I had been passively searching for a companion for my dog, Gonzo, for some time. When I adopted him about 2 1/2 years ago, it was love at first sight. Since then I have constantly wondered about his siblings. I stumbled across a picture of Nelly the site and though
t for a second someone had posted Gonzo's picture!
I was immediately interested, but a bit skittish - he was heartworm positive and wasn't fully housebroken. I just wasn't sure about taking all of that on and incredibly nervous about something going wrong during his treatments.
Nevertheless, I took my dog, Gonzo, to meet Nelly and couldn't resist. I knew the added risks and responsibilities were going to be well worth it.
And I was correct. Florida Doggie Paws Rescue, the veterinarian and Nelly's recovery have been amazing! And he has only had one small accident since he has been home! The love and joy he has brought home has been incredible.
Nelly has the best temperament - sweet, calm and loving - and is the perfect compliment to his more hyper-active new brother, Gonzo. They are enjoying each other's company and quickly forming a bond. Their similarities and differences have established harmony in our household and made us a very happy family!
