About Nico

Adoption Fee: $225.00
Dachshund mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

***Application must be filled out to meet or adopt Nico*** Nico is a 5 year old male dachshund mix who was originally adopted from Revolution Rescue in July 2016. He was returned to rescue December 27th, 2017 after he became paralyzed and was diagnosed with Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD). Nico weighs 18 pounds and is a happy little guy who is loving life and isn't phased by the fact he can't walk. He is currently receiving chiropratic and acupuncture treatments and taking a couple herbal supplements for his IVDD. He loves going for car rides and taking walks in the neighborhood in his set of wheels which will go with him when he is adopted. He prefers not to use the wheels at home as he can get around very well without them. Nico can stand and has taken a few steps on his own! His foster mom expresses his bladder a few times a day. Don't let this scare you as it's very easy to learn and Nico doesn't mind it at all. He does wear a belly band when he's scooting around the house to help with accidents. Nico gets along with most dogs and cats but will chase a cat if they run as he thinks they are playing. He enjoys playing with other dogs and is constantly trying to get his foster fur siblings to play with him. He can be a little stubborn and slow to trust, but he loves to be with his foster mom, shower her with kisses, and follow her everywhere. Nico is looking for a patient, loving family that will continue with his treatment plan and love him regardless if he's able to walk again. He is current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $225.00. If you are interested in adopting Nico please visit our website at www.revolutionrescue.com and complete an application and someone will be in touch.
