Her recent history went from being caged in a local public kill shelter to an ideal life on a ranch in Central Florida with her new human mom, Becky! Follow this link to read the Happy Tails story of Nellie.
The photo shown is Nellie, the black Lab Retriever rescue dog, and Becky (photo inset). Nellie was pulled from an animal control kill shelter, and lived at Lifeline Dog Rescue for less than a week before adopted. As such, she was placed so quickly that we had very few high quality photographs.
This sweet girl did not stop smiling from the moment she was pulled from her cage at the animal shelter and taken to the Lifeline Dog Rescue facility in Okeechobee, Florida. Nellie is in great health with pure white teeth and gorgeous fur, and passed her health and temperament evaluations immediately.
During her stay at Lifeline, Nellie proved to be a very lively and playful puppy. She will be good with children, baths, grooming, walking, and car rides. She is crate trained, housebroken, comes when called, and walks on a lead. Nellie had tons of fun and interacted well with the wide variety of other dogs at Lifeline.
Don’t see the ideal dog for you on our site? If you wonder how you missed out on adopting such a beautiful dog as Nellie you may want to consider registering to adopt with Lifeline Dog Rescue. First read our dog adoption process steps and then complete our online dog adoption request form. When submitting the form, you can skip the Lifeline dog name and fill in the breed, gender, and age to specify the type of dog you want to adopt.
We will keep your request on file, and call you first as suitable dogs arrive, or are located to pull from our network of public and private dog rescue organizations. You might be featured in our next Happy Tails dog rescue success story!
Congratulations to Nellie, and a BIG thank you to Becky! The moment any of our dogs for adoption leave it is a happy-sad time. However, helping dogs go from doggy jail to life on the ranch or other suitable forever home is what we do.
Nellie’s smile certainly fits the Lifeline slogan: Where dogs learn to smile again!
