Nellie
Female - 8 months old

Hi, my name is Nellie! I’m about five months old. It is quite possible I might be the most exceptional pup you’ll meet! Aside from my adorable floppy ears, I have a great personality and am very patient as I search for my forever home.

My foster’s found me abandoned at an apartment building. The person handling me said he found me wandering the streets of North Minneapolis and planned to let me wander back out on the street until my fosters scooped me up!

I’m potty and crate trained and have no problems sleeping the night in my crate. Some of the commands I know are “sit”, “down”, “leave it”, “come”, and “no”. I am eager to please and therefore, probably a good candidate for schooling to learn more.

One of my fosters has a less than one-year-old large fluffy pup that I loved to play with.  My current foster has a stubborn male cat whose heart I won over in a matter of days by respecting his very apparent boundaries!  In fact, my current foster (a once self-proclaimed crazy cat lady) never owned or fostered a dog before, but within minutes of first meeting me the day I was abandoned, she could not resist and teamed up with Save-a-Bull.

Although I have not lived with any young children, I don’t seem startled or unsettled by much, and seem to adapt pretty well to different settings. I enjoy chasing balls, fetching sticks, going for long walks, and chewing on my stuffed animals. Sometimes I like to play tug-of-war with the rope ball, especially when I make my foster lose grip and fall. I don’t laugh too loud at her when she does that, but am sweet and will either give her a comforting lick or a gentle gnaw. I also pretend to enjoy my foster’s singing to me by perking up and flopping my ears around.

Overall, I seem to get along with the people and animals I’ve met. I cannot wait to settle in and continue to show how much love and loyalty I have to offer my forever home!

Nellie's spay date is August 25th, so she'll be ready for her forever home on August 27th. 🙂
