The name Niccolo is of Italian origin meaning victorious; conqueror of the people. Give this handsome boy a chance and he will conquer your heart! Say hello to Niccolo, a scruffy and happy-go-lucky Yellow Labrador Retriever/Wheaten Terrier mix. Rescued from a high kill shelter in San Bernardino County, Niccolo made fast friends at TBL of both the two and four legged variety. He is in a large play group of pups of varying sizes, and he is fantastic at following directions. Niccolo is incredibly smart, engaging, attentive, and he knows how to sit, lay down, and shake paws on command. True to his terrier roots, he is a very intelligent boy who will be quick to pick up more tricks. Niccolo is currently enjoying the life of a foster home, and he is a stellar houseguest. He is crate trained, completely housebroken, and knows to paw at the back door to use the facilities, or at his leash to go on a walk. He would do well with a patient leader who can give him a little time to build up trust gradually and organically at the very beginning, and Niccolo will return the favor with an effortless lifelong companionship. Niccolo turns 4 years old August 2017, and he is a great medium size of 50 pounds. If you are looking for a sweet, smart, mellow, non-destructive, polite and engaging pup, Niccolo may just be the one for you!
