Niko (Friends of Akitas, kennelled Notts.)

This handsome chap is 7-year-old Niko who is at Friends of Akitas Trust UK kennels in Nottinghamshire through no fault of his own.

Niko loves going out for a walk and will vocalise his excitement, just so that you know that he really is excited! He walks well on the lead, but can sometimes get a little bit giddy, and he loves to explore. Niko is house trained and not destructive and he also travels well in the car, watching the world go by for 10 minutes and then falling to sleep in his taxi.

Niko has never really been a fan of toys but he does enjoy a run around in the garden and his favourite game is chase with his human friends.

Friends of Akitas told us:
“This lovely boy has the best smile you will see on a dog, he has a happy disposition and is loving and cuddly. His previous owner has let us know that he is fine with children out and about, but as he has never lived with them we are looking for a home with children over the age of 12 or adult only. Although Niko will walk nicely with the other dogs at kennels he prefers his own space and needs to be the only dog in his new home. He is untested with cats.”

Niko is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. All he needs now is that loving forever family to call his own.

Could fun-loving Niko be your new best buddy?
