Nico is one of several dogs who were found on a ranch in the Texas Hill Country. We can only speculate, but we believe that the property owners sold their livestock, moved away, and left the dogs to fend for themselves.  Nico's mom Lydia is VERY friendly, but her pups (two generations) are completely unsocialized, so we're guessing they may have been born after the people moved.

Nico is still extremely skittish of people and has made VERY slow progress. He absolutely will not walk on a leash. He has a big bark which would come in handy for keeping predators and intruders away.

If you are ready to make the commitment to devote yourself to earning Nico's trust, please go to to complete our application.
