All about Nikita
Nikita arrived in our care on August 8 and has settled into her foster home nicely. A typical "velcro" Newf, she loves to spend time with her foster family.  If you're looking for a sweet gal to be your constant companion and hang out at your side, Nikita is the girl for you!  

She came to us through no fault of her own when her owner was not able to meet Nikita's needs.  Nikita is a total doll, she is gentle, well mannered, and sweet as can be!  Her house manners are excellent.  She loooooves to snuggle and is happiest curled up on the couch being petted and adored.  What a great catch!  She would be so very happy to join a family where someone is home most of the time.

She is a creature of habit and likes to keep her foster family on schedule letting everyone know when it is time for a walk, time for meals, etc.  She also loves to "help" in the kitchen when her foster mom is cooking.  If you're in need of a sous-chef, Nikita is up to the task!

Nikita gets along well with other dogs and loves to romp and play with the other pooches in her foster home.  After a fun play session, she can often be found curled up for a snuggle with her playmates.  Awwww.  Nikita would be very happy to join a family with another gentle and friendly dog.

Nikita arrived in our care with some skin infections due to flea-bite dermatitis, but that has all been cleared up and she is doing very well now.  She has now been spayed, and her vaccines are up to date.

Nikita has some arthritis and her back end can be sore.  We have started her on pain meds and this has made a huge difference for her.  Some pain meds and joint supplements will be needed throughout her life.

Nikita is ready to join her perfect forever home -- applications are now being accepted.
Nikita is a senior, so a reduced adoption donation of $350 applies.
