For Nico, a white Dogo Argentino, life has been nothing but pain. Malnourished and week from a life of dog fighting, being caged in this dog shelter looked like one final defeat. For many dogs that would be the last stop, but for Nico it was just a start of his new life.
After seeing a picture of him one woman decided he deserved a death more respectful than his life had been but when she went to take him to the vet to be euthanized, something happened that changed his life forever. Since then, once depressed fighter has become a symbol of perseverance and victory of love over violence.
