Nellie the Bichon Frise X

Nellie the Bichon Frise X

Nellie is a five year old spayed female Bichon Frise X who is looking for her new home. Nellie’s owners circumstances have changed and they can sadly no longer keep her. Nellie is a very sweet girl who loves cuddles and snacks, she lives in foster with multiple other small dogs and gets on with them great. She can initially be a little nervous meeting new people and may bark, but this quickly settles. Nellie has a very curly coat and this needs professional grooming every 6-8 weeks. She has had this done from a puppy and is very well behaved. Nellie is fully vaccinated and up to date with flea and worm treatment.

Nellie would love to live with other small, playful dogs – she could be an only dog in the right home, but generally we like our Little Legs gang to have a friend or two.
