About Nelson:

Nelson is a medium-sized, male Border Collie, aged 2 years old.


Nelson is a 22 month old Border Collie, brought up in Dunedin now living with us in Auckland. Beautiful with lots of great qualities. He is a resource guarder and suits a solo owner. It is difficult to be clear with this form – he loves children but he has shown aggression in situations where he is guarding a female owner. Never shown aggression to children but the potential might be there. Has not shown aggression to cats that he grew up with

A bit about Nelsonโ€™s personality:

He’s very friendly – you will see him wag his whole body at you and smile. He is a little bit excitable but will calm down after a few minutes. He loves to play and knows some good commands. He is well toilet trained – no problems there. Takes some time to get used to vehicles but so long as there is ample room he’ll be okay. The main problem is resource guarding of a female to a male. He’s tried two homes – his original owners (a couple) and an attempt to rehome with another couple. But the resource guarding was there at both homes. Therefore we are certain he requires a solo owner and on a lifestyle block or farm would be ideal.
