Osteosarcoma Survivor Tripawd Escape Artist Does Just Fine
Hi meet our beautiful courage Nikki. Nikki is an 8 yr old Lab Ridgeback mix that we adopted 8yrs ago on the 4th of July along with his sister Tessie. Nikki and Tessie have given us so much love and happiness words can’t even express.
Two years ago February we were given the heartbreaking news that Nikki had osteosarcoma in his right front leg and would need amputation and chemo. We were so afraid that he wouldn’t make it but we had to try whatever we could to keep our precious Nikki.
They all know Nikki, as he was the first dog to open the door and escape from the chemo treatment room and gave them all a run to catch him. When they told me this story I knew my Nikki would be just fine.
He is doing great and is still cancer free and I can’t thank our doctors enough.
