Retired search and rescue dog Nikita has died.
Nikita died on Friday at age 13. The dog was a retired member of the Effingham County K9 Search and Rescue Team.
Nikita was a member of the family of Kevin, Jane and Shane Bullard. She was retired in 2012 after working more than 50 searches, but still helped in training other dogs.
Search and Rescue Team members urge those who’d like to honor the memory of Nikita to be kind and take care of K9 companions, sponsor a search dog, or donate to an animal protection agency.
