Meet Nelson

Nelson here!

Look deep into my different colored eyes – then get me a ball! I LOVE to play fetch! The second I see a ball or hear you say the word, I’m ready to play. I know how to fetch and I’ll bring the ball right back to you and drop it at your feet.

I’ll go ahead and say it, I’m extremely smart. I’m looking for an active family that will put my intelligence to good use.

I just recently arrived at FOHA that means there is still a lot to learn about me like how I am with other dogs.   I haven’t shown that side of my personality yet.  Once I do, my friends at FOHA will help me update my bio.  In the meantime, if you would like to come meet me, submit an application and we can set up a time to get to know each other.  See you soon!!

I am looking for a home with no kids, no cats, and an experienced owner. 

Nelson's Medical Information

The FOHA Medical Team says I need to be treated for parasites before my adoption can be finalized.  That doesn't mean I can't become a member of your family now.  Once the adoption application process is complete, my adoption will be considered a "Foster with Intent to Adopt".  That means I get to live with you and you will take me to one of FOHA’s approved partner veterinarians for my medical treatment. FOHA will financially cover the costs.  Once my treatment is completed, we will be able to finalize my adoption and I will be forever yours.
