Poodle - Shih Tzu - Young - Female
Adoptable Small Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrained


Meet little Nellie, a Shih Tzu-Poodle blend who is searching for her forever home. Nellie has had a little bit of an unsettled past. She lost her home once due to the arrival of a new baby who took all her owners’ time – and then Nellie went to a very caring family but where they worked long hours and couldn’t spend much time with her. And so, wanting to do the right thing for Nellie, they turned her over to rescue. Nellie is now more than READY to find a loving family who will spend the one-on-one time with her that she so loves!

Nellie was born on March 24, 2017 and weighs 16 lbs. She’s well house-trained and crate-trained and received a squeaky-clean bill of health from the vet. She apparently loves children and other dogs – and is good with cats too, for that matter. She’s a quiet girl and very sweet, wanting only a lap to sit on and a chance to walk and explore – and to play!

We’re searching for a family for Nellie who has another small, playful dog – a family who will give her all the time and attention and love she craves! Also, a fenced yard that would give her the opportunity to run and play safely.

Please consider the care and grooming costs in breeds that require regular grooming. If this does not fit in your budget or lifestyle a short hair breed would be a better choice.

Nellie is current on her Rabies, DHP/Parvo, and Bordetella vaccines. She is spayed, heartworm tested, microchipped, and started on heartworm prevention.

Nellie’s adoption fee is $300.00.
