An abandoned dog is preparing for a new home after animal rescue groups spent days trying to find her when she was spotted wandering Detroit with a stuffed toy.
"Everybody was posting pictures in Detroit of who they were calling Nicholas, now Nikki because it’s a female, and of course started tagging Heather, South Lyon Murphy - can you help trap this dog?"
said Katrina Weaver, the owner of It Is Pawzable Dog Training.
Nikki's owner recently died, and she was left to wander the streets with her favorite toy.
One neighbor who had been feeding Nikki while she was homeless is now working with the rescues to find the dog a home.
As Nikki receives her care, the animal workers are making sure she is ready to head to her foster home.
I groomed their dog Murphy, who was on the streets for months," said Kristina Thompson, the owner of Sugar Mutts Grooming. »
