If ever a dog deserved a fairy-tale ending, it is Nelly. When you look at this Chihuahua/Terrier Mix, you might guess that she has had more than her share of bad breaks in life. When rescued, poor Nelly’s condition was horrible. She was emaciated and suffering from a blistering case of mange, which has been treated. You can imagine that life on the streets for Nelly was cruel, and it was. Nelly’s life took a turn for the better when she was rescued and given the care she so desperately needed. Now that she is on the mend, Nelly is looking for a permanent home. At just nine pounds, Nelly is a very small dog. She is very friendly and likes children. She also likes cats and loves being around other dogs. Nelly is sort of shy and she is afraid of loud noises, but that may just be because she did not have the support of a loving family when she first experienced those loud noises.

Nelly believes in possibility. She knows that she is beautiful on the inside, and hopes to become equally lovely on the outside when her treatment is completed. Nelly has lived with nothing, but you can give her everything! In turn, Nelly will be the best dog you’ve ever had! Please—give Nelly the chance she needs to live the life she so very much deserves!
