Nina is a 12-week-old fawn female born approximately June 8, 2011. She was seized from a Fort Worth home along with her mother Faith and 7 other puppies on July 6, 2011. The eight puppies varied in weight from 3.5 to 4.9 pounds and now weigh between 13 and 16 pounds! Rachel was covered in ticks and fleas, which were thankfully mostly dead by the time GALT received her from FWACC. She has been treated for intestinal parasites and respiratory infection, and is not showing any signs of long-term ill-effects from her intial neglect. Nina has smooth sailing ahead of her!
Nina was named by Rita Wulke: From its Hebrew origins, Nina means "grace" - beauty of form, motion and manner. I can't think of a more fitting description of a greyhound. Also, I wish a life of grace for Nina and all the others and their mama, Faith. It's the very least that they deserve after their rather hard start to life.
