When Nike entered the Sanctuary her life had certainly changed and she knew it...

Nike is a very new rescue into the Sanctuary and we are just getting to know this very special girl...

Each dog who resides here is special in their very own way but sometimes, a dog will come in who is just a little different. Maybe it is the way they pull on our heartstrings through a health issue like Brigadoon or they may come in under weight and elderly like Baron. No matter what their situation each dog is very special but some of them speak to us right from day one.

Nike is one of those dogs who bonded with us the moment she arrived. There is something about her we just cant place but in time we are very excited to get to know just how special this girl really is.

When Nike entered the Sanctuary her life had certainly changed and she knew it. Since she comes from a mushing background we believe we can get through to her even faster with some time out on the trail. For dogs like her, who love to work in harness, just showing them that they still have a purpose in life and a job to do often does wonders for their health and mind. And with the few times she has been on the trail with us we can already see some amazing potential hiding just beneath the surface.

Like Beyla, Nike may have leader qualities and she certainly doesn't mind running up front to see what is going on. This girl LOVES her job in harness and with a little practice these two girls just may be leading a team of their own some day!
