About Nikkie

Adoption Fee: $560

Nikkie is a 1.5 year old  female, german shepard mix, she is on the larger size. Nikkie is good with kids, and other dogs she is sweet and affectionate. She is crate trained, house broken, and knows some of her commands. She is very excited to meet her new family! She was abandoned by her previous owners, and was wandering the streets for some time, she was found as a stray and brought to animal contril and placed on a stray hold, Paws Rescue League pulled her the day before she was euthanized. Nikkie was so happy to break out of the shelter and get to her TN foster home! She is now in New England and can not wait to find her new family!

Nikki is very good with cats, she doesnt mind them whatsoever. She would do perfect in a home with a cat(s). She likes to say hi at the initial meeting with them, but after that she just walks passed them!  She is good with kids of all ages, we suggest children 4 and up only because of her size (medium - large dog). She is good with other dogs, loves to play with them outside, in the yard or at a park, but she would be happiest if she could live in a single dog household! She wants all your attention and affection, and doesnt want to share. She can also be nervous that she will be left again, which we can understand given her history.  

She is spayed and UTD on all her required vaccines, and monthly preventatives. She is an absolute sweetheart and deserves to find a family who will love her!

Life hasnt been easy for E.Cooper .. (He goes by Cooper). He had an owner once, but for years Cooper struggled with fur and skin issues, and the owner didnt know what to do to help him. Not being able to afford testing and treatment the owner dropped him off at a shelter and surrendered him. The shelter had E.Cooper see a vet, and he stayed with the vet for over a month, the vet put him on steroids, and antibiotics, as E.Cooper was in bad shape, missing lots of fur and very itchy. He went through a few roaunds of antibiotics, medicated baths and testing to find out the cause of E.Coopers skin irritation. It was determined that E.Cooper was allergic to protien, and needs a special diet. He can only eat hydrolized food. E.Cooper was placed in the shelter, for adooption. Unfortunately for E.Cooper no one came to adopt him. The cost of the food was just too much for anyone in the small community to afford. The shelter was at a loss, they know E.Cooper is a super sweet boy and deserved to live. The reached out to Paws Rescue League and asked if we could help. E.Cooper has a much better chance at finding a loving home who can care for him up North...   E.Cooper, is a sweet, gentle guy! He is estimated to be 4.9 years young, and looks to be a border collie, aussie shepard mix. His foster says he is an absolute delight, extremely well behaved, potty trained, crate trained, but will sleep on a dog bed all night too! He likes other dogs, and he enjoys spending time with people, he was also good with the children he met. He is a little stand off ish of older men, like his owner who took him to the shelter. He isnt reactive, he just gets a little scared, and will move away with a grumble.    The vet in TN told the shelter that the only safe treat "cookie" for E.Cooper to eat, was MARSHMALLOWS...... We put a stop to that, not only do they hold absolutely no nutritional value, but they are loaded with sugar and cornsyrup which isnt good for any dog, and fat free marshmallows are TOXIC to dogs. E.Cooper, can safeley have watermellon, apple, or green beans, or carrotts for treats, Pumpkin as well!     E.Cooper would make a family, or a single person a wonderful companion! He has the rest of his life ahead of him to make up for the pain and suffering hes had in the past. show less
