Thank you for your interest in a rescued dog.  Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today.  We'll update as more information is known. 

We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture.  While we like to know what you like in looks, a dog is more than a pretty face.  Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home.  We want to create furever families. 

Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days?  If so please visit our webpage at and complete the application.  You'll find it in the menu on the left hand side.  You'll also find a total listing of all our dogs available.

Fence needed? Yes

What kind of home would be best for me? Energetic home that enjoys being outdoors.

What is my personality like?  Nikki is your average happy-go-lucky gal along with her lab personality. She loves to chew on tennis balls, and thoroughly enjoys playing. She is energetic but she also knows when to be quiet and calm. Nikki would do best in a home that could give her attention and play dates outdoors!  Although she is friendly she is still scared and timid in new situations. As long as you are patient while trying not to overwhelm her she warms up just fine. She is learning how to sit and is doing exceptionally well. She does tend to jump fences so she may need a high fence to prevent her from jumping. We believe she just wants to be by our side all of the time.

How I act when I first meet new people: Timid but can warm up to the right person.

House trained?  Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours.  We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

My age:  Estimated 1 year old, est birthdate 9/12/2015

Please note - we do not ship dogs.  If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip.

To apply, please visit our webpage at and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application.

Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home.   You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc.  Others here may be a better fit for you.  It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description.  Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a  dog not in our listings yet.  We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.
