Kids, cats, dogs…Bring them on…..Nikko is cool with them and would love for them to be part of his life again. Nikko was born and raised at home and unfortunately relinquished into our care as his landlord did not allow dogs anymore…He is friendly, affectionate and playful, house and wee wee pads trained as well as crate trained. He was pretty shy when he first came in, not expecting this sudden change in his life. Nikko indeed has been beautifully cared for and is an adorable mix of a Bassett Hound and a Pittie…He is healthy looking, the perfect weight and wears a well-groomed red golden and white coat. Although still a little timid at times and seeking refuge in his caretaker’s arms, Nikko has come out of his shell. He enjoys particularly his time in playgroups with other dogs. I think he would play a whole day in the yard if he could…Nikko walks well on the leash, doing his business on the way. He knows the command sit and stay and does come at the call of his name. He enjoys treats and does not grab them from my hand. He is not mouthy nor a leash biter. Nikko aced is behavioral evaluation. He is a very a young boy at ten months of age and is really adorable.. I love his Labbish ears that sometimes look like rose petals….Have I said enough? do you think that Nikko could be a great match for your family? Come and see for yourself….Hopefully you will walk soon away with your new forever best friend..
