Hello, my name is Nick, short for St. Nicholas. I am a very handsome and sweet approximately four-year old make pit bull mix.  I arrived at Speranza on Christmas Eve 2016 and quickly became a volunteer favorite.  I am looking for a family with no cats or dogs.  I am stunning, sweet, affectionate and have manners, what’s not to love?  I used to have a family and would love to find another one soon!


Janine has a tradition of going to a shelter on Christmas Eve and asking the shelter staff to pick a dog for her to save.  One Christmas Eve 2016, thankfully, the shelter staff asked Janine to save me.  I was an owner surrender and my time had run out.   The shelter staff saw how nice of a dog I am and knew that I was only in the shelter because my family could no longer keep me for personal reasons. It’s a Christmas Miracle that I am still alive.

I am such a good boy.  I keep a very clean kennel, I take treats nicely, I know some basic commands and I am food motivated.  I can walk nicely on the leash, but can pull when I get excited.  I would love to work on obedience traning with my new family to help us bond and to help make me the well behaved family member I so deserve to be.
