Nikia is settling in great to her foster home. Her foster parents report that Nikia is a delighful dog. She loves to ride in the car and just look out the window. She walks beautifully on a leash with minimal correction ("back") to keep her from walking out front and pulling. Nikia doesn't lunge or bark at people, other dogs, or anything else - just perks her ears up and shows interest but stays quietly by handler's side. Nikia is calm around small children - she perks perked up her ears and sits nicely to watch. Nikia loves tennis balls and tends to hoard them, so attention to taking those away when not supervised is necessary. Nikia likes bully sticks too. Nikia will only play with a toy if it is specifically given to her for play. Nikia stays off the furniture unless given permission. Nikia follows her humans around the house. If Nikia sounds like a good fit for your family, ask to meet her today.
Nikia's playful nature is coming out now that she is getting more secure in her environment. She loves to ride in the car and go for walks and loves to play.
She knows some basic obedience commands and is quite food motivated.
Crate trained. Goes right into the crate to eat and when she wants some down time. She waits patiently by the front door and pants or softly whines when she needs to go out to relieve herself.
She comes when called when she is off leash. She is very social and friendly but never jumps up on people. When she is really excited she does these little leaps in the air but not onto anyone or anything, just leaps a little bit in her own space.
She is very teachable. Has already learned "back" when I want her to get behind me so I can go out the door first.
