Niylah - in Maine
Posted November 2022
Niylah is approx. 1 and ½ years old and weighs only about 17 lbs. She is listed as a beagle mix but we wonder if there is some cattle dog in there too with her beautiful speckles and her high energy level.
This beautiful petite girl loves to run and play. She has lived with kids, dogs, cats and birds and is fine with everyone. We know there is beagle in there because if she finds the smallest opportunity to escape a fence or door she will take that adventure 100% of the time.
Since arriving in Maine she has endeared herself to everyone she has met. In foster she is a ball of fun energy! She can be a little skittish with some men but warms up quickly with smart intros. She is interested in absolutely everything and always wants to be part of the party! Her foster family has to be cautious to keep a tight hold on her leash. She loves to be pet and is super friendly. She is living with a dog 6 times her size and 2 cats and doing great with everyone. She is a counter surfer; that nose is always working! She jumps on anything she can reach – couches, coffee tables, window sills! She also is a chewer, so is for sure living out her puppy days that she probably never had a chance to do before. It's fun to see when adult dogs can finally "be a dog" but sometimes is unexpected, so it's one of the great reasons for a foster-based rescue.
Despite her tiny stature, Niylah does not tire easily! A 3-mile hike is just the starting point for her – she’s raring for more. You’re on the couch? She’ll be there too! You’re on the bed, she’ll be there too! She will be a great little sidekick for someone on the go who wants company on their adventures. She loves her squeaky toy and carries it around with her. At the end of the day she will nestle with you and happily nap.
Niylah does great in the crate during the day without her humans and also at night. She is doing well on housetraining as long as you take her out regularly; it might take a little bit to get used to her schedule.
Her foster mom sums up Niylah this way, “she’s just the most happy -go-lucky little thing!”
If you have interest in meeting Niylah or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where our dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
