Meet Nico, a resilient and affectionate foster dog ready to find his forever home! Despite his past hardships, Nico's gentle nature and love for cuddles shine through. He's a sweet dog who adores snuggling up with his humans and is eager to start a new chapter filled with love and happiness.

Nico enjoys short walks, taking in the sights and smells at his own pace. He's a natural on the leash and finds joy in these simple outings. Nico's charming derpy expression never fails to bring a smile to anyone's face. His lopsided grin and quirky facial expressions add to his unique charm, making him a one-of-a-kind furry companion who will melt your heart with just one look.

Nico gets along well with other dogs, displaying a friendly and gentle demeanor. He's made significant progress overcoming his past, thanks to the dedicated care of his foster family and training support from APA. He's housetrained and can be left to roam freely in the house when alone.

Nico would thrive in a calm, quiet home without young children, where he can continue to build his confidence. With patience, love, and time, Nico will become an inseparable part of your life, offering endless snuggles and unconditional love.

If you're ready to open your heart to Nico, prepare for a journey of healing, happiness, and countless beautiful memories. Adopt Nico and give him the second chance he deserves.
