Nelson is back in OH and will be going in on Nov 9th  for another dental cleaning probably with extractions again.  Poor little guy won't have many teeth left.    He could use a sponsor to help pay for his dental.

Nelson had his dental yesterday   His second since he has been in rescue.   Yesterday had to have the remaining teeth removed so he has no teeth now.


He's doing well...........friendly, happy and active.  He eats very well!  His only issue is housebreaking, which he just doesn't seem to understand.  He does use pee pads..  It takes him awhile to settle down in a lap for a cuddle and he's a little wary of strangers, but not for long. 


Sweet little Nelson is a timid boy with so much love to give!  He was very matted
and underweight when he was rescued, but his fluffy white coat is growing back
nicely following his emergency 'haircut' and he's starting to put on some much
needed weight.  Nelson is making friends with the other dogs in his foster home
and is very curious about the kitty!  He is still nervous about being picked up but
sooooo happy when he realizes that is means he's going outside or spendingtime cuddling on a lap! 
He loves to run around in a fenced yard and is learning
to come when he is called, and he is excited about going for walks on a leash
but needs to learn some leash manners. 

A home without small children or big dogs (though older, respectful children and doggie playmates close to his own size would be fine), and he needs to have
a securely fenced yard where he can be free to run and play!

About WolfSpirit's Toy Breed Puppymill Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small not for profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization dedicated to rescuing and re-homing toy breed dogs.
We accept mostly Chihuahua's, Pomeranians, Miniature Schnauzers, Brussels Griffons, Chinese Cresteds, Papillons and Yorkies,( but not limited to these breeds).
We take in the old, the special needs and the young.

They include retired breeders, kennel close outs, and sometimes puppies, that, for some reason were returned or rejected by pet stores.

Although our main focus is helping any ex breeder in need, we also pull from kill shelters and when we have the foster space available will help with owner surrenders.

We consist of families and individuals who foster in our homes since we do not have a physical shelter. We do not receive any government funding nor outside fundraisers. We rely entirely on donations and our own fundraisers to support our efforts. Without our caring and dedicated volunteers and foster homes we would not be able to help these little survivors out of the mills and offer them a chance at a normal life. There are no salaries here for what we do. We get paid with sloppy kisses and a warm body to snuggle up with while they are with us.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an online adoption application for those interested in adopting. We check vet and personal references. Approved adopters must sign an adoption contract. Our adoption donations vary according to each dog. These depend on the expenses that we incur for that particular dog.
