Update April 2014:

Tomorrow will be 6 months since we adopted our sweet girl, Nike, from you (formerly Gracie).  She has brought so much joy to our household.  When we adopted her, she was starving and had no hair on her feet or the tip of her tail. She has since developed a healthy coat and packed on 20 pounds of pure muscle.  She is extremely social with people and dogs.  She has developed a best friend in the neighborhood and they love to roll around together and chase each other.  She is my favorite running partner (we are in training for our first 5k together at your May Day)!  She loves going for hikes as you can tell from the pictures provided
​.  Initially, we had some separation anxiety but now she knows she is loved and we will always come home to her.  We could not ask for a better dog!  Thank you for saving her life and adding so much joy to ours!
