Adopt Me: Nelly loves to play fetch (adopted)

She would prefer to be the only pet in the home, with older children

BarrieToday, in partnership with the Ontario SPCA Barrie Animal Centre, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hello, my name is Nelly. I am a fun-loving eight-year-old Chesapeake Bay Retriever in search of my forever home.

I am a people person who loves to spend time with my humans! My favourite thing to do is play fetch, I could play all day long with anyone willing to throw a ball for me.

I’ve got loads of energy, so a nice big backyard for me to run around in or lots of long walks would be the ideal for me!

I have lived with kids previously, but I prefer older children who can handle my size and energy. I am picky about my dog and cat friends, and would live best in a home with only humans, as they are my absolute favourite to be around.

If you are interested in adopting this happy dog, please send us an email at [email protected], or phone us at 705-728-7311. Due to COVID-19, our centre is not open to the public; however, through our curb side adoption program, adoptions are being coordinated over the phone and electronically.
