Dog found wandering streets of Detroit with stuffed animal gets rescued

It was a heartbreaking sight: a German Shepherd was spotted wandering around on her own in the streets of Detroit, with nothing but her favorite stuffed animal to keep her company.
But now, this beautiful dog is safe and sound after being rescued.

According to FOX 2 Detroit, locals saw the dog wandering the streets and, although she is a female, they called her “Nicholas.” Neighbors reported that the dog became homeless after her owner passed away.

As the dog’s story spread, a number of local groups — including It Is Pawzable Dog Training, South Lyon Murphy Lost Animal Recovery, Sugar Mutts Dog Grooming, and Almost Home Animal Rescue — came together to trap the dog and get her to safety.

“Everybody comes together and works as a team, which is so amazing,” Katrina Weaver, the owner of It Is Pawzable, told FOX 2.

Thankfully, their rescue mission was a success: Almost Home No Kill Rescue reported on May 3 that the dog had successfully been trapped and was now in their care. They renamed “Nicholas” “Nikki,” because she’s a female dog.

“Only good things from here and onto a better life!” the rescue wrote on Facebook. “Thanks for all your support Nikki will now get to be in a loving home!”

There is one complication: Nikki reportedly has heartworm, which will require four weeks of treatment. Nikki is now taking it easy, receiving medication and going on leash walks. When she is recovered, the rescue will begin looking for her new home.

In the meantime, Nikki is in great hands — and yes, she still has her beloved stuffy with her ❤️

Nikki is safe and sound. She's resting comfortably with her stuffy. More love to come ❤️it’s been a long day…..
