  Nelia, 4-5 years Female Bloodhound/Collie/Retriever  Mix

Nelia is a 4-5 year old Red Bloodhound mix with a white chest. She weighs approx. 60 lbs. She came to a shelter in INdiana after being hit by a car. Fortunately the car stopped quickly and neither dog was hurt. Unfortunately, her owners refused to pay her "return to owner" fee. She loves to chase a ball, just like a Lab, but she also has an incredible nose! She kennels well with other dogs, seems great with cats, and she is the perfect companion for a family wanting a large, yet tame, dog or who has another dog who needs a calm companion. Available now. HERE'S AN UPDATE FROM HER FOSTER MOM: Nelia, who I am calling Nellie, after my mother is off to a good start. The usual boundary testing that one would expect with a third dog coming in. Bear was rather in her face but after a few growls, he backed off and they are fine together. Nellie rides well in the SUV as long as she is in the front passenger seat. She sits perfectly but wants to get out the drivers side. She is well behaved in the house but didn't know how to go down stairs. Seems to be house broken but loves to be outside. I put her in my fenced in area and she immediately found a place to dig out. Seems to be an escape artist. Walks pretty well on leash with her nose to the ground. Walks all over the place but not much of a puller. Oh yes, she seems to be good with cats, I took her to Ellie's, Nellie looked at the cat and the cat looked at her and Nellie continued on her way. Very fussy eater. She appears to be a much loved dog. I think that the family couldn't afford the fee. I can't imagine any one giving her up. My neighbors noticed the new dog and she is quite a hit . " Beautiful, loveable, etc, etc." She is in a foster home and we can set up a meeting once we receive your application.
