Nellie's Info...

Nellie's Story...
Nellie is an adorable 6-7 week old pup who weighs around 2 pounds. Nellie is an amazingly curious, snuggly, loving little girl. She gets along so well with the resident dogs and loves to be held and snuggled. Because of Nellie's small stature, she will need to be adopted by a family with children 6 yrs. of age or older. We are estimating Nellie will be 10-12 pounds when full grown. She will be an amazing forever friend to any family.

Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom & dad are!), we are guessing on breed and size when grown.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.

If you are interested in meeting this dog or pup please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at www.safehandsrescue.org under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday, April 6th at Fetch Delivers Warehouse at 2303 Kennedy St. NE from noon - 2 pm.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nellie, a Minneapolis Papillon/Chihuahua puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Papillon/Chihuahua for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Papillon/Chihuahua puppy from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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 Papillon/Chihuahua breeders who help with Papillon/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
