Niko, June 23rd Pet of the Week

Niko is a little bit of this, a little bit of that—a touch of Rottweiler maybe, a scoop of shepherd, a couple of pinches of Australian kelpie—and a whole lot of personality! His name means “victory of the people,” but Niko needs and deserves some canine victory. He’s a longtime resident of our shelter, and the shelter is way over capacity. Volunteers and staff are actively seeking foster, adoption or rescue placement, and it shouldn’t be difficult if you can provide structure and exercise and can patiently wait for that bond to develoo. Niko’s only 4 years old, has medium energy, is very smart, and is treat motivated. He’s easy to walk on leash and knows several commands—he has the greatest high-five ever! Come meet Niko—shelter hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 7700 E. Spring St. at the entrance to El Dorado Park (no parking fee for shelter visitors). You can email PetAdopt@longbeach.gov to speed the process for adopting Niko. Ask for ID#A605387.

(This rescue encouraged by the usual suspects.)
