About Nugget

Nugget is a complete love! He can be a little fearful around new people or animals, but once he warms up he will mostly want to cuddle, or show you a toy he doesn’t want to share 🙂 He likes to be around calm and quiet energy and will return the favor. An owner who loves to be out in nature and go on hikes or lounge on a couch after a long day would be perfect for him. We rescued him from a hectic home situation from a family member and already have two dogs. He’s been with us for about 9 months now, and we’ve seen a drastic improvement in the way he socializes, but I’d say it’s still better for him to be the only dog in the home. He can be territorial and loud barks can trigger his anxiety and make him a little reactive.

He’s a beautiful soul who deserves a calm and restful home that we sadly can’t provide.
