He has suffered with painful ear infections and does not like to have his ears cleaned and treated but we are working on getting that fixed and getting him to trust that we are helping him and that ear cleaning is a good thing. He was previously eating a very low grade kibble full of dyes and corn and I believe that added to or was the cause of these ear infections. We have him on a really good food now and have already seen an improvement in his coat and his ears.
Niko would love to have a home of his own again with a fenced in yard. He gets excited on leash so we're working on that, too. We'd love to see him in a home with another large dog for company and with someone that is home a lot.
If you would like to meet Niko, call Barbara at 570-579-8172 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
