***NEEDS FOSTER or FUREVER HOME*** Currently in Jerome boarding kennels NELSON is a 1.5-year-old cutie-patootie who was living with two dogs and a cat. He played with the resident female dog, but older resident dog kept starting fights with him. The situation was no longer safe for the older people in the home, so they needed to rehome him. We are now looking for a dog-free, child-free home for NELSON, but cats are OK. NELSON did well at a recent offsite adoption event. He was fine with the other dogs and meeting strangers. He was lucky to be living in a foster home with an older gentleman and a cat for a few weeks, but NELSON was just too much dog for an almost 80 year old. NELSON rides well in a car and is a total goof-ball. NELSON is house-trained with a doggy door. NELSON is neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $225. MORE PHOTOS: Complete an easy, online foster application to meet NELSON in Jerome. BACKGROUND: NELSON was found in the desert when he was 8 weeks old with the rest of his litter. He was apparently used as a bait dog and he was the only survivor. He was taken in by a Good Samaritan (former animal control officer) who didn't want to see him used as a bait dog for dog fighters.
