My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

My name is Nyssa. Isn't my name pretty?! It means "new beginning," because that's just what I got when I met the WAAL warriors! I was found with a bad ouchie on my neck. Somebody let my collar create a sore and it grew into my skin. The worst part? My scars told my foster mama this was at least the third time! I have lots of furry siblings at my foster home and I love them all!! I think the cats are a little strange, so I like to just check them out from time to time. Not too close! But my doggy sisters? We're besties!! I love having a lot of doggy friends, but as long as you have at least one, I'll be happy! I am learning all kinds of new things at my house. I already know how to sit and lay down and foster mama says I have good kennel manners. I don't potty inside and I'm learning what leash manners are! I love humans!! Pets, scratches, kisses, hugs, SNUGGLES!!! Since I had a ruff past, I worry that my people will leave me. Sometimes I just need lots of reassurance that you love me. I promise I'll love you right back! I can't wait for another new beginning with you! To meet me complete the application at
