Meet precious Nico! He has been rescued and groomed and now we can see the sweet shih tzu that he is!

Nico is a perfect lil guy looking for a home that will love him and that he can love back.  This sweet pea is blind in one eye but it doesn't stop him from still loving life and having fun. He loves to toss toys into the air and leapt about catching them.

Nico could use a very affectionate household so that he knows he matters. He wants to be part of a family pack and will take all the love you can give him. He will return it all in spades! He will settle right in.

Nico likes other dogs and enjoys playing, followed by a treat, and a snooze.  Sounds like a perfect day to us! We are not sure he's even seen a cat but given his personality we predict he will do fine.

He seems to have soreness in his front and back legs which we are checking on. Could be age although he is still super spry!  He can take walks, just not super long ones, just yet.

Nico is now updated on all shots, neutered and his adopt donation (often matched by companies so do check!) is $295.

Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.

We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$395.  Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

To expedite to meet with this dog, please go to our site at and fill out an application. We look at the first applications to arrive, so we hope to hear from you soon!

About Saving Great Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

Saving Great Animals is a match-making rescuer. We have no public facility. We work individually to do our best in matching your desires and lifestyle to the best animal pal. We love what we do! We are Seattle-based but have representatives in all parts of Washington state and the Pacific Northwest.

We are volunteer-based and everyone in our rescue works full time at paying careers,

Saving Great Animals has been working tirelessly as a no-kill, foster-based rescue for the last 9 years. We also are connected to a wide network of foster homes and numerous shelters around the state to find permanent homes for animals that are deserving of love and a family. Many of the dogs and cats we rescue would otherwise face unecessary euthanization.

We also work hard to bring dogs and cats into SGA directly from their former home so they animals will never enter the shelter system which has environments that can be very stressful for them, even though we know so many shelter workers who are tireless too in helping the animals.

A very small percentage of our dogs come to us from our sister-shelter in Taiwan, where these dogs are typically rescued from deplorable circumstances.

All of our pets available for foster or adoption also are listed on PetFinder at (

If you are interested in fostering or volunteering, we want to hear from you! We are finalizing our 501 C-3 status; and do appreciate any and all donations as 100% of our funds, every penny, goes to the animals. We are always extremely tight on funds, frequently dipping into our own pockets. All donations can be paid by paypal by sending to
