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! Plus at the shelter he seems very housetrained! Nelson has done awesome on all his walk-alongs with other dogs at the shelter and would love to meet your resident dog. We think he would make a great companion and playmate in a home with another pup!
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! So far Nelson has learned the "sit" command and he's working on other traits that will be great for his forever home, like leash walking, and "touch".
If you'd like more information about Nelson or want to meet him, contact his PenPal at [email protected] ! Nelson and I can't wait to hear from you!
