Facts about Nico

  • Breed: Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier
  • Color: Gray/Blue/Silver/Salt & Pepper
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10778140

Nico is approximately 9-10 years old and weighs 8 pounds. He was found as a stray and brought to a high kill animal shelter. No owner claimed him so we rescued him. His blood work shows he's in good health. He had a dental cleaning and did lose some teeth, but it doesn't bother him at all and he eats just fine.  Nico is a little hard of hearing although it does not impact his life in any way. Nico has a fun, happy and loving disposition. He would make a great companion and he gets along with other dogs.

If you can provide a loving home and are interested in meeting Nico, please first fill out the online adoption application at www.greatpets.org. If you have any questions you can email info@greatpets.org. Nico's $100 adoption donation covers his vet exam, neuter, vaccinations, blood work, dental cleaning, flea treatment and microchip.

About New Beginnings for Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a no-kill rescue group in Southern California. Our primary focus is rescuing animals off of death row and local high-kill shelters before they are to be euthanized. We then either board them or place them in foster homes so we can better assess their personalities before placing them in loving homes. All our animals are examined by our veterinarians, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, FELV/FIV tested if they are cats, flea treated and dewormed if needed.

Our Adoption Process...

All interested parties are required to fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire. This helps us in placing the right animal in the right home. Our goal is to place our rescued animals in the right new forever home. Most of these animals have been thru so much and we want to make their transition into their new homes goes as smoothly as possible. Please visit our website www.greatpets.org for more information or our calander of adoption events for our dogs and where you can come to visit our wonderful kitties.
