Nelson needs a home

Allen County SPCA

Nelson is a 3-year-old neutered black and white flat coated retriever-collie mix.

He is a large sized dog. He was transferred from the Kokomo Humane Society to the Allen County SPCA.

He a very sweet boy who is extremely happy! He is always wagging his whole body! He loves to lick and give kisses! He does well with his housebreaking skills. He is a very smart boy and already knows some commands.

He will need a home with a fence or trolley so he can exercise safely. He does very well with other dogs and loves to play with his kennel buddy! He didn’t seem to mind the kitty during his assessment. The staff feels he would do well with children of all ages as long as they treat him nicely.

He will need frequent brushing to keep his shedding down.

If you are looking for a best buddy to have fun with please come visit with Nelson today!
