Students hope to create on-campus dog shelter

“We decided that he needed to be cared for,” said Bailey Basham, a sophomore at TNU and one of the girls who found and cared for the dog.

Basham and Morgan McCranie, an RA in Tennessee Hall, found the Labrador mix on Sept. 14. They gave him a bath and fed him peanut butter sandwiches. The following day the girls took Nelson to the vet to see if he had a GPS chip. He had none.

With no way to find the original owners of the dog, and having nowhere to keep him, Basham and McCranie began looking for a home for him. After contacting several local shelters they were told it would be weeks before they had space for another dog. A friend of a TNU volleyball player is now the proud owner of Nelson.

Nelson first showed up at the volleyball court while they were playing, McCranie said. He followed them to Tennessee Hall after the game.

“This is also the third dog this weekend,” said McCranie, noting the frequency of strays wandering on campus.
