Hello my name is Nyko I was saved from the euthanasia list at the county animal control, just in time for Christmas. The person who saved me has been working with me daily since.My favorite thing is chasing tennis balls and belly rubs. He is a diamond in the rough, he knows commands, sit, shake and down, walks well on a leash. However, tends to play too rough until corrected. He would do better in an experienced dog owner that knows herding breed behavior, active adult home, or one with older children, at least until he is taught how to play properly. He would be an awesome hiking, biking or running companion.
