Ellie's Story...
Pleased to make your acquaintance- I’m Ellie. Want to hear something funny? Yesterday I overheard a conversation where some folks were wondering about my baffling breed mix. One gentleman suggested that I am a Bitsa- bits of this and bits of that. He thought that I may be part schnauzer, part Labrador retriever, part wire haired terrier and part warthog (I think he may have been just joshing about the warthog ‘bit’). I call myself a Lotsa- lots of love, lots of silly and lots of fun. Affable and diplomatic girl that I am- I going to go with a Lotsa Bitsa!
I live in a great foster home with a cadre of other canines, and I get along just fine with each of them- even the self-appointed disciplinarian, a stern little female mini pinscher. I weigh 22 pounds, and am a good bit bigger than her, but she has much more attitude than I will ever have. My foster mom is always telling me that she loves the grizzled little whiskers on my face, and she laughs out loud at the way my too-big ears stick straight out from the sides of my head, then double back and drop straight downward. She is happy that I am heartworm negative and that I crate agreeably at bedtime- I don’t want to get cross ways with that mini-pin so I have learned to follow all the rules!
I enjoy meeting new people, both adults and children, and look forward to finding and settling into my forever home sometime real soon.
Please contact my foster mom at 225-505-9831 or by email at pdcarson@cox.net if you'd like to meet me. Did I mention that I am an adolescent/young adult at or about a year old?

All dogs adopted through Friends of the Animals are current on vaccinations, microchipped, and spayed or neutered prior to adoption. For more information about FOTA or to make a donation, please visit http://www.friendsoftheanimalsbr.org/.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ellie, a Baton Rouge Schnauzer (Standard)/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Standard)/Labrador Retriever for sale in Baton Rouge, or seeking a Schnauzer (Standard)/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Baton Rouge already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Baton Rouge breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Schnauzer (Standard)/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Schnauzer (Standard)/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Baton Rouge paves the way for another one to be saved.
