Nida Update: surgery #3 to remove quills

Nida with her AHS bud Jenna :)
Remember Nida .... this precious girl arrived on an emergency transport from Leech Lake Reservation on Sunday, 2/3/13 with her brother Newt with a face full of quills. Her brother Newt had quills on his face and throughout his body. We are truly grateful to our partner the Animal Humane Society/AHS for taking Nida and her brother Newt in and for immediately taking them into surgery to remove the quills. Due to the severity of the amount of quills in Newt's body, we unfortunately lost Newt in surgery (RIP sweet boy). Nida, however, recovered and continues to win over hearts with her charming, friendly, loveable personality. She LOVES to give hugs and kisses ...

Nida spent time in a foster home to give her body time to heal and recover from the quills. Oftentimes, quills that are beneath the surface of the skin will migrate and fester out over time. Nida has had two surgeries since she arrived on 2/3 to remove additional quills that migrate outwards. On Thursday she was pulled from the adoption floor to undergo surgery to remove quills in her front leg. We hope the last of the quills are out!! :)

She is recovering and will hopefully be back up for adoption soon! Keep checking the AHS website!! She will make some lucky individual or family very, very happy!!
Nida LOVES to give kisses!!

"and yes friends, this is how you give Humans kisses!!" ~ love, Nida
