Nellie is approximately 4 years old and has a rough life in that short amount of time.  She started out living life as a backyard breeder, and then was dumped in the shelter after she wasn't useful to her owner anymore.  Diamonds in the Ruff saved her from the shelter and saved her from the only life she knew.  Nellie has been one of the most appreciative dogs we have ever rescued before.  She just an angel to be around, loves to snuggle with you and will play as long as you will!  She is great with other dogs and cats as well.  If you are interested in adopting Nellie, please go to to complete an online adoption application.  If you have questions, feel free to call us at 1-855-745-2738 or email at  Nellie is waiting for you!!
