Meet NELSON

Nelson is an energetic, 11-year-old yellow lab mix with a sweet and gentle disposition. He has been spending time in a foster home, where he loves being outside and thoroughly enjoys not only leash walks, but also going on hikes and jogs. Nelson can also be very mellow. He enjoys sacking out on his bed or in the sun. He does not need to be entertained, although he likes to chase an occasional ball. He is gentle on a leash and very friendly with other dogs. Nelson does well with both cats and children. He has a very tolerant and gentle demeanor. In addition, he has great house manners, is house trained, and is good about letting you know when he has to go out. His foster parent reports that he does not get on furniture, scratch at the door, or dig in the yard. In addition, he rarely barks. Nelson does have a skin condition, which has been treated and his skin is improving. He is currently on a single protein diet as it is thought he might have a possible protein sensitivity. His foster family recently took him on a road trip, where was calm and obedient. They said he loves riding in the car and that he is just a sweet guy. Given Nelson's senior age, a quieter, less chaotic home would suit him best. He would also do best in a home where he is taken on a daily walk. A meet and greet with other dogs in the home is expected prior to adoption. If you are interested in meeting Nelson, please text the Foster Coordinator at 510-589-7341. Nelson's adoption fee is $95, plus $25 for an annual dog license, if you live in Jackson County.
