Nellie came from a shelter in KY. She was given up by her owners when they no longer wanted her.
Nellie can be skittish so she would need time to warm up to someone before they just walked on up to her and stuck their hand in her face or tried to pick her up. If you allow her time to warm up to you, she’s fine. This is the case with many dachshunds. Nellie loves to play with other dachshunds and we want her to have a fenced in yard and another younger dog to play with. If you have that and the time to socialize her more, Nellie just may be the little girl for you! Someone that would be home to help her with her housebreaking skills would also help. She’s a great dog and we just want to give her a second chance at a better home. The food they were feeding her was not the best and her coat reflects that, but we are feeding her a high quality grain free food and we think her coat will greatly improve.
If you have any questions about Nellie or live close enough to visit, please fill out an online adoption application today.
=============== Information for all dogs/adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 Fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please visit the Adoption Information. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your 'new friend' get up and down the East Coast or up and down the West Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
