Nellie is an adorable petite, 6 year old Queensland heeler mini Aussie mix who landed at the Stanislaus County shelter as a stray.

She has done well meeting other dogs (video above, she is a little nervous about a super high energy dog in her face, but is neuter/non-reactive and non-confrontational.) She may do great in a home with calm adult dogs.

She is shy, but wanting to trust and we have no doubt once she gets outside the scary, loud and noisy cages she will continue to blossom.

HFP will cover all necessary vetting, skin product, monthly preventatives, vaccinations, microchip, and spay. Available as foster-to-adopt — foster-to-adopt is like a trial of sorts. You get to see how the dog does in your environment + give them time to adjust. If it’s not a forever match, you commit to fostering until we can find a stable placement (another foster or an adopter). Final Adoption donation is $250.
