Crate Trained!!!


“When everything’s wrong, you make it right.” – Ellie Goulding, “I Need Your Love” 

Welcome back, Ellijay! You may recognize this sweet girl as she was adopted from our program last year. She’s back through no fault of her own and ready to try again. Elli is about a year and a half old and around 65-75 pounds but could stand to probably lose just a few pounds. 

Sweet Ellie is already housebroken and crate trained! She has the most perfect manners and is an angel when it comes to lazing around on the couch. When she is in her crate, she appreciates a treat and a cuddly blanket to keep her occupied and cozy. 

Ellijay is right at home no matter where she is, and she can get along with kids, cats, and other dogs. When we’ve observed her around cats, she’s curious about them, but she is observant enough to know when one doesn’t want to play and backs down quickly. When she’s around her canine friends, she’s ready to play with just about anyone! Ellie loves to play with dogs and people alike, and if she’s headed to a family with kids, she’d like to be with kids big enough to be able to hold their own in a wrestling match with her!

Ellijay is used to being laid back and just going with the flow. When she sees something new and shiny, she gets excited but is able to calm herself down pretty quickly and get back to her usual easy-going state. If she can find a few minutes to be by herself, she loves to get snuggled up on the couch with some of her favorite people. This girl is a professional cuddler and politely requests an owner who can appreciate that about her! Occasionally, she’ll forget how big she is, and she’ll try to sit in her human’s lap… and that’s about all she’s having to “work on” right now. Seriously, this girl is about as good as it gets. 

This girl is ready to be the center of some lucky person’s world! Could it be yours? Contact us today!
