Greeting from Grand Forks, ND and a hearty welcome to Mr. Nelson. He is one of 10 puppies born to Annie 12-425 on November 22, 2012.
A hunter found momma out in the middle of nowhere and brought her home. Two weeks later, on Thanksgiving day, she delivered the pups. Unable to care for 11 dogs, he contacted the local shelter. They were unable to handle that many dogs so the shelter contacted Prairie Paws Rescue out of Jamestown, ND. They in-turn contacted RAGOM to see about placing the dogs with us, and of course, RAGOM said YES! So, many, many, many kudos & thanks to Prairie Paws Rescue for all their hard work in getting these wonderful dogs to a warm and safe place to grow!
Nelson is a lighter golden with dark ears. He weighed 5.07lbs at the vet yesterday where he received his first distemper combo vaccine, bordatella vaccine, and was dewormed. He will need to be neutered and then he will be ready for his adoptive home. All puppies are adorable at this age, no question. But they come with a lot of baggage as well. Such as continued veterinary care until their round of vaccinations is complete, and then yearly vet bills after that, obedience training, housebreaking, chewing on everything,etc. You must be willing to commit your time, patience, finances, love, & kindness for many years. If you can do that, please contact your placement adviser about meeting this gem!
