OH/Nicholas Brittany Young Male

Erie, PA

Hi! My name is Nicholas. I'm named after the person who saw me on face book and contacted NBRAN. You can call me Nickie. I am only ten months old and I am a Brittany mix. I was running around in South Eastern Ohio with another young dog when I got caught by the animal shelter people. There were dogs everywhere at the shelter and it was very loud. I was fear biting people who I did not trust. Luckily one of the volunteers at the shelter drove me tomeet with my foster mom and I got to go into a house for the first time. I did not want to go in at first because I was scared,so my foster mom sat out on the porch with me until I trusted her. She also fed me delicious canned dog food. Yum! I finally felt comfortable with meeting the other dogs and eventually going into the house. I was scared of my foster dad at first, but he was nice and patient also. I had never been in a house. I didn't know anything about steps, the vacuum cleaner, going to the bathroom outside, or using a doggy door. My foster siblings taught me lots of things. My foster mom and dad taught me to trust them and not be scared. They take me for walks twice a day. I do pretty well on the leash until I see something or someone that scares me. At first I would go up on my back legs and growl and bark. Now I am used to some of the things I see on my walks, but I still growl and bark sometimes if I get startled. If I meet someone new it is important to let me come up to you first instead of coming up to me.I love my foster parents very much, especially my mom. I don't always want to share her with my fur siblings, and will nip at them if they want pet. My foster mom calls it "resource guarding" and corrects me when I do it. I also like to "stare down" my siblings and my foster mom corrects me for that too. Because I was out on my own for a while, I eat my food very quickly when I am fed. I will sit for my food and to get treats. I use the doggy door now and can be crated for up to six hours with a treat or a chewy. I have a high prey drive, so cats are not a good idea. I am still very nervous around the vet and new people I meet on the street and in my foster home. I do not know how to act around small children either. I know I am still a "work in progress", but if you are patient and have another dog to help me learn, I will give you puppy kisses, sleep with you in bed and wag my long tail furiously when I see you. I want to be a good dog and have my very own family.Hello, I am Nickie's foster mom. He has been with me for almost 6 weeks and has made tremendous progress. He takes herbal supplements and medicine daily to help with his anxiety and car sickness . He has to be crated while you are gone as he is still learning what he can and can't chew on. He needs a fenced in back yard and would do better with a playful, non-aggressive dog to play with and learn from. He loves to chase birds and will even watch animals on the television! He responds to his name, sits, loves to cuddle and give kisses. He does better with routine so he knows what's going on. He would benefit from training to continue to learn and listen.Nickie is micro chipped, up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and neutered. If you are the kind of Brittany owner who can see the potential in a scared, unsure puppy who will want to please and love you unconditionally, then Nickie is just the project you need! Having Brittany experience is absolutely necessary. Experience with fearful dogs would also be a plus. Because of Nickie's anxiety and car sickness, I would like an adopter no more than four hours away from Ohio. If you are interested in Ohio Nickie, please fill out an adoption application at and contact Roberta Ruck at
