Hello, my name is Nelson.  What’s your name?

I am a young boy approximately 6 months old and weigh about 18 pounds.  Some people say I have a coat of party colors (white, black, gray and reddish tan).  I guess that could be a good thing, because a party usually is fun for everyone.  That would also describe me, a happy go lucky, fun loving kind of guy.

I am active and really enjoy playing outside with my furry foster brothers and sisters.  We play chase and keep away in our fenced back yard.  I am really fast and can zip around the yard ahead of the gang.  I have not met any cats just yet, so I have no real experience in that department.    

I sleep in a crate and I am house trained.  I can walk on a leash, but car rides are the greatest!  I really look forward to going with my foster Momma on errands all around town. 

Nelson is possibly a mix of Sheltie and Kentucky Sweetness.  He is approximately 6 months old.  He is completely vetted (neutered and up to date on all vaccinations and preventatives).  He weighs about 18 pounds and is a very handsome fellow.  His coat is mostly white with an array of color splashes that pop out quite at random.  White, black, gray and reddish tan colors all add up to his adorable looks.  His dark brown eyes look for you to smile and say, let’s play.

Please remember that Nelson is an active boy that will need a fenced yard and would fit in well with other dogs.  If you are searching for a sweet little boy to share your heart and home, he just might be the one.  He is ready to give his all to a forever loving family.

Nelson is presently in a caring foster home located in Eastern Kentucky.  Out of state adoptions and transportation can be arranged.

If you are interested in adopting Nelson, please complete an online adoption application from our website at
