Nightingale's Story

Nightingale is a true gentleman! His foster mom can attest to that! In her own words, she says: 

“I’ve never met a sweeter dog. He is so lovable and affectionate. When we first took him home he was filled with gratitude and happiness. (His) favorite games: fetch and tug-of-war. Unique traits: He copies humans, when my partner and I hug he thinks its his turn next and will wrap his arms around your waist and place his head on your stomach. He doesn’t just like to cuddle, he likes to hold you and be held. He sense emotions and is very receptive. If you seem sad, he will truly comfort you, if you seem happy or excited, he will match that energy. What I'll miss the most about Nightingale: Everything!”  

Nightingale is a true connoisseur of toys and treats.This makes training him a breeze, but he can have some difficulty sharing. For this reason, his ideal home would have older children and no other pets. 

Nightingale is currently relaxing in his foster home. To set up a time to meet him, please e-mail
