NIGEL IS IN A BOARDING FACILITY AND NOT DOING WELL. THIS SWEET HAPPY BOY IS SUFFERING SEVERELY FROM KENNEL STRESS AND DESPERATELY NEEDS A FOSTER FAMILY, PREFERABLY WITHOUT KIDS OR OTHER DOGS SO HE CAN GET THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF ATTENTION NEEDED TO HEAL. WITHOUT INTERVENTION HE WILL CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE. THIS IS NIGEL: I'm NIGEL, a 1.5-year-old, 55 lb., male Black Mouth Cur mix who is ready for spring training and anxious to get into the field to retrieve balls for the Phillies...or the Yankees...or the Mets...I'm not picky. I just know I have mad fetching skills and am fast as lightning, but I need to brush up on 'drop' and other doggie commands. I'll make a great teammate because I'm sweet and loving (but don't tell the other guys...they might think I'm a softy...which I am, but I don't think we need to spread this info around the locker room, ok?). I like other dogs and older kids, but no cats, please. I'm housebroken and crate trained. If you'd like to be my coach and have a nice stadium (I mean yard) we can play in, I'll be your MVP in no time. I'm NIGEL! Come get me super fast. NIGEL is neutered and up to date on age appropriate vaccines. Adoption fee is $325. Please note that training is highly recommended for all dogs. As with all rescue animals, breed determination cannot be validated without genetic testing. Visit WWW.LULUSRESCUE.ORG and click on the ADOPT tab for an overview of Lulu's Rescue adoption process. Thanks for adopting and saving a life -- you are NIGEL'S hero!
