Back in March, I put up a post hoping to find a home for my foster dog, Nelson. He is such a fun, sweet, handsome and loving dog that I really felt that an adoption would come quickly for him. Sadly, it has now been almost 6 months since I took him in, and I am still looking for his ‘forever home’. In fact, in this whole time, his rescue agency has only sent one single person out to even meet him and they won’t assist me in getting him to adoption events. Without a car, it is kind of difficult to get a 60 pound dog from Crown Heights to Manhattan. On my own I have tried everything that I can think of, but it has been unbelievably difficult to find anyone who is willing and able to give this sweet boy a chance. And unfortunately we have gotten to the point where I am unable to continue fostering him, due to some issues with my own dog.
Nelson is a handsome 1 year old male Blue/Grey Weimaraner/Staffordshire Terrier mix who is in URGENT need of a loving ‘forever home’ by August 7th. Unfortunately my own dog has started randomly attacking him, making the situation unsafe for all involved. My dog is currently living with my parents, but I have to bring her home in a few weeks. Nelson is a sweet, energetic, confident and very open boy who sleeps belly up and loves to run, play, give kisses and cuddle. He is still young, so his training is a work in progress. But he has come a long way since being pulled from a Harlem shelter’s kill list and coming to live with me six months ago. He has learned several commands, pulls much less than he used to on the leash, and is newly house trained. He is a strong and energetic boy who would really benefit from a firm, but kind and patient owner (he LOVES men, but not cats). I know that with time, love and continued training he will grow into the loving, well-behaved, adult dog he is destined to be. *There is a small fee to his rescue to cover their cost of adopting him from the shelter and neutering him, but all of his shots are up to date.* Please contact me at rfullerrd[at]gmail.com if you have any leads. Any help in getting the word out is also greatly appreciated.
