Nikito is such a social butterfly. This sweet, affectionate boy loves being with people. Come meet him and he'll run right up to you for petting, cuddles and belly rubs. In return, he'll give you kisses. He is very happy to make new human friends and is full of love to give them!

Now in foster care, this energetic boy is so fun to play with. Toss him a toy and he'll bring it right back, nudging you with it to play tug-o-war for several rounds. And then he hopes you'll play fetch, or he'll just go off to play with his stuffed toys. Once he tires out, he'll want to cuddle on the couch.

He can be curious and bouncy when he's excited to play with his people, but is easy to correct and calms down. A very smart boy, he's a quick learner and already understands "sit and "down. And he comes when called (because he loves being near his people). He is a well-behaved house-trained boy and will follow treats into his crate, calming down and doing well overnight and when he's home alone.

Nikito will love active parents who can be his playmates and take him on long walks. He'll also love it if they work from home and he can snooze next to them. He'll like a home with a fenced backyard to do zoomies and play fetch in. And he should enjoy a well-matched dog buddy. With his bouncy energy, he should do well with older kids. Come meet him. He'll be so excited to see you!
