No real special tricks.
Nick has had a very difficult start in life. He was rescued from a situation of severe neglect and abuse. Nick had been tied to the front porch of his home for about 7 years with little to no socialization. When he was rescued, the rope he was tied with was partially embedded into his neck. His fear of shoes and men indicated that he was kicked often. The small amount of contact that he had with people was not very pleasant. All of that has changed now.
Nick was rescued and transferred to Our Lady of Mercy's Catnip Cottage, where he has received sanctuary and will reside. Nick's emotional health and attitude has come a very long way since his first arrival here. Because of his temperament and bonding issues, Nicky is not available for adoption.
Nick is very good with other small dogs and cats, although he is still frightened of large dogs. He loves most animals, but is distrustful of strangers and needs a gradual, gentle introduction to new situations and places. Nicky bonds especially well with one special person. We are working with his socialization and manners, and he has come amazingly far in the stable pack of his foster home. Among his firsts after years of neglect and abuse, Nicky has gotten his first toys, which he dearly loves (especially small balls), has gotten his first tummy-rub, has received and given his first kisses. He is now able to be boarded at his vet when we leave overnight, is able to receive veterinary treatment and gets groomed. After living his life at the end of a rope tied up outside, neglected and abused, now he loves being an indoor dog. Nick now loves his toys and soft bed. Nick has good manners inside the home. We are continuing to work on his trust issues. Nicky is not available for adoption. He is a permanent sanctuary pet at the Catnip Cottage. He has not done well in the past when adopted out of the sanctuary of his current home.
I love WALKIES!!!
