Nico, poodle

Nico's current caretakers say:

Just three years old, Nicco is a gorgeous boy from his little white chin to the tip of his fluffy black tail. Because of his separation anxiety, he should be placed in a home with another doggie friend. Also, he needs an adopter who has experience with dogs who have suffered trauma. Once you connect with Nicco, you'll find a sweetie who loves to snuggle.
