Introducing the world’s biggest cuddle bug…Nixon! If you want a giant lap dog…Nixon is the guy for you. He is an almost 2 year old, stunning male Rottweiler Cross.
Nixon ‘pawsitively’ loves to be around people. He loves cuddles, and will climb on you anywhere and anytime to get extra cuddles and kisses. He follows his humans around the house day or night and will choose to sleep beside them all the time, but he is also okay with staying in his kennel when needed. He has been known to ‘paw’ on the bedroom doors to say good morning to all his loved ones, informing them that his breakfast is late!!
We would suggest that Nixon be the only dog in the home. He definitely loves companionship and playing with his current foster dog, but Nixon takes on the alpha dog role, ensuring that he is the centre of attention. Also, Nixon is high energy, still needing training to calm down prior to going on a walk and/or humans leaving the home for the day. He also needs plenty of chew toys, as he at times is still very mouthy during play, exercise and when overexcited.
Nixon will pull a little when walking on a leash, but is manageable. He is very calm when meeting other dogs and has not shown any aggression when on a leash. He has positively shown success in training, learning how to ‘sit’, ‘wait’ and ‘shake a paw’. Nixon has been working hard to be ready for his ‘furever’ family, are you the family he has been waiting for?
