with a male cat and a male Yorkie. He is respectful around the Yorkie and excitedly but gently plays with the cat most times.
Previous owners stated that Nico has a medium activity level that will sometimes have accidents inside the house when left alone. Nico enjoys playing with a ball and enjoys wrestling sometimes. The Yorkie Nico used to live with ate from the same bowl of dry food that he ate without any issues. Per the previous owner, Nico may benefit from some leash training as he pulls quite a bit on the leash.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW:
Nico is described as affectionate and sometimes follows you around the house when you are home, or may lay in one spot in the house. Nico knows commands such as: sit and come. When left alone in the house, Nico did not chew or attempt to eat any household items.
