About Nellie:

Nellie is a medium-sized, female Border Collie X, aged 7 years old.


Nellie is a lovely dog who loves hugs all the time. She loves going on walks but also loves sitting in-front of the heater for a nap. She is kind, fast loyal and very protective of those who protect her. She is not a violent dog but is scared of motorbikes. She lived on a farm in Nelson for most of her life until I took her in because her previous family could not have her as they were moving overseas. She is a very loving dog, loves attention but is also fine by herself as long as she is warm. She sleeps inside due to her fur being very light because she gets cold. I now have a baby and finding it difficult to take her on walks and give her the attention that she deserves.
