Meet Nelly

This beautiful pit mix girl is estimated to be a little over a year old. Nelly is about 48 pounds of pure muscle. She can be very energetic but can also be cuddly. She is great on a leash and would love to be your walking or running partner although she's not a fan of very hot weather. We are looking for a home with a fully fenced yard with direct access from the house for Nelly. This will allow her to run and play safely.

Nelly likes most other dogs although she can get jealous of them if we are focusing on them. If you have a dog, we would do a meet and greet to be sure they get along. She was recently cat tested and passed the test! Because of her muscular physique and energy level, we think she would do best in a home with older children. We wouldn't want her to unintentionally knock small children over.

At long last, Nelly is ready for her forever home! We have had her in our care for some time. We were searching for a medical answer to why she had extreme thirst as well as frequent accidents with dilute urine. After many tests to eliminate possibilities, we believe she has Diabetes Insipidus. This disease is treated with desmopressin (also known as DDAVP) that is applied as eye drops. You read that right, eye drops! She lets us put 1 drop in each eye twice a day like a champ. It has made all the difference in the world. She will need to remain on this medication once adopted. You can read more about Diabetes Insipidus at the following location:
