Facts about Nikki

  • Color: White
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Meet Nikki! This sweet, petite girl was saved a few hours before she was sentenced to die at a high-kill shelter. When you look into Nikki's face you can see why we didn't want that to happen to her. She came into the shelter as a stray as a possible hit by a car. Thankfully, there were no long term or serious injuries. Our veterinarian states that her pelvis was fractured but it's healed now and it doesn't affect her mobility. She's a loving, happy girl with lots of cute personality that will bring a smile to your face. She was rather emaciated when she first arrived into foster care with us but she's putting on weight and currently weighs about 34 pounds. Her ideal weight will be around 40 pounds. She's only 7 to 8 months old, so she's got a little more growing to do. Nikki lives with a foster family that has three other dogs for her to pal around with. Nikki will be happier in a home with other dog/s to keep her company since she's not into being alone. Nikki's ideal family will have the time to spend with her, appreciate her loving personality and will reciprocate. She loves activity but she's not hyper. This girl is into laying her head into your lap while you watch your favorite program on TV. Even though she's not high energy or hyper, she certainly does crave a nice, fenced backyard to run and exercise in. Her talents are walking nicely on a leash. Her passion is giving lots of love. Her obsession is companionship -- giving it and receiving it. Her favorite activity is playing with her foster canine brothers and sisters. She is crate trained, house trained and highly trainable. She is good with adults and children. She is private foster care so anyone wanting to arrange a meet-and-greet will need to fill out an application to adopt. We use this as a screening tool to protect our foster families. To make arrangements to visit her, please fill out an application to adopt at our website: - select the Adopt! tab.


Nikki is spayed, de-wormed, vaccinated including rabies, and micro-chipped. She is house trained, crate trained, she knows a few basic obedience terms. If you are interested in Nikki please contact the adoption coordinator at Texas Animal Guardians at You can also text her at (512) 557-2286. Please do not phone - just text - but don't contact her if you have not already submitted your interest via an e-mail. For more information, please visit our website at: and go to the Adopt tab to read our adoption procedure. If the description states the puppy or dog is in private foster care, please fill out the application to adopt form. This is required to pre-screen all applicants. We want to protect our foster families. Thank you for understanding.

About Texas Animal Guardians

About Our Rescue Group...

Texas Animal Guardians Bringing People and Pets Together! We're an all-volunteer foster-based organization geared to reducing the suffering and certain death of shelter animals. We remove "at risk" dogs, puppies, cats and kittens from over-crowded shelters, take responsibility for their medical care, provide foster homes and adopt them out to responsible, loving pet parents.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility. However, we make arrangements for potential adopters to meet their future pets at the home of the foster parents. We also have regular adoption days at the Creekside Petsmart in New Braunfels, Texas (315 Creekside Way). We are there on the FIRST & THIRD Saturday of the month from 1-4 PM. If you are interested in meeting one of our available pets please call the foster of the pet you are inquiring about or email us at so that we can help you make arrangements to see the pet you'd like to meet.

We ask that you fill out our adoption application, then one of our volunteers will contact you and arrange for you to meet the adoptable pet.
