Meet Nellie!

Nellie came in as a stray, so her history is unknown. In a new place, with new people she can be quite shy. At our shelter however, she has blossomed into a wonderful canine companion.

Not knowing her history we’re not sure what socializing she received as a pup or what experiences she may have gone through. What we do know is she is shy in new places and with new people. We’re working on helping her learn to trust and build her confidence. Nellie like a lot of dogs as they get older, is dog selective. She needs slow introductions and if she prefers not to play or interact with them that’s ok. It’s like humans as we get older we are more selective with whom we are friends.🙂

Ideally, she would thrive in a setting with a secure backyard and an active house-hold. In addition, she will benefit from a household that can provide continued socialization. A stable and loving environment will foster her growth and happiness. Nellie would do great in a home with breed experience, patience, and time to help her build her confidence and a home where there isn’t a lot of unfamiliar people or dogs.
