Nicki is such a good momma! Now in foster care with her seven puppies, she's protecting and nursing them. And she's so curious and interested in her new surroundings - and her new people. She follows her foster mom around the house and climbs up on the couch to sit by her while watching TV. And if she thinks mom gives her puppies too much more attention than she gets, she'll nudge her hand for petting. She's a very shy girl when first meeting people, but when her foster assures her that they're nice and safe, she warms up to them.

This very sweet girl also enjoys going outdoors to walk and explore, sniffing at everything. Leash walking is new to her and she'll walk on the right, then on the left, then in the back, but she is learning to improve. At home, she loves her treats and chewy bones. She's a smart girl who's learning what "sit" and "stay" mean, and she's working on her house-training, learning to go outside. And she does well while her foster is away, free roaming the house or gated in the kitchen with her babies.

This gentle, sensitive lady wants to move in with a family who is home most of the day, treats her very lovingly and continues working with her on leash walking and answering to their instructions. Come meet her. She'll be ready to move on from motherhood to new adventures soon!

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
