Nicki is a terrier mix female about 3 years old. I've become her pen pal. That means I know her well and I am promoting her so the right family will adopt her. She just had a litter of pups and was found as a stray on the street. I changed her name to Nicki because this girl is so pensive and quiet. She just loves to smell the air and sit outside and sit on your lap. There's nothing hyper at all about this young-ish girl. She doesn't even go after the treats I bring in. I gave her a bath today and she just stands there in the tub and enjoys the warm water. I split up one can of wet dog food into three paper plates. When Nicki is finished with one plate, I take it away and Nicki just stands and watches me (my fingers are touching her nose when I do this) and she just lets me take the plate away. Then I put the next plate of food in front of her and she eats that. We repeat the same process three times. Nicki just waits quietly for the next plate. I believe that Nicki would love the company of another dog and/or children. I believe she would be very gentle with a cat (but she'd have to be formerly tested for this quality to be sure.) Nicki is currently recovering from having had puppies and she's getting over having had some "bad hair days". But who wouldn't having gone through all of this in recent days? I believe that she is otherwise completely healthy.
If you'd like hear more about Nicki, feel free to call me. The shelter is quite full and she needs to be fostered or adopted quickly. You can visit Nicki at ACCT Philly. My name is Boe and you can reach me at 215-531-3167 to learn more about Nicki.
