Nigel…A Most Handsome Chap Looking For Fun! With a name like Nigel, one would envision a handsome, refined, sophisticated boy sipping tea. Our Nigel is certainly handsome, but with all of his tail wagging, he would most likely clear out the tea party. Before joining Houndhaven, Nigel was found as a stray in the Panhandle of Florida. We can’t believe that such a good-natured boy was left wandering the streets, but one thing is for sure, he won’t have to worry about that ever again.
Nigel is a charming one-year old black lab. He is 64 pounds of youth, and playfulness. Since Nigel is just a year old, he still has a bit of puppy energy in him. Nigel loves playing with his new furry friends at Houndhaven, and is quite the ladies man with Nellie and Meadow. Nigel also enthusiastically shows the volunteers how much he loves them and how much he enjoys getting attention.
Besides loving people and dogs, Nigel loves playing with toys. He enjoys going to our adoption outreach events and even participated in yoga recently. Nigel likes going for walks and doesn’t mind a few pit stops for snuggle time. Nigel is not only good-looking but he’s smart too. He knows “sit” and is so eager to please, he will easily learn more.
Nigel might have had a “ruff” start, but he never let that change his fun-loving personality. He will make a wonderful addition to an active family that enjoys hugs and kisses, and lots of play time. If you’ve been looking for a handsome, playful, active boy, that even knows yoga, Nigel is just the one for you.

Beautiful Biscuit! Biscuit is a 4 year old male Pomeranian/Chihuahua Blend and weights about 6 pounds. Biscuit would do best with a patient family who is home often with a quieter house where he can gain his confidence and really blossom! He is a little shy at first, but he does well with other small, low energy dogs. Come meet this little guy and see if he would be a good fit for your family!
