URGENT!! NIKKI NEEDS REHOMING OR RESCUE ASAP in BAYONNE NJ
Nikki is an 8 year old neutered male who is up to date on vaccines, GREAT WITH KIDS (he lived with a 7, 10 and an 11 year old), PASSIVE AND FRIENDLY WITH PEOPLE - rolls on his back for belly rubs. No cats though because he is alpha and plays hard so preferably the only pet.
Nikki's story...he was rescued from a family 7 years ago because baby was allergic. His owner moved and signed a lease unaware that his dog's size was restricted. The dog is with a tenant elsewhere in a basement and kenneled. The owner is paying for the care of his dog but the landlord of tenant is threatening eviction because the dog barks.
Nikki has developed separation anxiety since last summer while he was boarded (first time family left him for vacation) and as the children got older and left the home. He is destructive due to his anxiety and has caused damage to himself (cuts on his paws)
Nikki's owner loves him and speaks highly of him. It's become too much financially (vet expense, dog walker, new kennels, etc). Being that he can't have the dog with him, he would like to find him a home, one with a stay at home person. He doesn't want to take him to a shelter because he knows they will destroy him.
It's been months that the owner has tried to find a home or rescue that could help him but he hasn't had any luck. If you can help this boy, please email email@example.com for more information. Thank you.
