Nellie is a dog that needs a firm but understanding owner that will be patient with her and help her understand she is finally home but she is the dog not the master. Nellie must be the only animal in the home, she does not like other dogs or cats. At the shelter, she minds her own business and doesn't instigate with other dogs so if you have a fenced in yard to keep her away from other dogs and cats, she'll be fine in your neighborhood, but if approached by other animals, she will assert her dominance.

Nellie cannot go to an active home that have people coming and going, and she cannot go with children. Nellie would do best with a single owner who respects that she needs to be put up when visitors come to the home as she can get protective of her person. Due to her vocalization and special needs, she needs a home with a fenced yard, no apartment living for her.

Nellie will not be a fit for most families; however, we know her perfect owner is out there. Nellie does great at the shelter with structure and guidance and a set routine. Nellie needs an owner who will provide stability and routine for her to help her feel safe and secure.
