Friendly, agreeable, good-natured, cuddly, curious - shall we go on describing the bundle of fur that is Ellie? This sweet eight-year-old girl weighs 14 pounds and is ready to meet her forever family.  

ELLIE MO 2019 SITTING LAWNEllie is up for anything and makes friends readily.  From lap time and belly rubs to car rides and new adventures - she loves to be included.  Ellie is brave around water and not afraid to get dirty.  We think she would be comfortable just about anywhere. 

Ellie is house-trained and crate trained. When walking on a leash she is definitely walking you, but this can be worked on with time. 

Ellie is being fostered in Missouri.


A fee will be requested to adopt this dog. The recommended fee amount will be based on the dog's age, and medical and behavioral issues, if any.  A completed application is required if you are interested in adoption.

Thank you for considering a rescue dog!
