I lived all my life in an outdoor breeder kennel, so I didn’t get much attention. One day a nice lady from Schnauzer Rescue came and took me (and my friend Joey) to her house! What a surprise! I was scared at first but I sure did like my new foster home.
There were toys, kids, kitties and other dogs there. It took me a few days to get used to being inside but after a few days I felt safe and started checking the place out.
My new foster mom says….NIKKI is very sweet and affectionate. If you lift her up on the sofa she will be your cuddle buddy for as long as you want! But she has some trust issues, and needs a lot of patience and encouragement at first.
Everything most dogs do is scary to her - Even going in and out the door to the backyard – but she adapts quickly and before you know it she will put her trust in you. She is potty trained and crate trained. She will drag a leash around with no problem, but she needs some encouragement walking with it.
She does very well with the other dogs in the house, and barks at the cats but never bothers them. She loves to play with the resident dogs, and she will empty the toy box as often as you allow her to! She loves her toys!! She would do well with older kids (7-10 years).
NIKKI is in a foster home in Indianapolis, Indiana. She is micro-chipped, spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations. She is heart worm negative and current on preventatives. Her adoption fee is $300.
Nikki does require a fenced yard.
If you are looking for a new fur kid send in an adoption application with Nikki’s name on it. You will be glad you did!
