We can't imagine the sad life that Nessa lived prior to coming to us in November, 2019, after she was found tied up in a junkyard in the city.  She was severely malnourished and sickly, and she looked as if she'd given up.  But despite being neglected and forgotten for such a long time, this 6 year old bull terrier mix couldn't be any sweeter, more loving, or more forgiving.  Nessa has since recovered from her terrible ordeal and has put on much-needed weight.  She is such a quiet, gentle, affectionate girl.  She makes friends with new people instantly and will lean against you, gazing up at you and wiggling her tail, hoping you'll give her lots of attention.  Nessa is perfectly behaved.  She walks well on a leash, takes treats gently, and sits nicely when asked.  She will need to be the only pet in the home, simply because she gets jealous of other pets getting attention.  Nessa would be so grateful if you'd give her a chance, and give her the good home she's missed out on for so long.  File#29391  11/26/19
