She's beautiful!! I assume that she was named after the direwolf from Game of Thrones, right?
She was! She came with the name, but my other dog is named Arya (Nymeria’s owner in GoT. She’s also a rescue that came with the name) so it certainly felt kismet.
Is the difference in her coat between the before and after due to nutritional issues?
Excellent question! Yes and no. Wolfdogs, in general, take a bit longer to fully develop/mature than regular dogs. It's not uncommon for them to get fuller as they age. I do think this plays a part in how she's developed.
However, Nymeria is special needs with a disease called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, or EPI for short. EPI is fairly nuanced, but it basically means she is incapable of digesting food on her own and requires special food, medications, and enzymes to live. When we rescued her, her foster mama had her EPI moderately stable, but hadn't found the right food/medication/enzyme combination to get her completely stable. Through more trial and error, my husband and I found the combo that works for her right now and she's very stable! She's been stable for about two years, so that definitely has a large part to play in her development, as well.
Wow, she’s beautiful! Part wolf, right?
Thank you! Yes, she is a low content wolfdog. (Fancy way of saying she’s genetically more dog than wolf).
You done good

So many of these dogs got sent to pounds. owners didn't understand how big of an undertaking this type of doggo is.
