Nexus has perfected the art of puppy dog eyes that will have you saying, "Here, you can have all the treats you want, sweet baby," in no time. They are the most beautiful eyes you'll ever see...deep, soulful, poetic eyes. When you add in his slightly pouty mouth, you will want to take him home and give him anything he wants.
Nexus is a great walking or running buddy and enjoys the trail. He's a quick learner and picks up on the behaviors that will earn him rewards, so he should make a fun and easy training student. He is also playful and friendly with other dogs and could go home with a doggie sibling, but it's always best to do a meet and greet.
Nexus just has one of those personalities that wins you over pretty quickly. He can be a little shy and stressed in his kennel, but is sweet and quiet once you get him out to play. He also makes excellent eye contact with his human, so attentively gazing up at you that you start wondering what he must be thinking. He's a sensitive soul who is easy to love! Can you tell we're smitten with him? It's those eyes...
