Nicole is one of 9 greyhounds GALT received from a Fort Worth Animal Control cruelty case. She is a tiny, 2-year-old (her age is estimated) fawn female who currently weighs in at 35 pounds. She is being treated for tick-borne diseases and a huge load of intestinal parasites. Her health is being closely monitored by Dr. Christy Soileau of VCA Preston Park Animal Hospital. Nicole is thin and has patchy skin from her tick infestation, but her body and spirit are recovering with the help of good food, a soft bed, and TLC from her foster parents. She is very timid around people and will need time to learn to trust. Nicole has not yet been tested with cats or small animals. Just like the other rescued dogs, she is positive to babesia as well as ehrlichia at extremely high titers.
The special medical treatment cost needed by Nicole is why the Miss Mesa Fund was established. If you would like to help with Nicole's care, please take a moment to make a donation to the fund. You can use a credit card, check or PayPal by making the donation through the GALT GreytStore. You can also write a check (Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, P.O.

Nicole has really taken to toys and loves to collect them and play the 'all of these are mine' game. She can also really get a good head tilt going when her foster mom makes funny noises. She's eating well and is such a good girl that she hasn't had a single accident in the house. She is less skittish around her foster parents and feels possessive enough about ‘her’ house to put up quite a bark and howl when anyone comes to the door. She’s going to be quite the character when she is feeling good!
Nicole is often found in the same cage as Max; we figure they must be a comfort to one another. Nicole is extremely shy, but she is slowly coming out of her shell.
