My heart is breaking… Nico is flying free…

From a story I shared in 2014 about a Dog Argentino, known as Nico, whose story began even earlier, in 2009 with a picture that had become viral…

This photo is not unknown to animal lovers and rescuers. It captured the depressed and broken spirit of a suffering shelter dog. It’s Nico, the 6-year-old Dogo Argentino who’s picture appeared on Facebook July 2009 that immediately went viral and caught the attention of animal rescuers. He was malnourished, covered in sores, flea bitten, missing several teeth, covered with tumors, and deaf.

Sadly, today at 5:52pm Eastern time Nico passed on to the Rainbow Bridge.

Nico may not have had the best start in life but he found a family who love him, who cared for him and he raised awareness around the world.  Remember Nico not with his head hung low but as the proud and beautiful Dogo that emerged with TLC…
