Nellie is a 6 month old female Cockapoo. She has been in our care for some time and is almost ready to leave for a new home where her life can really begin. Nellie came to us at 15 weeks old with Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) which requred immediate heart surgery. She was then diagnosed with another hereditary condition – Angular Limb Deformity – which also required surgery to fix. These surgeries are both completed and she is healing well.
Nellie is an active, young dog who is going to need plenty of fun, training and exercise in her new home. She loves people and although initially she can be a little nervous of meeting new dogs she will quickly get over this and want to play. As Nellie has spent more than half her life on crate rest she will need help with basic training but is keen to learn. She travels well, loves her food and is mostly housetrained.
We are looking for a home with another friendly, playful dog where her new owners will help build her exercise up to normal levels over the next few months. We will accept applications from families with children over 5. Nellie will not be homed with cats. Nellie has been vaccinated and microchipped and will go out on a foster contract until she has been spayed.
Please complete the application form on our website if you feel you are able to offer Nellie the home she is looking for. Please do not apply by phone. We will get back to you about your application as soon as we can.
