Niko, Sept. 8th Pet of the Week

Take a cup of German shepherd, a scoop of rottweiler, a pinch or two of maybe some Australian kelpie and a whole lotta personality. Put ‘em together and whaddya got? Niko! Niko’s a bibbidy-boppidy-bootiful beautiful 4-year-old fellow who’s inexplicably been at our shelter for a year. He’s a smart, good boy with medium energy, is treat motivated, and is easy to walk on his leash. His new owner will need patience since it may take Niko a while to develop a bond, but with regular exercise, structure and balance, he’ll be the best boy you could want. Niko means “victory of the people” in Finnish, but he hasn’t had a victorious finish yet. Can you help him live up to his name? You can speed the process to adopt or foster Niko and any of our other pets by emailing PetAdopt@longbeach.gov or petfoster@longbeach.gov. You can also call (562) 570-4925. Even better, stop by during our new open walk-in hours every Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Our shelter is located at 7700 E. Spring St. Ask for ID#A605387 to meet Niko. We’re at capacity, and everyone needs homes!
