About Nico

Nico is a 2 y/o red Doberman with cropped ears, left one flops over in the cutest way and a docked tail. He is a quick learner and very eager to please his human, he has picked up sit, lay down, side (while walking), we’re working on wait.  Nico loves going for jogs and hanging out in the backyard.  If you have a bird or squirrel problem Nico will take care of it.

Nico does well with other dogs, he is very interested in cats.  He is bird focused and for this reason I wouldn’t recommend a home with birds.  He hasn’t been around kids regularly since being in his foster home but doesn’t seem bothered by the neighborhood kids playing outside nearby.  He is a wonderful, gentle soul who craves to be loved and adored by his people. If you are looking for a sweet, gentle, affectionate and loyal boy…Nico is your guy! 

This Is My Story

He ended up at the shelter.
