Enake (Niki)

alt It was love at first sight when Claudia and Mark met Niki, our rescue German Shepherd x puppy. They flew through their interview and home inspection and had bought everything she needed - even before the adoption was formally approved. alt:)

Her new name Enake (meaning 'Alert') suits her beautifully. We are absolutely thrilled for this gorgeous little girl.

ORIGINAL ADVERT: Introducing smart little Niki

Sixteen-week-old Niki was taken to a vet clinic for a lethal injection, partly because she wouldn't make a good pig dog. Fortunately the vet nurse knew about Animal Re-homing and urgently contacted us for help. Thankfully, instead of paying for her to be put down, Niki's caregiver contributed towards her vet costs and agreed to sign her over. A few days later our dedicated volunteers, Imogen and Gareth, met the kind nurse half way and brought affectionate Niki to Auckland.

Niki is a sweet and loyal little German Shepherd x Border Collie puppy who loves to be with people and other dogs. Already this intelligent girl can be walked off-leash, comes to the call, sits and lays down. Although still underweight, she is beginning to fill out nicely. She will be a beautiful dog for an active individual, couple or family.

Many thanks to Dog Protection Society New Zealand for fostering her for us and to Hayley at Designer Dog Grooming Ltd for nail-clipping, brushing and bathing Niki.
