November 2016: Nicole is a darling and beautiful girl who also has some special needs. She is 4 years old and 52 lbs. We think she is part Hound but don't know what else. She was returned to us because she was having trouble with the other dogs in the home. She worked with one of our trainers and we found that she is very shy at first but then once she warms up she is able to trust you and even show off her smarts, she likes the agility equipment! She met other dogs with us during the training session and did well. One of our volunteers recently spent some time with Nicole and she says she is an incredibly sweet, smart girl who is looking for structure and responds well to training. We will provide some training support to her foster or adoptive family. She is good with older children but we don't have info about cats or very young kids.

Right now Nicole is with our friends at White Mountain College for Pets having some confidence building and assessment of what type of home would work best for her. Mike, the trainer who is working with Nicole, tells us, “She is SOO sweet. I think she would do fine with kids. She could adapt to an active life, but from all that we’ve seen, she would be content to sleep on the couch all day. She get attached really fast, so a retired person would be perfect. Whoever gets her is going to be a lucky person.”

Nicole has a seizure disorder which is well-controlled with medication. She had Lyme disease as a young girl; she takes a joint supplement to help her keep any arthritic symptoms at bay.

Nicole is looking for a new home with patient owners who will help her with leash walking and building trust. She could live with another confident dog with good management or could be an "only child". We think Nicole would be happiest where she is the only pet and she can relax and be loved!
