Meet Ellie

Meet Ellie! Ellie is about 3 years old, 15 lbs, and looks like she has some terrier in her mix. Ellie is working on her house training and does not like the crate. She also is not fond of walking on leash yet, but will patience could learn it. She is not a big player with other dogs, but gets along with them. She would do fine with very respectful children and dog-savvy cats. She loves

In addition, adopters should be home for the majority of the day (including post-pandemic) and have a positive reinforcement trainer picked out to enroll their dog with. Force-free training classes/sessions are required for all adopted dogs in order to set them and their new families up for success. Adopters should be prepared to also continue their dog's socialization and experiences with new people, places, and things, as well as expect to help them fine tune any previous training.

Her fosters say, "Ellie is such a sweet dog. I think she would do great with any age kids that know how to act around animals! Ellie is an old soul. She just loves company. Whether it be sitting on the couch or walking outside. Her personality is just plain precious. She's learned to use pee pads in the house (it stormed a lot while she lived here so we didn't get to go out much). But she will go outside. She does not like a leash but time will change that. She's just never been on one enough. She is a lap dog. Wants to be near you all the time. She loves her people. It took her only a day to warm up to my other dogs and now they all act like she's been here forever. Ellie needs someone who is home more than they aren't due to the fact she does not like to be left. She is going to make someone a great companion!"
