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.
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 www.savinggreatanimals.org and fill out an application. We look at the first applications to arrive, so we hope to hear from you soon!
