Nellie's Story...
Beautiful gentle Nellie was, along with her babies, an owner surrender at the local high kill shelter. All of her babies were adopted into loving homes, and now it's Nellie's turn!

Nellie, is a sweet and love able hound mix that has been in foster since May. She was living out in the woods, unsupervised and was allowed to have multiple litters. When she was rescued, she came with 5 pups that had not had any human contact along with a female from a previous litter. She has since learned to live in a house, walk on a leash and a few basic commands. She is sweet, and affectionate. She is quiet, gentle and has never shown any aggression toward cats, dogs or people. She is great around kids because she is very calm. She has overcome her fear of cars and can now ride comfortably.

Nellie has a quiet, calming way about her. She is housetrained, crate trained, leash trained and knows basic commands. She is not a demanding dog, she is content to just hang out with the people she loves.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nellie, a Carlisle Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Carlisle, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Carlisle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Carlisle already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Carlisle breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Carlisle paves the way for another one to be saved.
