Volunteers now get a pat from Nelson. He is timid yet inquisitive. He is scared of noises when out walking but is starting to enjoy it and takes treats every so gently. When Nelson came from the pound he was very fearful of people and avoided eye contact or the human touch. He would hide in a kennel and be looking for possible escape routes. He has come a long way. He walks on loose lead now ignores passing dogs and cars. Nelson is a long term rehab boy who is looking for an experienced family who have worked on difficult dogs before and have time and patience. Nelson does not nip and he is social with other dogs. Volunteers say "Finally got a little pat in! Loves treats and looking forward to seeing him again!", "Timid and inquisitive. Not difficult to handle", "Very timid and scared of noises but when walking was an absolute joy. Great body language, very happy. Just needs time and quiet to come out of his shell." He weighs about 15kg and has a short coat.
