Meet Ellis

Ellis was left at a dog-sitter's home by his owner. LBDR was lucky to step-in and take this amazing boy! at 50lbs and 8 months old, Ellis is all puppy-goofiness along with a refined, attentive and well-trained demeanor. He knows basic commands and is crate-trained and house-broken. Ellis is a submissive boy who loved his first trip to the dog park and hid under a bench as 3 large Golden Retrievers crowded him. Once he started playing with new friends and retrieving the coveted tennis ball, Ellis bloomed and had a blast. This boy will make any family happy (kids over 5) and would love a canine sibling. He is a gem!!! Located in CT

Please note: Little Black Dog Rescue is a FOSTER BASED rescue based in Fairfield County, Connecticut. We do NOT have a facility where you can come meet the dogs. We do adoption events every few months but primarily work one-on-one with each applicant to match the right dog to the right family. Once your application is received, all questions can be answered. We currently adopt to homes along the East Coast of the United States. The adoption fee ranges from $250-$525 depending on age of the dog and transport distance/cost.

Please go to our website at to see more information and to fill out our online application. Applications are required before conversations about potential matches can begin. Please check our website for up to date availability.

We are a non profit organization and the adoption fee goes towards the transport, vetting, spay/neuter and boarding needs of the dogs we rescue. LBDR is a small rescue that receives a minor discount on vetting unlike larger rescues who self-administer or receive volume discounts. LBDR focuses on the rescue, care and placement of black dogs who are in danger of euthanasia due to their color, as well as other dogs who are in immediate need. LBDR is funded by donations which are used solely for the
care of our dogs.
