Nelson ~ in California

Looking for a Home

nelson Nelson here!

Strange name for a silky man but the shelter where I was has an animal control officer who is a Brit and all the dogs get good British names.

I was with another rescue group but they felt I'd have a better chance of being adopted if I was on the Silky Rescue site..... so here I am.

I'm about 9 or 10 years old, mellow for the most long as no one approaches me when I'm in someone's arms....I'll show my teeth because I think it's my duty to protect whomever I'm with. I get along with all the silky's here and even the resident cat.

I'd like a home with a single person, who lives a quiet life, so I don't have to deal with a lot of different people. I'm friendly and like to greet people. The only time I get testy is when I'm being held. My favorite activity is sitting on someone's lap.

I'm crate trained and know how to use the doggie door but I need someone to remind me about where to potty.
