Nicholas was a shelter favorite where he came from. We only had room for one dog but there were so many urgents so we asked give us the sweetest dog you have and everyone there chose Nicholas. He is a sweet, friendly, handsome, smart, outgoing and very manageable dog. He is young so he is still very puppyish-clumsy, mouthy and very playful. He is currently 52.5 lbs, but I believe he will gain 10-15 lbs when full grown. He has not had any basic training however he does listen & does not run away. He responds to training well and is starting to sit on command. He does w hine in his crates, but settles after 15 min. He does o k on leash and does not pull. Nicholas is also g reat with other dogs and is submissive, but could be due to age. He is also f ine with cats-sometimes he is interested in them and sometimes he is not. He likes cheweys and likes to be near people. He will make himself comfortable in your lap. He was not house-broken when we first got him but w e are vigilant about putting him out and knowing where he is in the house. He has been doing great and h as not had an accident in weeks.
Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all dogs before adoption. AVID Microchips are implanted between the dog's shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the dog is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Dogs MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our dogs back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted dog.
The petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do o ur best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
Thank you for looking through our list of animals needing forever homes. We appreciate you stopping by.
