COURTESY LISTING: DOG IS STILL IN FAMILY HOME

Nellie is an absolutely sweet 4 year old Bloodhound/Lab mix who would love to be in a home where she can be the center of your loving attention. Want to be her best friend?! She will basically do anything for a treat. She loves people and gets so excited and could work on her manners when greeting others. She is house trained, knows basic commands, spayed, and up-to-date on all her shots. This precious girl is looking for her new favorite person to play fetch with, cuddle with during thunderstorms, and is willing to clean up any food you might drop on the floor!

Favorite things:
FOOD: She truly loves food and will do anything for a treat.

Squeaky Tennis Balls:
Nellie loves to play fetch and LOVES squeaky tennis balls. She has a few outside that she almost has constantly in her mouth, as well as a few inside that she loves for you to just toss up into the air so she can catch.

Car Rides:
Roll down the window for her on a car ride and she is in bliss.

Other Information:
She is completely housetrained and does not chew on anything. She was crate-trained for about the first two years that we had her but she now roams the house free and we have not had a single problem.
She knows basic commands: sit, down, stay, shake (paw)

She loves to play the “stay” game where you tell her to stay and back away from her and throw her ball as high up in the air as you can so she can try and catch it
\
She was allowed on our furniture for a while; however, she has not been allowed on our furniture for about 5 months now and has been doing really well with it.

She is afraid of fireworks and thunderstorms and becomes attached to you when this is happening or she goes into our basement where it is quieter. Her fear does not seem to bring out any chewing, bathroom issues, etc.

Ideal Home:
Nellie would love to be in a home where she can be the center of your loving attention. She needs a more quiet environment with no small children. She currently lives with other dogs, and does well with those who have confident personalities. Dogs her own size would be ideal! She would also love a home without a pooch, as she loves people more than anything!

About Paddy's Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Our primary goal is to find adoptive homes for these amazing animals that are located in shelters, rescues and foster homes. How does it work? You fill out a Paddy's Paws Application which will be submitted for approval for adoption to the Houston rescues. This application is used for Lola's Lucky Day and Houston K911, two 501c3 organizations. Why the same application for two different organizations? It helps streamline the process! There may not be a dog in Lola's for you, but there might be at K911...and you don't have to go through additional steps!

Our adoption process works a bit different than other shelters and rescues! Paddy's Paws serves as a coordinator for Houston rescues. We send out the applications, arrange homevisits and secure back up fosters for each of the dogs that will be transported here. Like most foster-based organizations, we do not have a facility and set up all appointments on an individual basis. Prior to any meet and greets, we require an approved application so we will need to go through all the steps before having you meet any of the available dogs here in Wisconsin.

The application, reference checks and homevisit are considered part of the general approval process and we cannot guarantee that a specific dog will still be available when you complete the process, but doing so will get you access to our "match making" service where you will have bios and pictures of multiple dogs that may be exactly what you're looking for! And, of course, there's always the possibility that the dog that sparked your initial interest will still be available!

Begin your application process here: http://bit.ly/1IIlGFS

We start with the completed application and then check references/vet records. The next step is a homevisit with family and one of our representatives. Once we have gathered all this information, we provide it to the Houston team. Then, we can set up a meet and greet with available dogs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All adopters must be approved through Paddy's Paws before meeting with adoptable animals. This includes a completed application and a homevisit.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are $250. Approval process requires a completed application and home visit prior to a meet and greet.
