Nellie - Pointers In Need

About Pointer Nellie


Sex: Female       Age: around 1.5 years

Nellie is an orange/white Pointer bitch and approx 1.5 years old and is currently in foster care in the UK.

Nellie had a sad beginning to her life as she and her sister Olivia were saved from a puppy farm. They lived in a small transport box until they were rescued not long ago. Nellie is a very lovable Pointer who like cats children and dogs too.

Nellie is a sweet girl but she is very very nervous and doesn’t like any sort of raised voice. At the moment, she and her sister Olivia sleep together in a large cage and goes right through the night. Since being in foster care, Nellie has had a couple of accidents in the kitchen, but this is understandable as she has never been house trained – but she is getting a lot better.

Nellie is fine with cats, loves to run about, but also sleep a lot!

She is getting better on a lead and harness. Previous to foster care, Nellie had never experienced a lead and so is still getting use to it.

Nellie easts her food really well – in foster care, Nellie is enjoying raw mince and Arden grange as her stomach is a little delicate.

Nellie just needs a loving home with someone who has the patience to bring out her confidence. She will make a cracking companion.
