Nelly is a 3 year old terrier mix. Some volunteers think she is a Portuguese Podengo. She is estimated to be 3 years old and was picked up as a stray just hours after she gave birth to the "Explorer Litter". The babies have found new homes and now momma is available for adoption. Nelly plays well with dogs bigger than her, and loves cuddle time with her humans. She is very protective in nature and should not be placed in a home with kids. She will need to be in a calm environment and be given time to bond with her new owner. She did not seem to care about the resident cat, but caution should be used. Nelly is not fully housebroke, but is catching on quickly. She weighs just 20 pounds which makes her the right size for any house. Nelly is spayed, vaccinated and micro chipped. Her adoption fee is $135. If you would like to apply to adopt Nelly or any of her rescue friends, please visit our website to complete and adoption application by clicking on the link below:
