learning crate training
Meet Miss Ellie! Little Ellie is about 38lbs and will probably top out in the low 50’s. She was born at the beginning of this year and is still learning the ropes. So far, she has bonded with her person and shown her loyalty to him. She’s such a sweet girl!
Ellie loves other dogs. Soft introductions are not necessary and she plays very well with pups her size. Curiosity strikes when other 4-legged pups come around and she definitely enjoys being with them. If you’re looking for a friendly dog-park partner, Ellie is perfect! When meeting new people, she is quite shy but, at the same time, doesn’t hesitate to greet them (then piddles… because she is a puppy and she gets nervous!). Kisses, of course, come in the thousands upon new introductions! Ellie gets to go on a walk each day and tires out afterward, so extensive exercise is not necessary for this pooch. Chasing sticks is also a great way to expel her energy (but not balls… for some reason, she only has a liking for sticks!).
Housebroken? Not quite… but she’s still a puppy! And if you’re going to adopt a puppy, you need to understand that they take a special sort of TLC and LOTS of patience. Sleeping through the night (under the bed) is easy enough, but she is still learning to love her crate. She doesn’t get dragged in kicking and screaming, but she also doesn’t go in willingly. So if you’re looking for that snuggle bug, she’ll be happy to ignore your alarm in the morning with you 😉 As far as the rest of her housebreaking goes, she goes outside easily but if she isn’t on a regular schedule, she hasn’t exactly learned that outside is the only place she should go. But, again, she’s a puppy! Come on!
Having an energetic dog can certainly be fun, but having a laid back pup is quite…laid back? Ellie’s favorite thing to do is rest underneath Foster Dad’s legs when he watches tv. Now, she’ll go all-out when playing with other dogs and she’ll run around until she’s tired. But in general, she’s pretty even keeled. It may be because she can be a little needy… but that shows just how much she loves her humans, right?! Being left alone is certainly not her idea of a good time and she can get a bit whiney. It seems as though she wants to be a part of whatever is going on and always needs to be touching her person. Whether that’s their arm out or leg down, she will surely be resting against it.
If you’re looking for a youngster to call your own, look no further! Little Miss Ellie is such a sweetheart and with a little time and consistency, she’ll be housebroken, trained up, and your newest family member!
