As a 1 year old Catahoula mix, he’s got loads of energy and is already prone to be protective of his people and skeptical of strangers. Yes, he’s super mouthy and rude, but we can tell that someone was obviously quite cruel to him early on in his life; that is evident when you move objects by him too fast or lift up your leg to untangle the leash and he cowers with his eyes closed, fully ready to be hit. ?
Some really kind people donated funds specifically for Nikko to work with a trainer. He’s currently doing sessions with an outside trainer here at the shelter twice a week, and they said he’s as smart and driven as any Malinois they’ve worked with. In training, he’s showing us how bright, adaptable, and capable he is.
He’s available to an adult-only home that is skilled, patient, and ready for the challenge and love he’ll bring them. His home will need people experienced with behavioral dogs and willing to continue his training long-term. We won’t be entertaining applicants who don’t have the experience or the commitment to take on this boy - we’re not budging on what Nikko needs to finally become an upstanding citizen and part of a family.
