Eleanor Shellstrop, The Good Place

Welcome Eleanor! This beautiful girl is one and half years old and weighs in around 45 pounds.

Eleanor is housebroken and is working on crate training. She sleeps through the night and keeps her crate clean. Right now, she has some reservations about being left in the crate, but she remains polite, even in her unamusement. A little more positive reinforcement is all she needs to get used to being left alone.

We don’t know how Eleanor feels about cats, but she loves being around children. She’s still learning how to control her limbs and tail when she gets excited, so she’ll need supervision around the little ones to make sure they don’t get knocked over by the fluff. Eleanor lives in a foster home with other dogs right now and they all get along great! She is a tad shy at first but warms up quickly. She’s still learning how to read other dogs’ signals, but she’ll get the hang of it the more she is around them.

Eleanor bounces between being hyper and calm. If she gets too excited, she can get jumpy, but long walks and heavy duty play sessions are all she needs to wear her out and turn her into an awesomely chill cuddle-buddy. Eleanor is a total love-bug with people – she just needs time to warm up and get to know them first. She’s a bit on the shy side, and she’s scared of things like leashes, baths, vacuums, and loud noises.

Eleanor already knows sit, down, and lay down, and she’s ready to learn whatever else you want to teach her! She is very smart and has a sweet temperament. Although she loves to be where her people are, she has an independent personality. Your presence is plenty enough to make her oh-so happy, so she doesn’t require a lot of extra attention.

Eleanor is a bit shy, and would prefer a home with a patient person who respects her limits. We’ve seen a lot of improvement in Eleanor by giving her plenty of positive reinforcement and teaching her that the world isn’t such a bad place after all! She just needs the right human to show her the way.
