Ellie is a beautiful, brindled mix who is a loving and happy girl. She is estimated to be 5-years-old and is well mannered, crate trained, and potty trained. Ellie gets along with other calm dogs and loves human companionship as well. She chases cats, so her new forever home should not have a cat. She will make a wonderful family addition!
Ellie loves to give kisses and is a great cuddle buddy! She also has a sense of humor and likes to tease others with her toys.
Outside, Ellie likes to fetch her Kong toys, tennis balls, roll on her back, and hide in tall decorative grass like a lioness in the Serengeti. Ellie also likes to ride with you on a riding mower, although this is discouraged! HA! She walks well on a leash and loves going to dog events. She knows sit, stay, and come and is learning drop it, leave it, and watch.
Ellie was a stray and picked up by Indianapolis Animal Care and Control and was scheduled to be euthanized. Fortunately, a wonderful veterinarian pulled Ellie from IACC in February 2016, and Woofs and Books took her in during March 2016.
Based on her brindled coat and behavior, it is thought she is a hound/Catahoula Leopard Dog/American Bulldog mix along with other breeds. She weighs 52 pounds.
Her ideal forever home would include a fence (although not required), children older than 9-years-old, and another dog.
Ellie's adoption fee is $115.00. She is microchipped, spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and is given flea and heartworm meds.
