Nibi has a new best friend :)

We received the following photo of Nibi this morning from Peggy of Home At Last. The sweet boy apparently thinks his new friend Gretchen makes a wonderful pillow :)

There is definitely truth to the saying ... a picture is worth a thousands word. Nibi, the peace and calm on your face says it all. And thank you Gretchen, for watching over Nibi and providing him with a safe place to rest :)

On Saturday, 2/16 we received the following from Peggy: "Nibi had a great past few days. On Thursday he went to work at the Wildlife Science Center and spent some time glaring at the mountain lions and wolves. Friday he stayed at home with Megan and played outside with dogs for the first time! It is so fun to watch him gain comfort every day. He greeted me and Mark at the gate enthusiastically when we got home, and took my hand in his mouth for the walk down to the house...his way of holding hands. He will go back to see Dr. Dave this week. I think his medical team will be thrilled to see how well he is doing."

Thank you Peggy, Mark and Megan (Home At Last) and Dr. Dave of South Shore Veterinary Hospital for all you have done for this sweet boy.

    1. Hi Slone. Thanks for your inquiry. Leech Lake Legacy transports dogs and cats from the Leech Lake Impound to our partner shelters, rescues and sanctuaries. Nibi was transferred to a sanctuary where he will spend the rest of his days. Thank you for considering a rescued animal, we wish you all the best.

  2. How sweet! My dogs have liked to hold my hand that way, too--all were/are shepherd mixes. Glad Nibi is doing better. Any updates?
