Nico is a 3 year old male Yorkshire Terrier Cross. He is currently in our care in Northern Spain. He was found in the mountains. We don’t know how he ended up there, if he was abandoned or if he escaped from his previous place, but from how he looked and the conditions of his coat he was already wandering for a longer time in the mountains or the conditions where he previously was weren’t the best ones.
Since Nico is in our care he transformed from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan. He is a happy, loving little dog, who is affectionate and enjoys the company of humans. He is also an active and playful boy who likes to go out for walks or be around other dogs.
As long as he gets the activity he needs, he is a calm and super relaxed boy at home who likes to snuggle on the sofa. He is not completely housetrained yet but on the right way to learning it. On the lead, he walks quite well. Nico likes to talk 🙂
As a typical Yorkshire, he can be vocal on walks when he sees other dogs or at unexpected noises, so a quiet environment would be preferable. Nico has been tested with dogs and cats and behaves well with them, also he is at the beginning a bit unsecure/shy towards them. As he isn’t used to living with them, he will need patience, time, and a right introduction in case his forever home has cats at home.
We are looking for a home where Nico will have the company of a further dog. A further dog is important for him, as he becomes sad when he is the only dog at home. His future forever home should also be happy to spend time with him outside and take him out for long walks, to meet other dogs he can play with, or to do any other activities.
His size shouldn’t confuse you, he isn’t a bag dog, but more a little whirlwind. If you are interested in Nico and can offer him the home he deserves please get in touch with us. This handsome boy is in Spain but will travel to the UK (England or Wales, Not Scotland) with his vaccinations, neutered, pet passport, and tested for Mediterranean diseases as soon as the right forever home comes forward.
We are happy to hear from you and to know what experience you have and why you think Nico is the right boy for you.
