Nikita is amazingly sweet and gentle, especially given her history. She and 4 other dogs were seized by county officers because of their living conditions and the condition of each dog. Nikita was only 27 pounds when she was seized, malnourished and severely neglected. She is now a slender but healthy 45 pounds, so she nearly doubled in weight at the shelter. With a clean living environment, plenty of healthy food, fresh air, exercise and much needed veterinary care, Nikita is well on her way to being the beautiful dog she should be. She is already as good natured as a dog could possibly be. She loves people and wants to be with them. She is playful and loves to play with balls of all sizes.

Despite being starved earlier in her life, Nikita takes treats very gently and will sit and wait patiently for her meals to be put down.She is completely housetrained. She gets along very well with the other dogs in her foster home, but is really much more people-focused than dog-focused. With her beautiful red/gold coat, she will be a stunning dog when fully recovered from her ordeal. A beauty, inside and out. Nikita is quickly becoming a volunteer favorite, but what we really want for her is a home with warm, soft beds and a family of her own to love and care for her. Let's show Nikita that her faith in people is not misplaced!
