More About Nyx

Nyx is a very special senior Cairn Terrier surrendered at age 15 to the local shelter. She is a sweet little wheaten girl in the Col, Potter program where she initially spent 2 weeks at a local vet to update all of her shots and assess her overall condition. She has liver and heart issues which have now been controlled by medicines and supplements costing about $65 month. She also has incontinence issues which can be helped by short walks every 2-3 hours and first thing in the morning. It helped by panties for the in-between times when you may be away. She doesn’t mind them but would love a home where she goes on regular walks. She is great about settling into a routine.

She has been at my home for 2 months and has greatly improved since I got her from the vet. She rarely barks and only if my puppy poodle wants to play and she doesn’t! During the day she walks around the house and lanai and then sleeps. She has a great appetite and is now at a good weight for her medical issues. I am very careful not to give treats and give in to her desire to eat more. Once you have a routine she will wander close to the food place when it’s time.

She is a delight. A quiet home to live out her golden days would be just heaven for her–is that you?!
