We’re sure you’re familiar with the song “This Old Man,” the one with the lyrics, “Nik Nak paddywhack give a dog a bone.” Well, you’re about to meet a dog named Nik Nak that certainly deserves all the bones he can get.
Before Nik Nak was rescued, the poor boy had a very rough start to life. He had lived with owners that were not worthy of his love and affection. In fact, they were people that should have never owned a dog in the first place.
