Meet Nitro! If you're looking for a playful, active, mischievous, cuddly dog, Nitro's the best furry friend for you!

Nitro is house trained and is happy to report back limited accidents, and he's very good at becoming friends with other dogs. Nitro is the perfect walking buddy-he rarely pulls, barks, or does anything other than explore. If you have a chew stick, Nitro will walk right up to you and cuddle you in an attempt to bribe you for it!

Nitro also has some of the best zoomies his foster's have ever seen. He loves doing figure eights through their backyard at top speed. Nitro would definitely do best in a more active home, he is very energetic and needs multiple walks a day and really enjoys his weekly hikes.

He thrives on consistency and would do best with someone who has a set schedule so that he knows exactly how his day will go. Take Nitro home today!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!

Come meet your new best friend
