Facts about Ellie

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 8639916-80188
'Stranger-danger' is what Ellie thinks when she first meets someone, and let's face it, if you watch the news, you can appreciate her reserve. But that's her only minor offense, and with the help of a little string cheese, she quickly learns to trust; then she's ready to walk nicely on her leash or play Frisbee. An active singleton or couple who like to relax at home would be ideal for this girl since she enjoys exercise but prefers a low-key household. If there's another dog already in residence, that's a bonus because Ellie loves to play with her canine buddies. Because she was on the streets for a long time, she has a high prey drive and would do best in a home without cats.

Confidence and patience are what this gorgeous girl needs in her adopter, and she promises to repay those qualities with loyalty, companionship, and love. Ellie is house trained, crate trained (but she's also non-destructive outside of her crate), and would like to live with just adults because they're not as strange and unpredictable as kids. Could your home be the perfect fit?

If you're interested in adopting Ellie, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application, GatewayPets.com!. All of our dogs will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutured, and up-to-date on vaccinations at the time of adoption.

Gateway Pet Guardians is proud to offer a variety of mixed breed dogs available for adoption. However, please keep in mind that we rarely know the genetic background of the animals we rescue and, as such, we cannot guarantee the exact breed combinations found within this dog. Just know that this dog is probably a variety of several different breeds that have combined to create one very amazing and unique animal.

Our Adoption Process...

Once you find an animal that you are interested in, submit an adoption application through our website and we will send your information to the foster family. Once we have reviewed the application and contacted your references, we set up a home visit.

Adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs and $195 for puppies. This fee includes shots, a spay/neuter and microchipping, as well as any other treatment the animal may have needed upon being rescued.
