Meet the Dogs - 2018 American Rescue Dog Show

5. Nelson - Couch Potato Category

Name: Nelson
Category: Couch Potato
Adopted from: Social Tees Animal Rescue Foundation

About Nelson: Nelson was a stray in The Bronx and brought to a NYC Shelter.
Marc Loren, a resident of Los Angeles, saw Nelson’s photo online as a dog at risk for euthanasia simply due to lack of space in the shelter. Marc couldn’t bear to have that happened. He contacted Social Tees Animal Rescue in NYC to save him, but living all the way across the country, Marc never thought it was possible to adopt him. There was something about that picture of Nelson and he kept thinking about this sweet little boy who needed a home. The connection was too strong, and Marc flew to NY to bring Nelson back to Los Angeles to join his family.

Marc is most proud that Nelson is a kind dog—eager to kiss and please everyone. He said Nelson is also the funniest clown in the world. Nelson loves to crunch ice and also loves hotel beds where he is known for pulling off the blankets and rearranging the sheets to make his own cozy nest.
