Please say Hello to our new Terrier SOS family member! Nico was handed in to the perrera by his 'owner' - they gave the right to sacrifice (meaning the shelter is allowed to put down the dog) - so another dog that had no time and we couldn't risk any delay - so we asked wonderful volunteers for help and they stepped right in.
Nico has been moved to kennels, his fur was in such a matted state that he had to be sedated and shaved by a vet. We suspect he has been chained his whole life in a yard - not much human or dog interaction - he was very scared and very timid.
He will need a slow and patient introduction into being a pet, he's only 4 years old and has many years ahead of him. He is loving and wants to live and love - so if you feel you are right for him, please do download a form!
