Age: 8 years
Handsome Niko has been living with his foster mom for the past few months since coming into rescue after his human passed away. He is crate trained and always lets foster mom know when he needs to go out. Niko is shy with humans, seeming to be more comfortable with women, but could probably develop trust in men too. (We’ve seen this positive development happen with other MaPaw pups.) Foster mom noticed that his eyes are a little crossed, which she says only adds to his cuteness.
Niko is a timid boy overall, and tends to bark and run for cover when he hears sounds like the washing machine running, or the central air conditioning unit when it’s on and he’s out in the yard. Niko would be best in a quieter home without a lot of fast moving activity or small children, and he would likely be happiest as an only dog because he’s not too crazy about other dogs, male dogs in particular. A backyard enclosed with a fence that’s at least 5 feet high would be best for him.
Niko is a special boy who’s looking for a loving forever home with a special human who has a gentle touch, someone who will continue working with him as he learns to love his new life with you.
