Golden Retriever Mix
3 years old
Sweet Ellie came to rescue from Turkey. She was found on a side road of the forest with her puppies who unfortunately did not survive. She was emaciated and needed help. Her rescuers brought her back to good health and asked if we could find a loving home for her. Ellie is a petite golden mix with adorable puppy-like looks. She is full grown but has the face of a golden puppy. And she is sooo sweet and very smart!
Her most endearing trait is she is a complete cuddle bug! She will lay across your lap or sit right next to you and snuggle. Ellie is playful and energetic but will calm right down when her people stop playing. Will keep herself occupied with a toy or just lie down and watch her people. She loves to run and chase the ball though she needs practice bringing the ball back. She is great with other dogs and gets along well with her doggie foster brothers. Very smart and learned the dog door quickly. Ellie is crate trained and housebroken, but her forever family should be prepared to gently remind her of the appropriate place to go potty. She is still learning basic commands and how to walk on a leash without pulling. She will sometimes bark if left in a room without any people; but this is getting less frequent as she gets used to her new surroundings and understands her people will return.
We are looking for a family where Ellie would have human companionship most of the time. An active home would be great, as she loves to chase and run and play. She would do great with or without a doggie companion, as long as she gets ample opportunities to socialize with other dogs. Most importantly she needs a family who will shower her with love, cuddle with her on the couch, and provide the training and exercise she needs to thrive. In turn you will have the most wonderful, loving companion anyone could ask for!
