Nelly

D.O.B. - Approximately 2013

Located in Erin, Ontario

Sweet, loving Nelly the senior, a fluffy mix, was found as a stray. The humane society contacted us to bring her in.

Nelly is great with children and people in general. She loves to be loved.

She is somewhat of a food lover. She must be fed separately, as with most dogs, because she does not want to share her food.

She is not good on stairs but that is probably because she has never been exposed to them in her eight years of life. Positive-reinforcement training will help her. It's important to grow a dog's confidence.

She has some separation anxiety so a home who is willing to work with her is ideal. Or, a home where people are home most of the time.

A regular exercise routine for her will be helpful to keep the weight off of her. We are not sure if she is house-trained or not. This is something that is easily fixed if she is not. Again, a regular routine will help. And, keeping her in a pen or leashed to you when you are home. If you see her about to do her business, take her outside, and praise her when she does do it. Crating her at night until she is house-trained is recommended.

A secure fully-fenced yard is a must.

Please complete the Adoption Application if you think she would be a good fit for your family.
