Check out Nelson's new video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUoseZWUmMw&feature=youtu.be
Nelson is a gentle soul looking for his forever home and currently residing at ACCT Philadelphia after being found as a stray. He is also ridiculously handsome. See for yourself:
Nelson is a medium-sized boy, around 50lbs, and at about 3 years old he is over the unbridled hyperness of his puppy years but he still has some spunk! Nelson met some dogs during his stay at the shelter and did very well in play-dates!
When playtime is over, Nelson will sit by your side and rest his head in your lap for pets. He has this spot behind his right ear that after you give it a scratch, you will have made a lifelong friend! His fur is so soft you'll just want to nuzzle him forever!
Nelson is currently enrolled in the PenPal program at ACCT Philadelphia which means he has two volunteers who come down just to work with him to make his (hopefully short) stay at the shelter as easy and productive as possible so he's ready for his forever home! He LOVES learning tricks. So far Nelson has learned "sit", "touch", "down" and "paw!" He's working on other traits that will be great for his forever home, like walking nicely on a leash!
If you'd like more information about Nelson or want to meet him, contact his PenPals at Megan.E.Kelly1@gmail.com or PKottsieper@gmail.com! We can't wait to hear from you!
