Description: 
NELSON - Cookie Monster!! Food!!! Did you say FOOOOOD!??!?!?!?!? You dont even have to say anything, he can hear you in the kitchen cupboard rustling around. In fact, he would make an excellent refrigerator alarm for someone who is trying to diet. Meet our little spunky monkey, Nelson. He loves people and other dogs. Not too fond of cats though. Crazy about food as you can see that a call to Jenny Craig is not far away. (We are working on that diet.) Nelson's little personality took a few weeks to shine through. He was easy going and quiet when he first arrived in his foster home. Then one day....our true Nelson introduced himself. It began with his frisky play with the other dogs and then progressed into chasing the cats, then to this bark that says, 'Here I am!!!' Little Nelson is definitely a barker. So, if you are looking for a dog that will deter a stranger from lurking around your home, this mobile alarm system comes with batteries included that keep on going and going... He can be a good listener though when corrected. And he does know when it is time relax and just be a lazy dog. When it is time to settle in for the evening, this love bug will snuggle up next to you and give plenty of night-night kisses. We think Nelson would make an excellent pet for a family with older children. He does not have an aggressive attitude and loves to just be with his care taker. AND THE BEST PART....He is potty trained!!
