When he was just four weeks old, Nico’s father left him at a veterinary clinic. Nico is a loving German Shepherd puppy. The man was a dog breeder, and when he noticed that the little child couldn’t move his legs, he felt it was pointless to keep trying to help him and took him to the doctor to be put to death. Thankfully, a veterinary assistant agreed to look after him.
The veterinarian just placed Nico in a cage after he was abandoned, but when technician Mikayla Silkman arrived at work and seen Nico there, she sat on the side of his cage and sobbed uncontrollably because she knew that seeing him in that circumstance had broken him. the center.
Upon realizing that Nico would definitely be sacrificed, she felt she had to do all in her power to keep him alive.
Oh my God, we can’t put this puppy to sleep, I thought.
Mikayla contacted Trisha Malfitano, the creator of Perfect Imperfections, a rescue organization that assists dogs with severe problems. Trisha is a friend of Mikayla’s. Trisha quickly accepted when she was asked whether they could take care of Nico despite the fact that she was at the time in Canada.
Following a number of examinations, it was determined that Nico had straight legs syndrome, a condition marked by the absence of certain bones and connective tissue.
Prior to Trisha’s arrival, Mikayla cared for the dog at her home.
It was quite compact. He had a teddy bear appearance.
This puppy had a lot of activity, needed to be bottle-fed, and wanted to run about Trisha’s home.
He “crawled around” and yearned to be with the other dogs all the time.
A woman named April Addison sent Trisha a message expressing interest in adopting Nico.
Trisha had taken a like to Nico just as the vet tech had, but she realized that this was a wonderful chance for Nico to experience the comfort of a permanent home and that she could also make room for another dog in need.
