From his family left behind
I adopted Niko from Florida Akita Rescue on November 28, 2010, he was 7 years old and only had one eye due to glaucoma surgery. He was sheltered at Mans Best Friend Kennel in Clearwater Florida when I adopted him. Poor Niko was waiting a whole year for his Forever Home until we met. He was the best behaved dog I could ever ask for, he always came when I called him and he followed me everywhere I went. Niko was so affectionate with everyone which is the reason I had him registered as a Therapy Dog with Project Pup, (Pets Uplifting People). I miss his companionship and love so much my heart aches. I pray to God he's happy and pain free now from his debilitating arthritis. Until we're together again Niko rest in peace.
