Pet Corner: Nikko

Hampden County

Name: Nikko
Location: Springfield: Dakin Humane Society
Breed: Chow/lab mix
Gender: Female
Age: 9 months
Color: Black

Nikko is a Dixie Dog who came to Dakin last month and is still waiting for a home. She gets along with other dogs on a case-by-case basis, so it’s important that introductions to other dogs be slow and easy. If you have a dog already and want to adopt Nikko, you should bring your dog to Dakin in Springfield so they can meet before you finalize the adoption. We don’t know her background with cats, but can look into that if you have a kitty. She’s an ideal first dog for someone without canine experience, and she would make a good walking buddy. She loves belly rubs and all signs of affection. Come meet this sweet girl at our Springfield Adoption & Education Center.
