About Nellie

Adoption Fee: $200
Rat Terrier mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Female

Whoa, Nellie! Stop right here and take a look at this sweet 9-year-old rat terrier mix. She loves walks, either long or short, and as many pats, belly rubs, and snuggles as you are willing to provide. Nellie also likes to play with the softest toys and explore the outdoors with her nose. She is well behaved in the house, spending most of her day napping as close to humans as possible, even piling her entire 18 lbs. on your lap if it is available. Nellie gets along well with the resident terrier in her foster home, and may enjoy having another dog that would be willing to snuggle or play gently. She is potty trained on a schedule that includes frequent trips outside. Her ideal home would have both humans and dogs, hopefully with someone home for much of the day. Nellie sleeps well at night, cuddled up next to her humans on the bed. We hear she is not fond of cats, but have not tested that in her foster home. Nellie came to New Rattitude as an owner surrender when her lifelong family was moving and could not take her along. The good news is that we know her birthday, a rarity among adoptees, and she will celebrate her 10th birthday on March 19!
