About me

Hello, nice to meet you. I’m Nelly. I don’t look it, but trust me I am a big girl with plenty of growing to do. I weigh in at 34kg at only 8 months old and am an American Bulldog cross with a Bloodhound!

I am just a fun, friendly girl that loves everyone and everything. The thing is you see, I don’t realise that I am just so big and not everyone wants me jumping up at them and every dog doesn't want to meet me. I need an owner who has experience of large breed dogs to help train me lots of basic manners. I love food and cheese spread is my absolute favourite treat to get me to focus when I am training, but being young and puppy like I am easily distracted and want to pull you off to see the next exciting thing going on! Whilst someone works on my training, I think I'm best suited as an only dog as I'm a real handful!

I really have a big heart to match my big body and someone who understands I am a giant oaf lacking in my training would be an ideal owner for me. Are you the one?
