Hi, my name is Nellie! I am a beautiful 4 1/2 year old lemon and white female, and I am looking for my forever home.
I am a very loving girl, and in fact I like to think of myself as a lap dog — a 60 pound lap dog. My favorite thing to do is to climb up on my person’s lap and then squirm around until the next thing you know, I’m in prime belly rub position — while still sitting on them!
I love spending time with people and being loved on, and I also enjoy going for walks where I like to do a lot of stopping to sniff around. There are just so many interesting smells in the world, you know? I can be a little shy when I first meet people, but once I know you, I love you.
I am crate trained, and I usually come when I’m called, that is when I’m not following you around anyway.
I do have some fear aggression towards other dogs sometimes. I’m good with some, not good with others, and sometimes I will growl and snap, but I have never actually bitten. For this reason, I would do best in a home where I am the only dog. I also would do best in a home where there are no small children and where older children aren’t too rambunctious. I do try my best to get away from children I don’t know who are being too loud or who try to approach me too quickly.
I also do have some separation anxiety. I really don’t want to be far away from my people.
Do you think you might be the family for me? Do you think you could be patient with me, maybe do some training with me? Do you think you’re up for a life full of me on your lap? If so, please fill out an adoption application and mention me — Nellie!
