My personality

My story

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

My name is Nyssa which means New Beginnings. I started out with mange, skinny and my eyes were sealed together with infection.
Then CPR rescue found me and saved me. ❤️! Oh goodness how my world has changed!!!
I am 100 % well, healthy and happy!
I love everyone! I play great with other playful happy dogs around my size.
I also have learned about cuddling and giving kisses which makes me so happy and humans say I am precious because of it.
My first visit loose in the house, I thought the coffee table was my throne so I stood on it and felt special. But my foster parents explained that is not a good behavior or my throne. I have slowly learned to act more mannerly and humble.
I love my Nyla bone to put me to sleep. Don’t tell anyone but it is my pacifier, as you call it in the human world. Oh, and let’s talk about my golden eyes!🐶
My foster mom and dad said I am the best crate dog they have ever had! I go in quietly and let them cook, eat, clean and watch tv. They give me a treat also so I will go in and out of the crate any time they allow 🐕.
Bottom line, I am wanting my own person or family since I know that is going to be my forever destination. I sure hope someone that sees this says I am worthy to be loved by them. I promise to love you more. My foster mom will gladly talk to you about me. She really loves me.

Nyssa is spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and current on flea/tick and heartworm preventative. This dog has tested negative for heartworms. The adoption fee is $450 if your adoption is prepaid and final prior to your dog's arrival. An additional $50 will be charged on dogs that are picked up from our Southbury CT adoption center, adopted at an event, or foster home. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with CT HB 5368.

An additional $100 fee will be added for any dogs picked up from the Woburn MA quarantine facility. This additional fee is necessary in order to comply with MA Order 405-CD-12 and Order 1-AHO-05.
