Meet Nelson! Nelson was surrendered to the local shelter with his best buddy, who was in very poor condition and was humanely euthanized. Nelson quickly shut down following the losses of his family, and his best friend.


Nelson was neutered, microchipped, received a dental with
extractions, had a ruptured cyst cleaned out, got his vaccines updated, had bloodwork run (within normal limits), and had x-rays completed (indicating an old, healed radius fracture).
Nelson was a poor candidate for adoption in the shelter environment, and was shutting down, so he was released to rescue for a foster-based environment.


We really have no idea what mix Nelson is, but the app we use to identify breeds says 23% Jack Russell Terrier, so your guess is is good as ours!

While in foster care, we have learned that Nelson is a TOTAL love bug. He absolutely loves to
snuggle his people! When he isn’t snuggling his people, you might find him napping in his crate,
which he has found to be a safe space. He is great with the other dogs in his foster home, and often watches them engage, but does not seek out play with them, quite possibly because they are much younger than he is. Even though he doesn’t love to play, he still gets excited and joins in with barking and group potty sessions.

Nelson is happy to report that he has not had a single
accident in his foster home!! 

Nelson is fostered in Syracuse, NY and is available for an adoption fee of $250.00. Nelson is
neutered, had a dental, is appropriately vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative! If
you think he is the perfect addition to your family, please fill out an application at Meet & greets will not be
scheduled without an approved application on file.


Do I seem like the perfect match?


If so, please submit an adoption application to be considered to adopt me!
