Nike is a lady, reserved and elegant in her manicured auburn and cream coat. She carries herself on long legs dressed delicately with white boots.We were told that she is a cross between a Pittie and a Lab and lived all her life with the same family, many children of all ages , few other large dogs and …a cat. She was playful, affectionate and friendly with all as well as with any visitor. Nike is described as a wonderful family dog her loved ones had to part from as they were evicted. Her lovely housemate Daisy with whom she slept at night is with us too… Nike is clearly not herself here at the care center. She is shy and even trembles a little. She is such a good girl, though and does all what is asked from her . She meets other dogs with a low tail. A barely perceptible wag can be seen. She is timid in playgroups. The beautiful open flower she was in her former home has brought her petals together and is waiting for that special kiss..yours, to open up again and receive and give love…Nike walks beautifully on the leash, she does her business in the curb. Free in a pen, she comes when I call her, sits on command and is not interested in any treat. After a while spent together, she poses her head in my lap and accepts my caresses. Nike can be found in our adoption quarters. See beyond the timid gal, discover the gem she truly is, well mannered, sociable, loving, welcoming of all and lively…She is the companion you always dreamed of…A golden girl. Nike is at the Manhattan Care Center, so wishing to belong again.
Nike A1062486 is an APBT / Lab mix. She’s about 6 year old. Her family got her from a family member 6 years ago. They had to surrender her and their Daisy A1062405 because they were evicted and are moving to a home that doesn’t allow pets.
Nike is friendly/outgoing with strangers. There were always small children in her home ages 0-10 and Nike is relaxed, playful, and tolerant with them. She plays exuberantly with adults and children. She’s relaxed, playful, and tolerant and plays exuberantly with the other large dogs in her home-both male and female-as well as dogs she meets outside. She lived with a cat and was relaxed and playful with him. Nike has never bit anyone.
Nike doesn’t mind storms. She doesn’t mind when someone takes her food/treat/toy, moves her off furniture, holds/restrains her, wakes her up, or brushes her. She’s nervous but tolerant during baths. She’s friendly with strangers who approach her home/family.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Nike’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, and high energy. She follows them around. She likes chew toys and plays chase, fetch, and tug. She lived inside and slept on a dog bed with Daisy. She ate dry Pedigree food. She’s house trained and potties anywhere outside, but sometimes gets distracted on walks. Her owner needs to make sure she’s gone potty when she’s outside or she’ll have an accident (#1) by the door later while she’s inside. She’s otherwise well-behaved while she’s home alone. She was crate trained when she was a puppy but doesn’t need to be. She goes for brisk and pulls on her leash. Off-leash, she wanders but comes when called.
Nike had a soft, relaxed body during intake and handling-scan (-), collar, petting, positioning for pictures, and putting in a kennel. She approached us and sniffed us with a wagging tail and often had an open mouth. She sat when asked and took treats very gently. She didn’t pull on her leash, but she walked around and sniffed things around the shelter. She was easily encouraged into a kennel on her own and ate her food right away. She was quiet in her kennel.
