Nellie is a sweet, smart and cuddly  nine year-old, six pound Min Pin-Chihuahua mix.  Nellie gets around really well on three legs after after having her non-functioning atrophied hind leg removed.   She will do best in a home with no other pets, she's an easy going dog and is happy to cuddle with you or to burrow in her blanket and peek out at you and smile.  Nellie loves to lay in the sun or ride in the car and does well , she will bark to let you know she wants to go outside or is ready for her next meal!  She does best with very brief walks & is also happy to chill on the sofa with you,  she’s also happy to be carried or riding with you in her little tiny-dog carrier sling.

Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heart-worm, vaccinated (including rabies, if age appropriate) and micro-chipped.
