Adopt Ellen - ON HOLD

Hi there, I’m Ellen!

I’m a fun lady with one of the biggest smiles you’ve ever seen! I love to be active and play, I’m a big fan of my toys. Especially my tennis ball – I even like to carry one in my mouth, that way can be playtime all the time.

You might not think it from my big goofy smile, but I also have a shy side, so I’m learning to be more confident around new people. It helps being around people who can read my body language, so they know when I need help or a break. It’s been fun making new friends! I’m still a young lady, so I am learning new skills everyday. I’m working hard to complete my house training, and so far I’m great with using my pee pads!

When I am confident with someone, I can really let my personality shine. I’m told I’m very affectionate and gentle, and I like to be around the people I know. Especially if they have a ball! I would be happiest as an only child (both human and dog), although I have lived with a cat before and we got along pretty well. I’d love a quiet home environment where my family and me can play, snuggle, and spend our time together.

Look at my big smile and try not to fall in love with me – I bet you can’t!
