Hi, my name is Niles.  I am very timid and scared around new people, but don’t let that stop you from meeting me.  If you are patient with me and make me feel safe and secure, I will come out of my shell. Once I do, you will see a very happy, playful, and loving side.  It may take a few days of my new family holding me, talking nice to me, and petting me for me to start trusting you, but once I do you will love me to death.  When new people come to my home, don’t be surprised if I hide because I am timid.

Once I am out of my shell, I love to play with toys, play fetch, have my tummy rubbed, and just be by your side.  I love to sleep with my favorite people.  I love to play with other dogs, once I’m comfortable around them.  I have not been around cats, so that would be a new experience for me; However, I am great with kids. I will jump though, so hopefully I will not scare them.

I am partly potty trained.  When I go outside I get excited and want to play, so sometimes I forget I am suppose to go potty.  If we play long enough, I will remember and do my job.  My foster mom and dad work long hours, so they do put down puppy pads and I always go potty on those and not the floors.  I am smart and very capable of being taught new things.

My foster mom and dad know I would make the right family the perfect companion once I get comfortable and learn I am safe.  Please consider me for your home.  Love Niles.
