DeKALB – The Tails Humane Society’s pet of the week is a 6-year-old mixed-breed Pointer and German Shorthair dog named Nelli who has soft velvety ears.

Nelli may come off as shy the first time you meet her, but she warms up to people quickly and is very affectionate. She is house trained, crate trained and knows how to sit. She really likes fetch, playing with dog toys and absolutely loves people, according to her description on Tails’ website.

While she is a little big, she will be a loving and excellent companion with lots of kisses and snuggles to offer.

If interested in adopting, Tails Humane Society, 2250 Barber Greene Road, is open for walk-ins from noon to 7 p.m. weekdays and noon to 5:30 p.m. on weekends.
