Meet sweet boy Nico. Nico came to us due to his family moving and they could not take him with them. He’s a 1.5-year-old Lab/Heeler mix and about as loyal as they come.

Nico is FULL of energy. This guy needs an active home with people that will play with him and provide stimulating activities. Due to his energy level, Nico should not go to a home with children under the age of 8. His new home should be prepared to buy lots of toys because he is an avid chewer and loves to play with all types of toys. He does not do destructive chewing as long as he has a toy. He’s picked up a couple of items that he THOUGHT were toys, but hey it was soft and chewy and right at nose level!!

Nico is house-trained and crate trained. If he doesn’t want to go in his crate he will howl for a little bit, so for that reason, apartment living is probably not advisable. He gets along well with other dogs and will play. But he’s more interested in what his person is doing than really playing heavily with other pets. He does great at the dog park and is friendly with everyone. He’s not sure about car rides, but with more exposure to going fun places, we’re sure he’ll learn.

He doesn’t have much training under his belt, but he’s eager to please and a fast learner. Spend some time training with him and he’ll be an amazing and well-behaved companion. He’ll do anything for a bite of an apple!
