- Lab/terrier? mix,
- 4 years,

While her looks suggest she might be a chocolate lab mix, her personality doesn’t quite fit the goofiness of that breed. Nika enjoys walks but really loves to play in the backyard, and she will always let you know when someone is at the door. It does seem that she has enough lab in her to really enjoy a swim in a pond or lake!
She can be a real snuggler, too. Nika is house trained, has great house manners, is crate trained and she has lived with cats, although the cat must be dog-savvy, and introductions should be gradual while she gets used to her new companions. She got her Canine Good Citizen certification when she was younger and does very well with basic commands, although sometimes she gets so excited outside the home and forgets some things. Nika was placed by Peppertree when she was six months old and has been a much loved member of her family, but was returned because she became anxious when the baby in her home started walking. Babies and toddlers totally stress her out! Rather than ask Nika to live apart or spend far too much time in a crate, her family returned Nika to Peppertree so she can find a home where she will be happy and relaxed again. She does well with older kids, but prefers a quiet home without a lot of busy activity. She is looking for a home with a fenced-in yard so she can relax, sniff and play.
