Nelson – Adopted!


UPDATE: Nelson now Dobby has found his forever home!

“Hi Melody, Dobby (formerly Nelson) is so amazing and we’re incredibly glad we had the opportunity to adopt him.  He is the sweetest, most loving puppy and makes us so happy.  Being with him makes hikes and outings way more fun!  He is definitely a ladies man and loves all the attention he gets from passersby.  Overall he’s mellow and you can usually find him cuddling and sleeping in our laps.  He’s the happiest during breakfast, lunch, and dinner and while playing with other dogs in the neighborhood.  We definitely got lucky with this one.  We’re forever thankful that we have him in our lives and cannot imagine life without him. The mission of Love and Second Chances really touched us and we’re thrilled to support this awesome organization.  Dobby’s foster mom and Melody have been so supportive and helpful throughout the whole process.  We were impressed with their dedication and passion for these dogs.  Thank you Love and Second Chances and for all that you do! We love Dobby so much!  -Kristina C. and Josh M.”

Brief Bio: Meet Nelson! Nelson is an adorable puppy who was rescued along with a group of other pups when they were found as strays scavenging for food. Luckily for the young group of puppies a rescuer was able to spot them and get them all off the streets and to safety. Nelson is a very loving and sweet boy who is looking for a home that will continue to show him what it means to be in a family. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Nelson is patiently waiting for a home to call his own!
