Adoption Day for Nikki!
A huge congratulations is in order for Nikki!~ Originally on death row in Georgia, this sweet girl finally found her forever home with Linda, Nancy & Kathy Kuhn of Portland, OR. Nikki was heartworm positive when she came to us so she has gone through some very intense medical treatment. As you can see, she moved right into her new home and also the hearts of her 3 new moms!
Nikki is a beautiful purebred beagle who we rescued from a shelter in Georgia, where she was on death row. She tested positive for heartworm and Erlichia (tick borne disease), was full of worms, and very sick. Despite all of this, she is the sweetest girl! She has been treated for Erlichia and has completed the grueling heartworm treatments. She is now ready for adoption and this girl will melt your heart! She is so pretty with her thick eyeliner and has a mellow personality. She is about 8 years old.
