Meet Nikki! She is an adorable eleven-week-old black female Labrador Retriever puppy. Nikki was given to her former owner as a gift. But, unfortunately, the family’s landlord would not allow them to have a large dog.

Nikki is a typical puppy in every way. She plays, periods of sleep, plays some more, and is always keeping her foster mom on her toes. But, puppies are a lot of work. Nikki is still adjusting to sleeping throughout the night, and her new family will need to be prepared for some sleepless nights.

Nikki’s new home needs to be puppy-proofed, all items picked up and never left on the ground for her to get into. For example, electrical cords should be hidden and out of her reach. In addition, her new home should have an ample supply of appropriate chew toys for puppies. She may chew furniture, legs, shoes, and anything she can reach if not supervised.

Nikki is working on her potty training and doing very well. However, her new family needs to reinforce and establish a routine to continue her training. Nikki is currently fostered with a few other labs, small dogs, and even a cat.

Nikki must complete her puppy shots with her new family, and until she has finished the series of shots, her new family must not take her into public places.

Nikki will be going to her new family in a spay contract. Her foster representative will discuss this with her new family.

Nikki has had her first puppy shot and is microchipped.
