Niko's Story...
Hello friends! My name is Niko and I’m a 5 year old Chinese Crested who is looking for a loving fur-ever home.

I am a handsome and loving fella. I’m still working on gaining some more weight as I'm a came into rescue a bit thin and I am looking for an adopter with excellent taste in hair styling, since my breed is pretty shnazzy. I’ve done well with potty training but I occasionally still mark in new environments, so I need a home where my adopter will be patient and take me outside frequently.

I enjoy spending my afternoons curled up at the very top of the sofa, or on the lap of a friend. I am a very shy and nervous fella and so I'm looking for a fur-ever home that is calm, quiet, and with a family who is home often. I’ve never met a cat, and I don’t really mind other dogs – so long as they aren’t hyper and pushy with me.

Because I’m slim and fragile, it would be best that I be in a home with children over 10 years old, or really, I’ve always wanted to be the favorite child! Do I sound like the dashing sort of fellow you’ve been looking for? You can apply to adopt me at

P.S. Here are the helpful steps in applying!

1.) Visit happy to adopt me. As an approved adopter, my rescue friends can set up a home visit so I can meet you, and whatever other pets you have in the home to make sure we all get along. Our rescue is 100% run by volunteers, to help your application be processed as quickly as possible, please make sure to do the next steps too. : )

2.) Call your veterinarian and give them permission to release info about your current and past pet’s veterinary history.

3.) Call your references too! Let them know to expect a phone call from an unknown phone number, and a rescue team member will need to talk to them on the phone as a reference.

My adoption fee is $250.00 and includes a DHPP vaccine, bordatella vaccine, de-worming, spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccine (age appropriate), heartworm test (age appropriate), heartworm preventative, flea/tick preventative, microchip insertion, bath, nail trim, ear cleaning, leash and collar and one week's worth of food. If you’d like to meet me, please apply online and to become an approved adopter!

Our adoption process requires that any pet in your household be current on vaccinations and heartworm preventative , spayed/neutered (unless a documented medical reason is on file with your vet). Dogs must be current on Distemper DHPP combo vaccine and Rabies vaccine, cats must be current on Distemper and Rabies at the time of application. This also applies to any pets in your home within the past five years.

While I hope that you have fallen in love with me and are ready to apply, I understand if I might not be the perfect pup for your family just yet. However, would you please help by sharing my picture on Facebook, twitter or by email? I'm a great pup and need a loving family to give all of my love and puppy kisses to! Thank-you for your help!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Niko, a Troy Chinese Crested dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chinese Crested for sale in Troy, or seeking a Chinese Crested dog from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Troy breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chinese Crested breeders who help with Chinese Crested rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
