Nellie - Golden Angel


NELLIE 12 yrs This spunky 12 yr old girl came to GRRR on a “return visit”. Nellie was placed with her family by GRRR at the tender age of six months. Because her family was transferred for their work-and because that work would involve much traveling- her family reluctantly brought her back. With no one at home to watch over gentle Nellie, the family thought it best to have GRRR find her a new home. Well, of COURSE she is house trained and knows her way around a crate. Nellie is also quite the professional when it comes to walking on a leash. She is social with men, women and children, but can be a bit persnickety when encountering some dogs. She is shy, sweet and affectionate-a golden at her best. She is currently on Rimadyl for arthritis and easily manages to be quite animated and loving. We have discovered that Nellie has cancer and has found her forever home in a GRRR hospice foster situation. She will be kept comfy with medicine and be given much love from her foster mom.
