Please meet Nugget, our Wet Nose Wednesday superstar! Nugget has had a rough start to life but things are turning around for this little girl! Please read Nugget’s story and if it speaks to you and you think you could give this sweet baby her FURever home, you can contact the Erie Humane Society at 814 835 8331 or visit them at eriehumanesociety.org. Our Wet Nose Wednesday is brought to us by Bianchi Honda and the Honda Max!
From the EHS: Nugget is a 1 year old Russell Terrier mix. She came to the shelter because she was having some behavior issues in the home and the owners could no longer care for her. Nugget’s start at the shelter was not an easy one. She was very scared. Our staff patiently worked with her to bond and build trust to be able to begin handling her. Our trainer also put a lot of time into socializing Nugget and helping her through some fear issues. Nugget is very good motivated, especially with high value treats. Once she warms up to you, she’s full of love and hugs. Nugget loves going for walks and would enjoy playtime in a fenced yard. She is looking for a quiet, laid back home where she can relax. Nugget can be fearful of new people and men, so a couple visits to get to know her may be best. Nugget needs to be an only pet in the home and she needs to be placed in a home with no children. All this sweet girl needs is someone who is willing to invest the time into her and with patience, help her blossom into the wonderful dog we all know she is.
Since we want to set Nugget up for the most successful and low-stress transition from shelter to home, her adoption will require management approval.
