I am 9mo old Niko, an AussieGoldenDor.  

Currently, I'm quickly learning city living.  Meeting other dogs on the street has been a little scary and I tend to stop in my tracks. On the other hand, I've been getting along with other dogs off leash and the dogs in my foster home. If no other fur kids are on the street, I tend to pull on leash. We are working on this. My foster mama has started clicking some device when it seems like I'm doing what she wants, and then I get a treat! I'm good at figuring out how to get her to make that sound AND the treat!

I've been known to resource guard and foster mama hasn't quite seen this side of me yet but I do like to be vocal when trying to get attention. I would do best in a home with experienced dog handling adults who all give clear direction, can give firm commands (and maybe click that thing and give me treat when I do what they want) For this reason, a home with small children wouldn't be a good match. I'd also like a cat free home (so would the hypothetical cat). 

I'm playful, fun, can behave in stores and outdoor dining. I'm just 9 months so I'm still excitable but am eager to learn! Love me, teach me, today!

I am fostered in Brooklyn, NY
