A volunteer writes: Sometimes Niki barks steadily from her cage and sometimes when we turn the corner to come back to the shelter she tries to cross the street. You see, there''s been a mistake: Niki doesn''t belong here! She is a gal that was gentle and respectful with a toddler, is used to being around other dogs at the park, liked to follow her owner around the house, and would sit by the door when she needed to go out. Now she sits by her cage door. But the upside of Niki being in this place where she doesn''t belong is I get to hang out with her! She might be a little reserved at first, but Niki is incredibly sweet. She is super easy on leash and seems housebroken. She is said to like to play with toys and rocks and is crazy for tennis balls! She loves to play fetch and likes to chomp on the ball until she''s ready for me to throw it again (she lets me know by dropping it on the bench and pushing it my way with her nose). When I sit down on the ground she immediately comes over and starts gently licking my face....sweet, sweet, sweet!! She has eyes like a raccoon, the cutest chubby physique and seems to have an ideal middle-aged energy level. Niki is such a star she''s been used to help integrate new dogs into our playgroups and to train new volunteers! Maybe she belongs at your house?! Please come give her a chance a Brooklyn ACC!
