Nellie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Nellie's Story...
Nellie (a.k.a. Anna) is a sweet little sable girl. She is well behaved; and good with everyone she has met, including my granddaughter. She loves her foster brothers and gets along well with the household cats.

Nellie loves attention and being petted. Nellie does great on a leash and loves her walks. She enjoys running off leash in her foster parents' fenced in field, too, as well as playing with her foster brothers.
She is a runner, though, and I don't let her off leash unless we are in the fenced in part of the yard, or the field, which is also fenced.

Nellie has an "Elvis" lip, as she lost a part of it due to removal of a cancerous growth when she was found as a stray. Nellie doesn't mind being brushed, and doesn't mind having what few teeth she has brushed either!

She is adaptive to her surroundings, will be quiet when all is settled, and playful when the others are. She is great in the car. She is spayed and current on vaccines. This is a really lovable collie who will make a great companion.

​This sweet girl is being fostered in central Ohio.
Can you see it in your heart to give her the Furever Home she deserves?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nellie, a Powell Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Powell, or seeking a Collie dog from a breeder in Powell.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Powell already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Powell breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie breeders who help with Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Powell paves the way for another one to be saved.
