Nellie is a lively nine year-old, six pound Min-Pin-Chihuahua mix.  She has adapted so well to being a tri-pawed dog after having her non-functioning hind leg recently removed.   When she is not enjoying the sun, she can be found with her foster pup siblings,  lounging together, playing together, and eating together.

Nellie enjoys rides in the car and is fully house trained, she will bark to let you know she wants to go outside or is ready for her next meal!  She is a good little walker, and does best with brief walks & is also happy to chill on the sofa with you,  but she’s most happy when she’s being carried or when she’s 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.
