Nellie from Afghanistan 

Dog | Female | Age: 4 | Lab Mix, Mutt | Spayed/Neutered | Up-to-date on vaccinations

Personality
Nellie is a sweet dog and enjoys affection but isn't much of a house dog who will sit next to you on the sofa in the afternoon.

Other Animals
Yes - Nellie has lived with other big dogs and gets along fine with them. She was a little overwhelmed when I tried taking her to the dog park one time, barking at other dogs. I think she could do well at a dog park but have not taken her back since.

Medical History
Nellie is spayed and up to date on vaccines.

Ideal Home
Nellie was rescued from Afghanistan in early 2021. Nellie has been in foster care in Madison WI since June 2021. Nellie is looking for a special home situation. Her foster mom is happy to email or speak with you to discuss Nellie. Nellie is a sweet dog and enjoys affection but isn't much of a house dog who will sit next to you on the sofa in the afternoon. That's because Nellie basically wants to be outside all the time. From the time I wake up in the morning until I make her come in at night. So she either needs a situation with a fenced in yard - at least a 6-foot fence (she jumps 4-foot fences OR a system where she is on a leash that is attached to a cord - here's an example of a kit although you could make your own as well. https://www.rei.com/product/129601/ruffwear-knot-a-hitch-dog-tether-system She has a high prey drive (interest in critters) and will take off after them so I doubt she could ever be trusted off leash. If you're interested I'm happy to jump on the phone and discuss Nellie in more detail.
