OCT 4, 2016:
Newman, some kind of Shepherd mix we think, is a real cutie patootie who was born in July 2015. Only 1½ years old and weighing @40 pounds, Newman has short hair and is a nice portable size.
Newman LOVES affection and he falls in love with people in a HUGE WAY. He needs a very special home because of his new tendency to “resource guard” those people he loves. He is good with dogs but he doesn’t want to share “his people” with other people. Whoever adopts this sweet boy needs to understand resource guarding and be able to deal with it in a kind and instructive way.
GOOD WITH DOGS.
VOLUNTEERS and DONATIONS NEEDED. Visit our website for more info http://nelsonspca.org
