Say hi to Nelson, one of our biggest goofballs! He’s a 5.5yr old corgi/staffie mix that’s full of energy, affection, and loving spirit that the world is meant to experience, and he’s dying to experience the world! Nelson was saved from the OC shelter just before he was set to be euthanized. He was released to QBSDR on a medical waiver and once out, he started a round of antibiotics, was neutered, and had his dangling dewclaws removed for safety.
Nelson’s going through some training to work on his socialization around bigger dogs, his leash work, and basic obedience. He gets along with dogs and can be a little assertive with those he senses a challenge from. He loves playing fetch or mouthing at a squeaky ball, and of course frapping around with his foster brofurs. He’s interested in cats but unknown in a home with them.
Nelson rides wonderfully in a car and is all about the cuddles. He has a few pounds to lose and would be great with an active family with children over 10 or an active individual that can continue his socialization and training. He’s a perfect companion for any outdoor adventure and will surely brighten any day with his derptastic smile! Are you the person that Nelson needs to thrive in life? If love working with an outgoing personality, Nelson may be the dog for you! Nelson is still going through training but applications are being accepted for review.
