NICHOLAS ~5-6 years old. Good with older considerate kids and dogs. Not good with cats.
GSRA adopts to residents of VA, NC, and SC only
PLEASE NOTE: Nicholas is currently dealing with ear issues and under medical treatment. He will not be placed in a home until his issues are fully addressed.
Handsome Nick is 5-6 years old, heartworm negative, crate/house trained, loves to go places in the car and thinks cats are tasty! (Ie. NO CATS). Nicholas gets along with my big pack but has special rowdy playtime with my 3 yr old female sheppie! They run and play mouthy shepherd games. Nick walks nicely on leash. He LOVES to go for walks and prances (yes...he does!) around when I get his leash out!! Nick is older as we said and recently has had a hard turn in his life road. It's etched all over his body and spirit. Nicholas came to GSRA because he was shoved into a shelters' overnight dropoff box, (ok get this) on Christmas eve night!! Hence the name Nicholas. I can tell by being with Nick that at SOME point, he had a good owner that loved him. But not recently. He's had a rough time of it lately. He had both ears badly infected, was not neutered and was VERY suspicious of people's hands near him. Enter GSRA, dum da da daaa!!! Like your favorite super hero who swoops in just before the worst is about to happen, they took Nick in! GSRA fixed his nasty, itching, hurting ears, neutered him, sent him to a trainer for his salty attitude and helped him remember a time when people's hands were "GOOD" and the brought head scratches, tummy tickles and BUTT RUBS! Not beatings and nasty shoves into boxes. Nick got the help he needed and thanks to GSRA he HAS remembered that people are good to him! Nick is now a super sweet middle-aged gentleman, who adores his foster family (dogs & humans), loves to go in the car and meet new people. Nick's world has been opened up and he LOVES it! As bad as Nick had it, as good as he is now, Nick needs a forever home to make his circle-of-life complete. Nick needs a walk or 2 daily and an owner who isn't afraid to go slow with him psychologically speaking. If you take the time to let him get to know you, as you get to know him, the sky is the limit to the love and kisses he will send your way! Nick has a long life ahead of him! Who wants to walk that road with him and blab about how lost this superb dog was before you got him? Nicholas is your guy...and he's waiting for you!
