Meet Nicholas, an 8 year-old Newfoundland mix who’s one big softie. This sweet dog has had several homes over the years and through no fault of his own is now looking for what he hopes to be his true forever home. In spite of his age, Nicholas acts like a giant puppy who’s silly, playful, and very affectionate. He LOVES toys and can keep himself entertained throwing them around. He doesn’t really like to share his things with other dogs so we are looking for a home for him where he will be the only dog. He does fine meeting other dogs on walks though and has been friendly when meetings dogs of all sizes. Nicholas is also very friendly with his human friends and forms strong attachments very quickly. As far as people go, he’s truly never met a stranger. Nicholas loves to go for a walk which is a good thing as he needs to shed a few pounds to get into perfect shape for summer fun. He has excellent crate manners but would much prefer not being crated. He has not had any accidents in his foster home so should pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. A home with a nice yard with an aboveground fence would be perfect so that Nicholas could sunbathe on the patio after coming back from a walk. Nicholas also enjoys riding in the car. He weighs about 110 pounds currently but needs to lose about 10-15 pounds to be at his ideal weight. His adoption fee is $150. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Nicholas. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age.
