About Nellie

Adoption Fee: $350
Australian Cattle Dog
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female

This cute gal is Nellie, a young Australian Cattledog gal who was born in November, 2020. Nellie weighs about 40 pounds. Nellie didn't appreciate when kids and people took her toys and food from her, so she nipped them to share her displeasure. We haven't had any instances of nipping in her foster home, but still won't place her in a home with kids under teen age. Nellie knows sit, stay, crate, and her name. She is both house and crate trained. Nellie has been good with the other dogs in her foster home and would be equally happy as an only dog. She will chase the other dogs when they fetch, and finds that fun, but has no idea what to do on her own with a ball. As for water, she knows what to do with that: stick her head in it! Click on the red YouTube link to watch her in a kiddie pool. She also loves sticks and leaves, so plants may not be safe from her curiosity! Nellie is good on leash and will hop right in the car if the door is open. She would be fun for outdoor adventures and car trips. Nellie needs someone who keeps her both physically and mentally busy. While Nellie does have three legs, she is still fun and active. Watch her in her video by clicking on the red YouTube button. Her new home should who understand that she will growl at other dogs who get too close to her crate. Nellie is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. She is located in SoCal. Adopters must be able to meet and adopt here. We do not ship our dogs. A home visit and vet reference are required.
