This stunning little girl was adopted from a local kill shelter and returned when she got sick. Luckily, a volunteer saw her coming in, pulled her from the shelter where she no doubt would have been euthanized and got her healthy. She is now healthy, happy beyond measure, and ready for her new life to begin.
Nikki is a roughly 5-month old Kelpie mix. She is currently around 30 pounds and we anticipate she will be a bigger girl, in the 60-pound range when she is fully grown. She is an ACTIVE girl, so she will be best placed in a family that is committed to getting her proper daily exercise and socialization. She would make a great running and adventuring buddy!
Nikki loves all things, she currently lives with other dogs and has met kitties with no reaction. She however does not currently live with cats, so any adopter with cats would need to commit to a slow and thoughtful introduction. She would make an excellent sibling for a home with another similarly active dog.
Nikki does not currently live with kids, but there is nothing in her demeanor that makes us believe she would not do well in a home with children who know how to be kind and respectful of animals. She loves sticks and mud, and would be her kids’ best friend.
Nikki is still young and working on her house training, but with a proper schedule and work she will be 100% in no time. She is kennel trained, but still needs to work a bit on her leash manners. Nothing uncommon for a puppy, but she is a young dog who will need patience as she grows.
Nikki’s ideal family will understand that she will take time and patience as she acclimates into her new life. She may have accidents, chew on things she is not supposed to, and bark in her kennel. It can take dogs a few weeks to properly acclimate to their new lives, so she is seeking a family that can give her this time and work with her on becoming an even more awesome dog than she already is.
Nikki should be adopted by a family who plans to keep her indoors as part of a family - we do not adopt dogs into situations in which they will be left outside for extended periods of time unattended (for example, the entire work day).
Nikki is fully vetted (spayed, microchipped, vaccinated) and has no health or allergy issues that we are currently aware of.
The first step in our adoption process is to fill out an application via our website which you can access via the following link: https://reggiesfriends.org/adoptables/
