Shih Tzu mix


Nickel is a sweet boy who was turned into a shelter by his owners, and saved by BDRA.  Nickel is a very laid back dog!  He likes to sleep at this point, but he also enjoys time spent outside in the back garden exploring. He is adjusting to our schedule and getting eye drops three times a day. He is gentle and barks when he needs something (water, food or to go out). He tolerates handling pretty well and seems to be doing better each day!
He sleeps around the house during the day, but he is crated if we leave or overnight for his safety. He doesn’t seem to totally understand stairs yet, but is learning.
Nickel is getting used to being pet and cuddled, and seems to accept the attention well!

Nickel was adopted!
