I'm ready for my new family!


I'm Available

Hi my name is Nyx, and I will steal your heart (and probably your socks!). I was named after the goddess of darkness, night, and shadows and I promise I will follow you around like a little shadow! I had a pretty rough start and I am a bit shy at first. Once I warm up I promise I will let you give me all the pets in the world and I am super goofy!

I am new to living with humans and I am curious about EVERYTHING – from my foster mom's toothbrush to watching youtube videos with my foster dad. I am pretty skeptical of loud noises and kids, and I have never met a cat before. I think I would fit best with a lower energy family (but I do like walks). 

When I am not playing tug or fetch with my toys or zooming around the backyard with my foster sister, I am looking for snuggles (I am adamantly convinced I belong on my foster mom's lap at all times). Despite my energy spurts I am very gentle and docile. I have a bit of separation anxiety and I am learning to like my kennel but still need some help.

I am really looking for someone to show me unconditional love and patience. I'm a bit skeptical of men – but my foster dad is pretty cool, so I will learn to trust them, it just takes me a bit longer to warm up. I am not too sure about kids or cats.

I hope my forever family enjoys cuddles, lots of lap sitting, plays tug and fetch, and takes me on an occasional walk. I’d love it if my forever family keeps helping me be the best dog I can be and help me gain more confidence. Oh, and I am super smart and love treats so I would love to learn some tricks! Could this be you?
