Niko was a stray dog. He was a pit bull mix and he was 4 years old when he was found. He may have been a stray but he surely was a sweet dog. He was found by his rescuers just walking around the streets and he had a stuffed toy he was carrying. The rescuers noticed that the dog would not let go of the toy.
For this dog, his stuffed toy is his best friend and it is the source of his comfort. It goes with him anywhere and everywhere he goes. No one knows how long Niko has had this stuffed toy but it seems like he has this strong connection with the toy.
Niko was picked up by animal services in Lockhart, Texas. He was in really bad shape. He did not have a home. He was filthy as well.
When he was rescued, he was brought to a shelter and given the basic things that a dog needs. Amy Baxter, one of the people working in the shelter, observed that Niko was a very gentle dog and he definitely does not go anywhere without his stuffed toy.
Amy took some pictures of Niko and posted them on Facebook. She thought that this would be a really good way for people to notice Niko so that he would get adopted. She said that the dog does well mingling with female dogs but not as much when it came to male dogs. She believes that Niko would do well for families even if they have children.
Niko has also been treated for heartworm. The people working in the shelter have come to love Niko and they are looking forward to the day that he gets adopted because they know that he deserves a loving home.
