Saint Nicholas's story:
Saint Nicholas and his nine brothers and sisters were born at our rescue in the late hours of December 23 and the early morning of December 24 of 2015. They were our Christmas litter, so they all got holiday names! St. Nick was the eighth puppy born.
All of the puppies found good loving homes. Nick went home with his brother Polar. Nick and Polar started to have some sibling issues which developed into full blown littermate syndrome. Littermate syndrome can develop when puppies of the same litter are homed together and they become codependent or compete with each other. Their owners were trying to manage the behaviors but ultimately had to separate the pups when they got into a more serious scuffle.
Nick is sweet and playful. He has been good with all other dogs with the exception of his brother. Nick is good with humans of all ages but because he is a big puppy, a home with children over the age of six would be a better fit for him.
Nick is also deaf. His previous owners had been teaching him some signs that we are using at the shelter. His hearing impairment doesn't seem to affect him too much but his owners will need to be aware and learn how to interact with him.
