Warriors Choice Foundation Announces Fundraiser For Hero K9

The bedrock of Warriors Choice foundation’s (WCF) service dog breeding program is a loveable Belgian Malinois named Nefertiti de Alphaville Bohemia, AKA Nika Rose. She’s a warrior in need of our help.

Through Nika Rose, Warriors Choice has expedited the process of providing genuine working service dogs to our nation’s combat veterans. Nika has birthed three litters of puppies, 18 of whom have been successfully trained, paired, and placed as working service dogs in various capacities across the United States. 

Now, this essential lady, who gave this wonderful gift to veterans with disabilities, needs our help in return. Nika needs a neurologist and an MRI in order to accurately diagnose her condition to determine whether she is suffering from a stroke or a ruptured disk. Then, depending on the outcome from the imaging results, Nika would undergo surgery. Veterinarians predict it would take three months of physical therapy to recover after surgery.

“Nika is still unable to stand, walk, or go to the bathroom on her own. Our staff must rotate her every four hours to prevent the development of sores,” said Warriors’ Choice Founder Anthony Longo. “With her inability to walk or urinate on her own, our volunteers must manually express her bladder at least three times per day. Volunteers must prop her up using pillows and blankets, and she must be provided food and water by hand.” 

Warriors Choice seeks to raise $20,000 for Nika’s care via the crowdsourcing funding platform, GoFundMe, and direct donations to the foundation’s website www.warriorschoice.org
