Hi there! My name is Nelson!

I'm a sweet older guy who's hoping to find a forever home to spend my retirement in. I am very loving guy who's already lived in a home before so I've already learned a ton about how to be the best boy ever! Don't let my age fool you though, I love to run around and play and would love to go on an adventure with you! I love my brother Chuck so much that we are now a package deal, meaning you get twice the love! If I sound like the pup for you, make an appointment to meet Chuck and I at the shelter.

Make an appointment to meet me at AAWL's Main Shelter!
25 N. 40th St
Phoenix AZ 85034

AAWL recommends I live with children at least ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AGE and OLDER.
AAWL thinks I am TOLERANT of other dogs. Please bring your dog here to the shelter to meet me!
AAWL thinks I am a WEEKEND ATHLETE, meaning I need regular exercise.
AAWL does not know if I can live with cats at this time.
