Meet Nelson

Hi, I'm Nelson!
I'm a younger guy, only 3 yrs and 3 mos old. My foster mom calls me the little hippo because I'm short and stout but I've got a big head, pretty big brown eyes and weigh in around 50 lbs.

I'd make a great adventure buddy - I love car rides, I absolutely love to play ball and with my toys, and have made lots of other k9 friends. I will need some leash training because I’m in such a hurry to get to where we are going. At home, I'm potty trained and kennel trained but would love to snuggle in your bed if you'll let me! I’m the perfect combination of chill and adventure, I’m always up for a fun time, but also love my naps and snuggle sessions. I prefer older kids so I don't accidentally become a bowling ball. Before I was found, I'd been without a loving home for a while and taking care of myself but look at me now, living my best life! I've come so far and I'm curious and eager to learn more.

I can be shy when first meeting new people, but I warm up quick and I'll bond hard with my person/people. Im very loyal and listen well to my humans, I'm very eager to please.
I know a few basic commands, like sit and wait, but Give me treats and I'll learn anything! A confident savvy owner who's willing to bond with me over some training would be most ideal for helping me reach my full potential. I got a long list of boxes checked, as you can see, and just need the final touches so I can be my best self for my loving new forever home! I can't wait to meet you!

I was recently cat tested, and did pretty fantastic. I have potential to live in a cat friendly home, with proper slow introductions! I’m really just the sweetest squishiest boy, with so much love to give. I’m waiting to find my happy forever, and I know my future family will be so lucky to have me!
