Hi My name is Ellie. I am a sweet, healthy 7-year-old lab/beagle mix. I’m short and stocky at 46 pounds, and Iam a great size for any apartment or house. My owner passed away and I’m now looking for a loving forever home. I am housebroken, crate trained, and laid back. I can be very shy/timid at first but I absolutely love to be pet and have my belly rubbed. It takes me a little bit to warm up to strangers and other animals. When I am overwhelmed or scared, sometimes I snap. However, I am a very loving and loyal companion once you gain my trust. I don’t jump on the furniture. I am afraid of loud noises (thunder, fire works, gun shots, etc.) and quick/sudden movements. I am used to being the only dog, but I play well with small dogs and dogs that are submissive. I don’t care too much for high-energy dogs. I do much better with people and animals that don’t overwhelm me and let me come to them on my own. I like to play chase and wrestle with my foster sister. I love being outside and sniffing around. I do great being left out in the house or crated while my humans are away. I do excellent riding in cars too (I get in and out of the car on my own). The only kid I’ve been around was my owner’s granddaughter, who is around 3 years old, and I let her love and hug on me. However, I would probably be more comfortable around kids who are quiet, older, and have experience with dogs. I do not do well at the vet. I don’t like for the vet or vet techs to touch me and check me over and must be sedated heavily in order to have a check-up at the vet. I did well getting a bath and enjoyed when my foster parents brushed me. Ultimately, if you have patience to earn my trust and give me attention, pet me, and rub my belly, I will love you forever.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Brattleboro 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 Brattleboro 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 Labrador Retriever/Beagle breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Brattleboro paves the way for another one to be saved.
