Niko~ in Iowa

Looking for a Home

My name is Niko, I'm a three year old neutered male currently fostered in central Iowa. I have six other dogs to play with in my foster home, five Silkys and a Golden Retriever. While I get along well with the Silkys my foster mom say's I have some issues with the big Golden. I love to run around in the yard and play! I am a bit of a chubby boy though so Ive been put on a diet to help me loose a few pounds. My new mom or dad will need to make sure I have plenty of exercise or play time and not overfeed me. I want to keep my cute and healthy new figure!

My foster mom has given me a bath and done some grooming.... I really did not like having my feet messed with! I am housetrained and have also learned to use the doggie door.

I need a home with no young children because I have nipped and I'm a little insecure with quick movements. Chances are I might like to bother some cats and I do not get along with all dogs (like that Golden Retriever!). As such I would be best suited to a home with with some other Silkys or dogs my size. I would really like to have my own home before the holidays. If you're interested in me please fill out a application and mention my name.

Preference will be given to local or in state applicants. Niko's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him, and there will be an adoption fee or donation.

The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email Lyda at and let her know you are interested in Niko(please include your name and state so we can find your application in our files).
