From the Foster:

Nellie  is about as easy as they come. She is a happy and loving girl that is house trained on a schedule although she is still adjusting to her current potty schedule while I am at work. She goes potty immediately once she is outside- this girl doesn't mess around!  Nellie  loves to go for short strolls outside and is friendly with any doggie or human friends that pass by. Nellie is DEAF and therefore can be a bit vocal sometimes without realizing it, so she is not best suited to a home with shared walls.
 While  Nellie  is a senior gal, she still has some spunk. She even likes to stick her tongue out (partly because she has had most of her teeth pulled). That doesn't stop her from munching on soft treats or her favorite snack- cheese!  Nellie  has a heart of gold and is looking to spend her golden years on a cozy couch somewhere filled with belly rubs.
