It’s time to meet Nellie and she would love to meet you! She’s a 7 year-old shepherd and pit bull terrier mix. She’s quite the easygoing gal and snuggles her way into the hearts of everyone who meet her.
Q. What’s your ideal day?
A. Any day that starts out with a belly rub is what I’m looking for! If lounging is the plan for the day and a leisurely walk, then I’m game. Getting to hang out and kick back with my people would make for a great day.
Q. If you were a type of candy, what would you be?
A. Well I think of myself as sweet and affectionate… so maybe I’m a Baby Ruth! I’m a lover of hugs. Plus, most people that I’ve met so far like me. I do tend to get a bit “nutty” when I’m on the hunt for treats, but I will sit politely when given to me!
Q. How do you feel about living with other fury friends? Tiny humans?
A. My laid back nature gets tested around other dogs and cats. I don’t do very well with them in my space, to be completely honest. I do, however, do better with most people! I can be a bit shy at first when meeting others, but I warm up pretty quick with some belly rubs. Tiny humans though... they scare me and make me nervous.
Q. We all have quirks, Nellie. What’s yours?
A. I get a special medicine every 12 hours to help with this heart condition I have. I don’t mind getting my medicine and it really doesn’t affect my attitude or me at all! I personally think my heart condition just means I have an even more special heart to love everyone with.
Q. What’s your most favorite thing in the world?
A. Definitely spending time with the ones I love and who love me back. As cheesy as that is, it’s true! I’m really hoping that I can find that nice warm spot on the couch where I feel safe and warm every day.
Q. What’s a surprising fact about your breed?
A. I’m such a mix! So I guess I’ll try to pick out a couple cool facts. I think it’s pretty neat that shepherds are one of the most popular family dogs in the US and are great herders, service dogs, hunters and more! Pit bull is more of a category than a breed too, so it’s good to remember that each one is an individual (like me!) and most are sweet natured (also like me!).
