Beautiful Nellie is the sweetest soul you will meet. From her huge bear cuddles to her glorious smile - she is the best friend you could want. At around 10 years of age Nellie was dumped by her previous owners for reasons we struggle to imagine, but certainly not for want of her love.
In her mature years Nellie has advanced arthritis in her back knees. Over the past month our vets have developed a treatment plan which has completely given Nellie a new lease on life. In foster care Nellie has thrived, with a healthy diet and proactive measures Nellie now thinks she is a puppy and LOVES her daily, short walks - which manage her weight loss and encourage her zest for life.
Nellie's favourite place is by your side- admiring everything you do in her good humoured manner. She truly is a companion dog/bear!!
Whilst technically Nellie is one of our ''Special Souls" as she will need ongoing treatment to manage her arthritis, the love she will bring to your life will far outweigh any vet visits. As a special soul dog, Nellie's adoption fee has been reduced.
Nellie would be best suited to a home without young children or pocket pets and is looking for a family to love her as much as she will love them for the rest of her days. If you have another dog, a dog her size would be the best fit for our Nellie or she can be your only Princess!

Pets Haven is a Pro-Life Animal Shelter.
Our aim is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home orphaned and homeless animals.
We do not and will never euthanise animals for economic reasons.
Unlimited veterinary care will be provided for any animal that comes into our care.
We temperament test every animal prior to accepting them into our shelter. If we accept a dog with a mild behavioural problem (such as jumping up, pulling on the lead etc) we will address this at the advice of a qualified dog trainer.
Euthanasia will only occur if:
On the advice of a veterinarian, they are diagnosed incurably ill and the prognosis is not favourable
If the animal displays a temperament which is deemed high risk.
We believe in responsibly giving all life a chance.
