A volunteer writes: Nysha is one of the gentlest dogs I’ve ever met, a perfect little lady with manners as lovely as her elegant looks and a winning smile that brings out the best in everyone she meets. To look at her you’d think she had the world on a string but sometimes life just isn’t fair. One day she’s being treated like a Princess and the next, her happy home is broken up by an eviction and Nysha’s taking a one-way trip to AC&C. Her family loved her very much and left us plenty of notes on what a good girl she is and all her likes, dislikes and talents. She’s a very outgoing dog and extremely friendly and affectionate, even with strangers. When she plays with adults she’s excited and jumps up to meet them but with children she’s more relaxed and very gentle and tolerant of their actions, even protective at times. Nysha meets fellow pups with friendly enthusiasm and has spent time playing with another dog who was much smaller than her but we’re told she does not like cats so a feline-free home would be best. She likes to run in the park, play with stuffed toys and Kongs and when the day is done she’ll sleep in her own bed or bring her blanket over to her parent’s bed – how cute is that?!! If left alone Nysha is well behaved and just hangs out in her crate with the door open. She’s a very bright girl and knows commands for sit, down, stay, give paw, eat (she waits for the command before starting!), go, stop and lay down, several of which she showed off for me during our time together. A great leash walker who is perfectly attuned to her partner, Nysha does her business the minute we step outside the door and right over the drain no less! Her family had nothing but praise for this amazing youngster and she’s more than won me over after just one date. I’d go so far as to say it’s pretty much impossible not to be charmed by sweet Nysha but you’re welcome to try – come on in and ask to meet the prettiest, most well-behaved and best-reviewed dog at the Care Center and prepare to fall in love!
