Pet Of The Week: Nizhoni The Dog

Nizhoni is an 8-year-old boxer/shepherd mix. Nizhoni has been at the shelter the longest out of all the dogs and cats currently at the shelter, and shelter staff and volunteers can’t figure out why.
She is a great all-around dog who is house trained, crate trained, and does well with other dogs and kids. She knows basic commands such as “sit,” “speak,” and “roll over.” 
Her favorite pastime is to give lots of love and snuggles, and she’s hoping that her new home is just around the corner. Her soft fur is perfect for cuddling up against on a cold winter night. Help find this sweet girl a home.
