Meet Nikita, a lovable and gentle soul seeking a forever home filled with patience, love, and understanding. Nikita is currently in foster care, where he shares his space with a few older children, getting along famously. His interactions with the little ones are described as good, showcasing his playful and affectionate nature.

This sweet pup is also living with cats and Nikita really wants to play with them too. Nikita's friendly disposition and love for everyone make him an ideal candidate for a family looking to adopt a furry friend.

Nikita's ideal day involves playfulness, bones, and, surprisingly, a dip in the pool. Nikita has discovered he loves walks, running around the house, and playing with his humans and other dogs! This smart pup has even learned to ring a bell to let his people know he needs to go outside.

This silly, loving, and gentle pup seeks a family that understands his initial shyness and can provide the reassurance and love he needs to fully blossom. Nikita, with his soulful eyes and heart of gold, is ready to become a cherished member of a forever home. If you're looking for a loyal companion, consider welcoming Nikita into your heart and home.

PUPPIES AND OTHER HIGHLY-ADOPTABLE DOGS DISCLAIMER:

Puppies and other highly-adoptable dogs (small dogs or desirable-breed dogs) at APA! are very high in demand and usually have several interested adopters. Inquiring about a dog, meeting a dog, and even applying for a dog does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt the dog. Only one household will be able to adopt each dog, which means all other interested households will inevitably and unfortunately be disappointed. Please consider this in your search and set your expectations accordingly. Please also consider that adult dogs do not typically have competing adopters, and they need furever homes, too! Additionally, APA! does not allow the adoption of dogs who are related (e.g., littermates or mom and pup) to the same household for behavioral reasons.
