Riches to rags to riches again: Nikita’s story


Nikita is a cream and white Afghan hound who was born in Russia in 2018 from a bloodline of prior championship present canine winners. Her grandfather was one of the worlds most recognised Afghan hounds. Nikita and her brother were imported to their initially owners in Italy who trained her to be a demonstrate pet dog. They grew to become well known across Europe for their pet display wins.

Regretably catastrophe struck when Covid rapidly ravaged Italy. Nikitas owners sad to say go away leaving Nikita and her brother orphaned. With good disappointment, Nikita and her brother were being taken to a puppy compound for orphaned dogs the place disorders are notoriously very poor and h2o isnt noticed as a necessary for the canine.

The upcoming seemed grim for Nikita and her brother but due to Nikita and her brother being recognized internationally, a wonder was despatched in the form of a nicely regarded winner doggy breeder from the Uk who negotiated for their launch with the Italian puppy compound to have them imported to the Uk.

When they arrived in the Uk they ended up in a essential issue, together with Nikitas brothers tail staying broken. Both equally wanted months of rehabilitation and close care to get them back again to health. Immediately after Nikita was nursed back again to overall health she was presented up for adoption in which I saw the advert and right away bought excited. It has usually been a lifetime extended desire of mine to individual a Afghan hound, not to use for demonstrates, but to have a new greatest pal.

Around 100 persons applied to adopted Nikita but for a next time, a wonder struck yet again when I was picked out to adopt her and give her a without end loving dwelling. I can’t make clear how blessed and grateful I come to feel to have been specified this possibility.

Unbelievably there is a wonderful ending to this tale which is quite shut to my heart. When i seemed at her paperwork I identified that she was born on the very same working day that a very near friend of mine referred to as Peter died, who was also a quite passionate dog lover. In my impression i really feel that Peter has sent Nikita to me.

The most wonderful component of all this is that when I talked about Peter, Nikita responded to his title! So in Peters memory I now refer to Nikita as Npeter and she responds right away.

Npeter is living her ideal life now and I am so joyful to be sharing this unbelievable story with you.
