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?

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
