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

*Puppies too young for rabies or final boosters will need to be vaccinated post-adoption at the expense of the adopter.
*All adopters must be at least 21 years of age.
*We will only place dogs with indoor ONLY homes.
*A home visit and application are required prior to adoption.
*We do check home owners insurance or with your landlord to ensure pit bull type dogs are accepted in your home or apartment.

IMPORTANT: Many homeowner's insurance companies have breed blacklists or "dangerous dogs" lists which include, but are not limited to, pit bulls, American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Akitas, American Bulldogs, Chows and wolf-hybrids and WILL NOT insure you if they reside in your home or may cancel your insurance if you add a dog of these breeds to your home. If you rent, landlords may also have these same breed restrictions due to their insurance policies. Please check your homeowner's insurance policy or ask your landlord regarding breed discrimination before submitting this application to adopt a pit bull type dog.
