Come say hi to this beautiful, bright girl! She is waiting for her forever home – but she’s having lots of fun in the meantime!Ellie around the house:
Ellie has exceptional house manners, she is crate trained and house trained. If you haven’t noticed she needs to go out, she will come find you and “yip” to let you know it’s time for the bathroom!
She enjoys going in her crate and will go in frequently during the day to chill out. She sleeps all the way through the night in her crate and only “yips” when it’s wake up time and she needs the bathroom.
She likes to use her mouth sometimes to play, which we discourage. She’s a quick learner as she used to like getting up on the couch, we asked her to get down each time and now she doesn’t even bother to go up – she has her crate and her comfy bed and two large mats by the front and back doors – plus the cool tile when it’s warm!
She doesn’t like to use the stairs (either up or down) and we haven’t encouraged her to do that. She is happy using a few stairs to go into a house and down from a deck and will happily jump off the deck to see her best friend next door!
Ellie would be best in a home where she is the only animal – she loves other dogs and some cats, but she also likes her downtime and with other animals she is on the go all the time. If you at home for some of the time too, Ellie would love your company. She settles down beautifully when you’re not home (and she’s in the crate), but Ellie is a naturally social and she likes to have her people around her.Ellie in the yard:
Ellie loves sticks, digging and running around your yard – it’s playtime all of the time! She has really good recall with clicks and whistles.Ellie with other animals:
Ellie is all about fun, she just wants to play. She has been around cats and just wants to have fun and play with them. She does take the cats signals when they are done with playing. We wouldn’t recommend Ellie go to a home with nervous cats or cats that will run, as Ellie may just want to chase them. Ellie has been to doggy daycare and is friendly with other dogs, she will let them know when she has had enough playtime and sometimes needs a break in her crate.
Ellie with kids:Ellie with kids:
Ellie would do best with older kids, she is a little rambunctious to be around smaller kids and would likely knock them over until she has learned a little more obedience. She loves to play fetch and run around chasing the kids!Ellie on walks:
Ellie is full of energy on walks and would benefit from some obedience classes and continued leash training. She is a quick learner, so obedience classes and this will help her to learn the right behaviours! She is just so excited when she’s on walks and wants to say hi to everything and everybody – she wants to go, go, go!
Ellie would love to meet you and show you her bright, fun-loving personality and her super-cute face and ears!
