Nico – 3 year old male Yorkshire Terrier Cross

Nico is a 3 year old male Yorkshire Terrier Cross. He is currently in our care in Northern Spain. He was found in the mountains. We don’t know how he ended up there, if he was abandoned or if he escaped from his previous place, but from how he looked and the conditions of his coat he was already wandering for a longer time in the mountains or the conditions where he previously was weren’t the best ones.

Since Nico is in our care he transformed from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan. He is a happy, loving little dog, who is affectionate and enjoys the company of humans. He is also an active and playful boy who likes to go out for walks or be around other dogs.

As long as he gets the activity he needs, he is a calm and super relaxed boy at home who likes to snuggle on the sofa. He is not completely housetrained yet but on the right way to learning it. On the lead, he walks quite well. Nico likes to talk 🙂

As a typical Yorkshire, he can be vocal on walks when he sees other dogs or at unexpected noises, so a quiet environment would be preferable. Nico has been tested with dogs and cats and behaves well with them, also he is at the beginning a bit insecure/shy towards them. As he isn’t used to living with them, he will need patience, time, and the right introduction in case his forever home has cats at home.

We are looking for a home where Nico will have the company of a further dog. A further dog is important for him, as he becomes sad when he is the only dog at home. His future forever home should also be happy to spend time with him outside and take him out for long walks, to meet other dogs he can play with, or to do any other activities.

His size shouldn’t confuse you, he isn’t a bag dog, but more a little whirlwind. If you are interested in Nico and can offer him the home he deserves please get in touch with us.

This handsome boy is in Spain but will travel to the UK (England or Wales, Not Scotland) with his vaccinations, neutered, pet passport, and tested for Mediterranean diseases as soon as the right forever home comes forward.

We are happy to hear from you and to know what experience you have and why you think Nico is the right boy for you.

TeLuMa’s Dream

For further details regarding adopting a dog from TeLuMa’s Dream, please email Olga, Jessica or Greta at or visit our website We are a Spanish voluntary organization which rescues primarily dogs from a public pound in Galicia, in Northern Spain, where the dogs instead of living, are trying to survive. 99% of the dogs are strays or have been abandoned by their owners on the street. The dogs are a variety of breeds and come in all shapes and sizes! We are funded entirely by donations and work hard in our free time to help rescue and rehome as many dogs as possible. With your help we can continue our work and provide food, bedding, medical supplies and care for the dogs until they are well enough to find their forever homes. All dogs rehomed via TeLuMa’s Dream are microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, deflead and spayed/neutered if old enough, if not the adoption contract will stipulate that this is done as soon as old enough and this will be checked with your vet. We re-home dogs to England and Wales and in some exceptions also to Scotland, if it’s specified like that on the dog’s description. Our aim is to pair each dog with the right new owner, ensuring that it will be safe, cared for and loved for the rest of its life. Therefore all potential adopters will be asked to complete a questionnaire. Also a homecheck is carried out and a video call to adoption. Please note that we never reserve dogs in advance of our full process having been carried out. We reserve all final decisions on compatible dogs until after the home visit, so please bear in mind that your application will be considered a general application for adoption until final confirmation has been given by both adopter and Teluma's Dream. We offer a full rescue back up service to all our adopters and post-adoption support, which includes a Facebook support group and free behavioral advice.
Please also be aware that all dogs who are adopted through TeLuMa’s Dream remain part of our extended family throughout their lifetime. We ask for regular updates during the settling in period following their adoption, and for an ongoing quarterly updates and follow ups after that for the duration of the dogs whole life. We are committed to our dogs and our forever families and this allows us to support you and your dog, but at the same time, knowing how the dogs are, receiving updates and keeping us informed is also the reward for all the efforts, time and costs that are involved in saving each dog. If you feel happy with this level of communication then we would be happy to hear from you.
