The temperature dependence of the frequency shift and spin-lattice relaxation rate of isolated, nonmagnetic Li8 impurities implanted in a nearly ferromagnetic host (Pd) are measured by means of β-detected nuclear magnetic resonance (β-NMR). The shift is negative, very large, and increases monotonically with decreasing T in proportion to the bulk susceptibility of Pd for T>T* 100K. Below T*, an additional shift occurs which we attribute to the response of Pd to the defect. The relaxation rate is much slower than expected for the large shift and is linear with T below T*, showing no sign of additional relaxation mechanisms associated with the defect.
