Nell is a 2-year old ex-breeding girl who is being fostered in Newport, South Wales. She isn’t your typical shut down ex-breeding girl and is a friendly, active dog. Nell has a slight heart murmur which does not require medication.
People – Nell loves people of both sexes and all ages and will greet them with a wagging tail after the initial sniff. Nell is happy to be touched She can still be a bit skittish if startled her. She has been to the vets many times for examinations and is perfectly happy to be touched everywhere.
Dogs – Nell is currently in foster with 2 female dogs and has also met family dogs of both sexes and all ages. She is fine with all but will growl if they’re too boisterous for her
Cats – Not cat tested
In the home – She loves to follow you around the house and be with you wherever you are. Nell loves to play/destroy toys socks and blankets but also loves nothing more than cuddling up to you on the settee in the evening. When left Nell would rather roam free in the house as she will dig at doors if left in loose in a room. If this is not possible, she would need to be crate trained. House training is a work in progress. Until Nell settles she will need constant supervision – she is an escape artist and gardens will have to be secure. Care must be taken when opening front doors etc so that she doesn’t slip out.
Out and about – Adopters will need to continue with Nell’s training in this area. She is getting there with lead walking but does zig zag a lot as she really isn’t used to it yet. She does enjoy zooming around though and will need regular exercise.
Type of home – Nell needs another dog in her new home. She is learning well from the dogs she is in foster with and loves cuddling with them. She is also less destructive when left with resident dogs. An active home would be ideal as she loves a good walk and a run. Nell is fine with children 5 and over but has not met any younger than that.
Please remember, if you have a dog and it is not neutered, it is against our policies to re-home a dog with you.
Nell is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in Newport, South Wales
