We have another adorable cattle dog up for adoption this week. NIKKI is at It Takes a Village, waiting to meet you and maybe become a part of your family.

NIKKI is a 4-year-old female cattle dog who weighs just 32 lbs. She was saved from a hoarding situation, and now she's just ready to get and give love. NIKKI is treat-motivated and eager to please her new owners. She would love a home that knows how to keep her cattle dog mind busy, but NIKKI also knows how to relax - she can’t wait to have a couch to call her own. NIKKI had a heavy flea infestation prior to being rescued by ITV - that's been taken care of, but she is still working on regrowing some hair.

If you’d like to be part of NIKKI's transformation and get a new best friend in the process, complete an adoption application at ITVrescue.org. Her adoption fee is $200.

And as always, if our pet of the week isn’t the right fit for your home, please visit It Takes a Village to see the other rescues that need to get fostered and adopted. Keep in mind that It Takes a Village is still in need of fosters for mommas and litters. It's puppy season at ITV.

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and FIV/FeLV-tested.

ITV is open during regular hours. However, they have received so much support and interest over shut down, that they are still working diligently to review all correspondences. They appreciate everyone’s patience as they find the best matches for their rescues.
