Meet NELLIE, a Collie/Shepherd mix. While she carries something of the looks of the Shepherd, her personality is all collie — calm and gentle. Nellie was abandoned at a local veterinarian where she was brought up-to-date on all vaccinations and put on heartworm medication. She was a little underweight and shaky, but she is gaining weight and strength daily. She is walking a two mile walk without difficulty. Nellie’s age was originally estimated at 12 years, but we now think she is closer to the six year mark based on her teeth, strong coat, and general health.
