Nelson has spent all 8 years of his life living outside. His owners made the kind decision to surrender him to ABR in order to give him a better life. He is one of the sweetest, most gentle creatures we've ever met. He gets along with pups, cats, kids...hasn't met a stranger yet! Nelson still has so much life in him, and will joyfully roll on his back kicking his legs in the air with his favorite toy! He's a fantastic hiking buddy, enjoying long walks exploring trails and making new friends. The only thing Nelson seems to dislike is personal space, climbing in foster mom's lap any chance he gets for a big hug. He would thrive in just about any home and is truly your best buddy forever.
