Hi everyone ~ my name is Ellie and I’m around three years old.  Let me start off by saying I am working hard on the two remaining training issues that my amazing foster family are helping me with.  One is leash training and the other is socialization with other dogs.  Yes, these both are a work-in-progress but my foster dad says that I am smart and with continuous schooling, I will learn both.  As a matter of fact, I went to training classes and met two other dogs there and did really well so my teacher believes I will overcome my socialization issues with time but cats are probably not a good idea.  The same goes for the leash thingy.  I just need your patience and understanding and I’ll get there.  Otherwise, I know my commands and your human ways and I love humans so much that, believe me, all I want to do is please you.  My foster family describes me as fun loving, energetic, smart, and sweet.  Those are all good words, right?  I love the great outdoors (it could be my favourite thing) and have a ton of energy to expend when I’m out there.  When I’m in the house, I’m actually pretty calm, cool, and collected but outside, the world is my oyster so a big fenced back yard would be a real plus for me.  The doc says I’m healthy but could lose a few pounds but I already have so my weight won’t be an issue as long as we keep an eye on it together.  I do need to be spayed but we’ll talk about that if you’re interested in me.  Loud noises don’t bother me.  You can touch me anywhere.  I’m enthusiastic with my treats but I’d never nip.  I do love life and I enjoy every minute of it…whether that is going crazy outside or simply chillin’ on the couch with you.  It’s all good to me!
