Facts about Nellie

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Meet Nellie! This little lady truly loves her people. She's sweet, affectionate, and gentle. At 6 years young, she is in excellent shape and still loves long walks, hikes, car rides, and exploring. She has a wonderful temperament in the home, good manners, is house-trained and a pro at using a doggy door. She is indifferent when it comes to dogs. She is OK if they are there and OK if they are not, a very good thing. Her true passion is being side by side with her person. She has beautiful coloring and a soft coat. She gently leans in and asks for affection and she very well may consider herself a lap dog. She grew up thinking she is human so she'd like a spot on the couch please! Right next to you. She has been in one home for most of her life so she will need a transition into her new home. Getting adjusted to a brand new family after being with one for so long might be a little stressful. Once she associates you with walks, love, and attention... she's all in and will love you with all her heart, pinky promise. Children OK but no kitties please. Age 6 years. 55 lbs.

About Canine Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Canine Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary (CRCS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to helping dogs of all breeds and ages recover from trauma such as abuse, neglect, long-term confinement, and other special circumstances. Our primary focus is the rescue, recovery and placement of at-risk dogs. We provide refuge and a second chance for dogs needing at new start by offering a recovery program, thorough screening for best home placement for dog and adopter, and behavior help and support for the life of the dog.

Dogs that come into our care are victims of abuse, domestic violence, dog fighting, and laboratory research. We also take in dogs that have suffered from neglect, hoarding and puppy mill cases and dogs that have endured long term confinement or isolation. We are a support for rescues and shelters, taking in dogs that have been waiting for extended periods to find a home, dogs that have been returned multiple times and dogs that are struggling in the shelter environment due to fear and lack of socialization.

CRCS was founded in 2011 and began as a 100% grassroots organization powered by handful of dedicated volunteers. In November of 2013, we moved into our own facility. With 11,200 sq ft of indoor space and over 5 acres of outdoor space, we are currently working on a capitol campaign to purchase the property and transform every inch into a beautiful campus specifically geared towards recovery for our canine friends.
