Doesn't our Estee girl have the most beautiful light brown eyes?! They almost glow! But Estee is not just a pretty face, she has a wonderful, loving personality to match! Estee gives the best hugs and kisses. She could probably stand on her hind legs hugging you for hours if you let her! Estee came to Heartland from southern Illinois to find her forever home, and we frankly can't believe she is still at the shelter. Estee is friendly with all people, except she does not like little kids. Sometimes dogs do not respond well to their energy and Estee is one of those dogs. Speaking of energy, Estee has quite a bit and she loves to play fetch with tennis balls. She is great at retrieving and while she hasn't mastered the command 'drop it' she will happily let you take the ball out of her mouth. Estee is great about going potty outside and she is easy to walk on a leash! She is very intelligent and knows some basic commands as well. Estee is treat motivated so she would be easy to teach advanced commands to! She is not dog aggressive unless a dog is aggressive towards her in which case she will react, but Estee has no problem being next to most of the dogs at the shelter. Currently Estee is being treated for the completely curable case of Heartworm that she came in with, so she isn't able to run and play as much as we would like to let her (treatment requires low activity) but she goes on frequent walks. She will need to get two more shots before she is cleared but Heartland is covering the cost and Estee is still able to go home at any point! We would hate for this to be a deterrent to her adoption since she is a perfectly healthy young dog! Estee loves to be outside but she's also happy to be warm and cozy inside on her bed. She would love to be a couch potato with you this winter!
