Niko is a gorgeous boy who is sweet and loving. He has lots of happy energy and he is ready to go on adventures with you! Niko would do well with a family who can keep up with his happy-go-lucky attitude and give him plenty of playtime and exercise, and also understands the unique qualities of a shepherd. Niko is enjoying the love and attention he is receiving in his foster home, he is a sweet boy and enjoys hanging out with his people. He is an easy going boy with the resident dog and they get along, though Niko doesn’t really seem to care about other dogs. He plays a bit rough at the dog park and he is better not going to them. This beauty knows some of his basic commands and he is okay on the leash but will be a pro in no time with a little consistent training. He enjoys going for runs and hiking with his people. He will sleep in his crate at night, but can be left home alone uncrated without getting into anything. Niko is treat motivated and that always helps with training. This sweetheart is house trained and uses a doggy door, he is also crate trained and will go in on command. Niko would be a great companion for an active family. Think you might be the one who could be Niko’s forever family? The first step in being approved to adopt is applying online at
