Family Dog: Neva

By The Bark Editors, January 2015, Updated June 2021

Neva, a lovely combo of Scottish Deerhound, Irish Wolfhound and perhaps Pointer, spent three months in a Kansas shelter before being adopted in 2012 by Alexandra Judycki. Alexandra drove six hours each way to get Neva and bring her home to New Mexico. When Alexandra and her fiancé Linton were married in Telluride, Colo., Neva was their regal maid of honor (see photo). Currently, Neva serves as ambassador to the Red River Ski Area. According to the Judyckis, “Neva lights up our heart every day, and has become our greatest love.” She even has her own hashtag: #nevadog.
