Nixie is the sweetest girl! One of the easiest adult dogs you could possibly adopt, despite her tough past. She is independent while still affectionate. She is completely housetrained and has had no accidents, nor chewed on anything in the house. Nixie loves to be petted and loves to be cuddled with. She is independent and happy to sleep wherever in the house, even at night. She's not an anxious dog whatsoever and does well while people are at work, sleeping all day. Nixie is quiet, only has barked a few times while in the yard when she hears something on the street. Nixie is a great on a leash and so easy to take for walks, which she loves (and benefits from, as she has a bit of extra weight to lose). She always wants to greet people when on walks in the neighborhood, and she does well with greeting other dogs on hiking trails. After about a week, she has begun playing gently and quietly with one of the other dogs in her foster home. Nixie greets you calmly at the door with a wagging tail. She doesn't jump on people. Consider Nixie for your family if you want an incredibly sweet, extremely easygoing, well-behaved dog!  At MAMCO we understand that in order to continue rescuing moms and babies, we must stretch our finances as far as we are able. For this reason we use variable adoption pricing. By assigning higher adoption fees to high demand moms and puppies, we are able to rescue more families in need.The money raised through these adoptions acts as a benefactor to moms and puppies in our care who require expensive veterinary treatments, have behavioral issues, or need more time to find a home. We often reduce the adoption fees on these harder-to-place moms and puppies to help them find forever families. Adoption fees vary, but all include spay or neuter, microchip, up to date vaccinations and deworming, rabies vaccine at the time of spay or neuter, and 30 days of pet insurance. We also cover hernia repair and cherry eye repair at the time of spay or neuter. Applications can be filled out at mamcorescue.org. show less
