Nikko, mixed breed

Nikko is a lovable male mixed breed dog currently residing at PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society).

He has had all of his shots, and he is neutered.

Here’s more about Nikko:

Nikko is a housebroken 10-year-old pup, who befriends kids, pups and felines alike. He’s an independent little fellow who needs lots of tender, loving care from a patient family. Nikko prefers to have a human or animal friend with him during the day, so he would do best in a home where his owners are not out of the house for long periods of time.

Toby, mixed breed

Toby is an adorable male mixed breed dog being kept at PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society).

He has been vaccinated and neutered.

Here’s more about Toby:

Terrific Toby is a family dog without a family. Given Toby’s silky and wavy coat, regular brushing and periodic grooming are in order to avoid painful mats. Befriending like-sized dogs comes naturally to Toby, so we think he would enjoy having a canine companion. The ideal household will make senior pet care a priority. Creating and reinforcing a set schedule will help Toby better acclimate to a new home environment. Being so people-friendly means Toby will benefit from a home where people are there most of the time.

Here’s more about Roger:

This mild-mannered pup is slowly adjusting to his new environment and faces. Roger’s coat will require frequent brushing and regular grooming in order to avoid painful matting. The ideal home for Roger will make senior pet care a priority and will help him build up his confidence. Roger’s a social senior who would prefer to be around humans most of the time.
