Arrival Story: After Milly died I swore I would never have another dog, then Nika happened!! as time wore on I realised I could never replace Milly but that life without a dog was no life at all I thought I'd go for an older dog this time - no more dreaded puppy training!!! I had a look at a Border Collie Rescue Centre on the internet with this in mind then thought to myself that if I found a cute baby girl puppy 8 - 10 weeks old then there'd be no stopping me! Welcome Nika! (prounounced Neeka - its Russian meaning is "belongs to God" Its Greek meaning is Bringer of Victory). After looking for rescue centres in the UK I found Carol, the lady who owns the Animal Samaritan Centre & Border Collie Rescue in Shrewsbury, I phoned her and we chatted for ages and then she said I have just the dog for you - shes 8 weeks old and came in yesterday - this I really feel was a sign from my precious Milly. My son, dad and I drove 140 mile round trip to collect her, I had no idea what she looked like but I knew she would be mine! When we got to the centre I saw a young girl holding a beautiful Border Collie Pup, it was love at first sight!! Despite Nika smelling like a cow pat, I just couldn't put her down! Nika took to us immediately, we signed the papers and home we came, Nika settled in so quickly, she is a cheeky madam and such a pure delight.
Bio: Nika is a beatiful Border Collie, she has one blue eye and one brown eye, she has white eyelashes on her brown eye. She loves having her belly rubbed and gets so excited when you tell her what a good girl she is for doing as shes told, her little tail wags so fast its a blur...

http://www.dogster.com/forums/Plus_Friendly/threa d/511922 - This is the link to the postiung on the forum that lead me to this petition. I feel so strongly that this poor dog is being unfairly treated and now mistreated by the kennels he has been placed in.
Nika will be 8 months old this month. She has grown so much since we were last on Dogster. Shes a wonderful dog with a great character. She still has her favourtie pink sheep that is the only toy left intact! She plays constantly and loves going for long walks. When we come back from walks she runs upstairs and jumps in the bath to have her muddy legs washed! All day every day its play time for Nika then of an evening its time to snuggle up and relax. We spent Christmas in Northumberland, Nika loved playing on the beach and depsite a close shave throwing herself off a cliff and landing 20ft below chasing one of her obsessions - Birds we all had a great time. Nika is so funny playing with her toys she swings them round like lunatic then throws them at us to throw for her. She spends every day with my parents whilst I am at work and gets spoilt rotton!
