Beautiful and fun-loving Ellie is all smiles and charm, all the time. This fun loving girl doesn't know the meaning of a bad day, her enthusiastic outlook is contagious. Ellie loves attention and is super affectionate. She is also great with other dogs and is even a little submissive, so she likely won't challenge any dogs you might already have. She is great with cats and kids too! Ellie is striking in appearance and has a huge heart to match. She is eager to please and will work just for your praise or attention. She enjoys her toys, a belly rub, and snuggles on the couch.
Ellie has been in and out of our adoption program for 3 years. When Ellie first came to us, she suffered from 100% urinary incontinence. She had to wear a diaper. Medication didn't work and we were told that there was nothing that could be done to fix it. But, because her personality is much larger than her condition, she was adopted anyway. Sadly, she was returned a few months ago after her family moved and couldn't take her with them. At that time, we decided to have some more tests done and were referred to a specialist. It was found that Ellie's condition was indeed repairable! The surgery was costly, but we had to try. Ellie's condition is now about 90% improved. Her foster home reports that there are dribbles sometimes, but nothing like before. Ellie will need to remain on a fairly inexpensive medication for the rest of her life to help with her condition.
Despite all she has been through, Ellie has never stopped smiling or wiggling her rear. Ellie will be a tremendous companion for some lucky and devoted person! Whether you're happily single or part of a large family, don't pass Ellie by, she's a great choice for anyone!
