Hey y'all it's me, Nellie! I love running around at my foster house. I can chase the squirrels and even almost get 'em! I'm pretty lazy but very easy going. I listen to my Foster Mom real well. I have a pretty high prey drive, so no cats, squirrels, and little dogs for me. I like to just hang out and check out what everyone is up too. I follow my Foster Dad around whenever he comes in and hangs with me.
This beauty arrived at Merit with a leg injury that was being treated when it was discovered ..... she was PREGNANT!! Nellie gave birth to 7 adorable puppies called the Drag Queen Litter in mid March. After raising her pups and sending them off to their forever homes Nellie is ready for her happily ever after ... will that be with you?
Nellie is current on her shots and has been spayed. For more information or to submit an adoption application, please visit our website at www.mpbf.org
