• Animal ID#: A305720
  • Dog Name: Nell
  • Dog Sex: Spayed Female
  • Approximate Age: 2 years
  • This gorgeous gal came in with a severely embedded collar – a wound that is still healing. She is absolutely lovely despite the cruelty she endured. She’s so sweet, enjoys affection, but isn’t overly pushy about it. She politely leans in while asking for pets. We suspect she would be OK with mannerly children. At this time, she’d do best as the only dog in a home. She’s just a marvelous girl who truly deserves a loving home!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
