Default Canarian Weekly: Nyssa

K9 animal news

LAST week, this lovely girl was dumped in our fenced area over the road, despite there being a warning sign saying this area contained aggressive dogs.

Thankfully, they didn’t harm her, but the poor thing was terrified. It took several attempts to gain her trust, so that we could move her from the corner of the fenced area into a comfortable kennel over the road.

Once we had looked at her more closely, we could clearly see that she had been used for breeding, because her nipples were very large and deformed. And she was absolutely covered in fleas! We made the immediate decision to bath her with anti-parasite shampoo, in an attempt to make her more comfortable.

The water ran red from the amount of flea dust on her skin. In addition to this, she had developed several lesions on her legs and back end, from constantly sitting and lying on a hard surface. She was also starving, and practically skin and bones!

It was clear that she had been used and abused, and then thrown out like rubbish! Nevertheless, she is now in good hands, and, once we had relieved her of the pesky fleas and dirt, we could already see a difference in her behaviour.

It has now been a week since she arrived, and she is very different. Slowly, but surely, she is gaining confidence, and, every now and then, even wags her tail. Nyssa is a Greek name, and symbolises new beginnings.
