Meet Nico

Nico is an adorable, good-natured boy who is new to the shelter. He seems to be friendly with children (we recommend ages 10+ just due to his size/strength), but needs to be the only dog at home. He still has energy for fun and play, but also knows how to settle down when it's time to relax and enjoys being a couch potato.

Nico has done okay on a cat test at the shelter and may be okay living with cats, with a proper slow-introduction where he is not allowed to chase the cat(s).

4/9/19: Nico recently went on an overnight with a staff member. He enjoyed some leisurely walks, played with some toys, and showed off his impressive snoring in the home :) He was not destructive at all, and had no accidents!

** From a volunteer 7/10/18: "Nico is such a handsome sweetie! He is a big boy with lots of love to share!"

Please feel free to call us at 240-773-5646, email us at adoptmcasac@montgomerycountymd.gov, or visit the shelter (7315 Muncaster Mill Rd. Derwood, MD 20855) asap if you are interested in this pet.

Shelter staff think Nico is about 9 years old.

***** PLEASE NOTE: Our adoption process can move quite quickly, and applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. You must visit the animal in person at the shelter before submitting an application (see visiting hours below).

Some animals, especially puppies/kittens and small dogs, can go very quickly. For this reason, we recommend that if you see an animal you are interested in, you come into the shelter *as soon as possible*.

Our busiest days are Saturdays and Sundays, and if you plan to come on one of those days we highly recommend that you arrive early (at noon or even a few minutes before) in order to minimize wait times and maximize your chances of being the first applicant on the pet you wish to adopt.

Please do not bring your current pets to the shelter. If you intend to adopt a dog and want the new dog and your current dog to meet, that can be scheduled with the help of your Adoption Counselor. Thank you! *****
