Hello everyone! My name is Nik and I am looking for my forever home. When I came to Needy Paws, I was in really bad shape. I was severely underweight, I had to have most of my tail amputated, and I had sores all over m paws. But guess what? I am all healed and I feel SO much better! I would be thrilled if I could find my forever family. I am a big boy, so I need a fenced in yard. .I like meeting other dogs.  I enjoy walking on a leash and can walk with another dog.  But I play to rough so I would do best in a home without another dog. Here is a bit more info about me:
I am a pit bull mix.
I weigh approximately 60 pounds.
I am around 2 years old.
I am "fixed" as they say and I have all of my shots.
I love food and treats.
I'm still getting used to having food everyday... I would do best if I was fed in a room by myself.
I know some basic commands.
I am 99% house trained... the occasional accident happens if I don't get let out.
I sleep on my bed at night and I don't chew anything but my toys.
I haven't been around cats or kids yet but would probably do best in a house without small kids. I may knock them over...
I am a really good boy and I would love a family to call my own.


If you are interested, complete the  Adoption Application  on our website at  www.NeedyPaws.org  and we will contact you.  Adopters must live within an hour’s drive of St. Louis, MO.
