Nigel's Story

Say hello to Nigel!  Nigel is one handsome fellow who is looking for an active household who enjoys being out and about and enjoys exploring all that the world has to offer just as much as he does!  This adorable baby boy has the cutest perky ears you may ever see in your lifetime!  They give him so much personality and just adds on to his charmingly good looks.  Nigel is a playful pup who has never had the chance to be a part of a family of his very own.  He dreams of the day his human hero will come along and show him exactly what it’s like to be loved and cherished completely.  Nigel’s ideal forever home would include an ample amount of space he can run and play in, a collar of his very own, and a warm place to sleep at night!  He is a rough and tumble kind of guy and would do best with other dogs who are just like him and would be able to handle his specific play style.  Since he is just a pup, Nigel is still learning how to mind his manners, especially when walking on a leash.  He is hoping that his new family will be able to continue his training in the future and help him to become the gentleman we all know he can be!  Nigel has already mastered the sit command and will show off what he can do as soon as you show him a treat!  Learning new tricks will be easy for this food-motivated boy!

Nigel is searching for an active home with an experienced owner and without young children.  He is a total goofball who will hopes that his forever home will have a bin full of toys he can play with whenever he pleases!  He also enjoys stuffed Kong toys and bones of all shapes and sizes.  Give him one to chew on and he’ll surely love you forever and ever!  All in all, Nigel is one special boy who is bound to bring tons of laughter and joy to the lucky family who adopts him.  If you dream of giving a deserving dog a forever home just as much as he dreams of having one, then come and visit with sweet Nigel today!
