Meet Nelson

Nelson is looking for an experienced dog owner who has dealt with resource guarding issues in the past. He needs an adult only home where there will be no visiting children, where he will be the only pet. He would like a home with direct access into a secure and private garden, in a quiet area away from the city centre.

Nelson is a happy wee boy who loves to have fun. He likes playing with his toys, whether that’s chasing after a ball, throwing around a squeaky toy, or keeping himself amused with a tasty filled Kong. He has lots of energy so likes to keep active and might even like to run with his new owner or go hill walking. He is an affectionate boy but he does need a bit of space at times, and he enjoys learning and loves enrichment. Nelson does have resource guarding issues, so needs an understanding owner who will commit to working with a professional to manage this issue. He can be reactive around other dogs, but has been working on this and is now happy to wear a muzzle and is more likely to take a treat than react badly. Nelson has a lot of potential and is sure to be a very rewarding pet for the right owner.

How To Rehome

To rehome Nelson, please read more about our rehoming process.
