Nelly is such a polite, gentle social butterfly. She immediately warmed up to her foster when first introduced. Now she's very excited to see her, jumping up and doing play bows. Then she rolls over for belly rubs and leans on her foster for any pets and scratches she can get. And her tail always wags.

Nelly should be happy to be a couch potato with her humans, and also content to roll in the grass and sunbathe. Well-behaved, she's happy to gently sit for treats and will sit and wait for her food bowl to be put down.

Nelly and her foster's other dog are still kept separated, but they're co-existing well and she wags her tail through the gate at him. She is also learning about leash walking and is most likely to enjoy outdoor adventures.

She's an intelligent girl who appears to be completely house-trained and sleeps well in her dog bed. When her foster leaves the house, she calms down quickly in the bed or other comfy places and takes a nap.

Nelly hasn't been observed with children, but she's an easygoing, happy girl who may be the perfect family pup. She can do some excited jumping, so may do best with kids older than 10. Come meet this adorable girl!
