Won't you think about adopting me?
Nyssa is one of several dogs who were found on a ranch in the Texas Hill Country. We can only speculate, but we believe that the property owners sold their livestock, moved away, and left the dogs to fend for themselves. Nyssa's mom Lydia is VERY friendly, but Lydia's pups (two generations) were completely unsocialized, so we're guessing they may have been born after the people moved.
Nyssa seems content whether living inside the house or in our horse barn. She has learned to use a dog door that is always open (no rubber flap), and if she can't get outside, she will use puppy pads inside the house. She definitely likes a good bed, whether that's a human bed or a plush dog bed. She has made progress walking on a leash, though she definitely still needs work on that and could benefit from some training sessions at home. It will take love, patience, and time to bring Nyssa out of her shell. But she is such a sweet dog that we know it will be worth the effort.
