Arrival Story: Tika was found as a stray in Georgia and brought to the local pound, along with her three puppies. The pups were euthanized, but Tika was rescued by the Humane Society of Northwest Georgia. I found her via Petfinder and knew, without even having met her, that she was mine. Since I live in MA, she was brought up on a pet transport service. The first time I ever saw her in person was when she was lifted out of a crate and placed in my arms, and the first thing she did was give me kisses!
Bio: Tika is very friendly and affectionate with people and good with other dogs. She can be leash reactive in certain situations, though--but we're working on that. She's got super high prey drive and goes postal whenever she sees a small furry critter...I think she's convinced that the squirrels are plotting against her. Tika also comes to work with me every day, since I work at a doggy day camp. I believe she may be a pom/sheltie mix, but that's just my current best guess.
