Nelson 11/6

Meet Nelson, an 8-year old Labrador. Nelson came to us as a stray, so we don’t know everything about his past. However, since being at the shelter he’s proven himself to be a smart, playful, fun-loving boy. He loves getting time to chase down tennis balls outdoors, as well as regular walks with his people. Nelson has already mastered a few commands and would be happy to learn more with his new family. His friendly nature means he would be happy to share a new home with other dogs, dog savvy cats, and active children who can keep up with him. If this playful pooch sounds like the one for you, then stop on by the shelter today to meet Nelson.

The Animal Welfare Society is fortunate to have volunteers who take adoptable dogs through the obedience classes.  They also spend quality time, playing with, walking, and running the dogs. Here’s what some volunteers had to say about Nelson:

“Nelson is not very food motivated; responded well to praise and attention. Walked well, knows sit.” Diane
