Hi my name is Ellen! I am a 50ish pound lab mix. I am such a love bug once I get acclimated to my new home. My foster family has other dogs, cats, and two young kids. I LOVE THEM ALL! It did take me some time to get used to the other dogs in my foster home, but I need a laid back dog friend to spend my days with in my forever home. I am fiercely loyal to my foster family and the animals in my pack. This means when new animals are around I tend to growl and get a little on edge. With proper commands I am able to refocus and calm down. I currently sleep in my foster sisters room on her bed so I can snuggle all night. I have not had any accidents in the house, but I do get a little excited sometimes. One more little piece of info, I only have three feet:) My injury was never treated so I took care of it myself. It doesn't stop me from getting around and being playful though. I would make a great family dog who is looking for a fur-baby to love!

My adoption fee is sponsored to an approved home and includes my spay/neuter, vaccinations, wellness exam, heartworm test, and microchip with free lifetime registration! If you're interested in meeting/adopting me, please visit and fill out the form! Any questions about me or the adoption process can be directed to my friends at I can't wait to hear from you!

*Remember, dogs are pack animals. Because of this, Rescue One does not adopt to outdoor-only homes*

About Rescue One

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescue One is a group of volunteers dedicated to the rescue and betterment of animals lives in our community. We are a foster based rescue located in Springfield, MO. All of the animals in our care live in foster homes until a forever home can be found. Our goal is to not only rescue animals in need but to also educate the public on responsible pet ownership.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We host adoption events at Petsway in Springfield on Glenstone the 1st Saturday of the month and Petsway in Springfield on Battlefield the 3rd Saturday of the month. We are available other times as well if you see an animal you are interested in adopting. Please call us at 417-880-9117 and we can set up a time.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees are as follows: $150 for dogs/puppies, $75 for senior/special needs dogs, and $75 for cats/kittens.

Rescue One will have potential adopters fill out an adoption application, and then take the dog/cat on a week long adoption trial. At the end of that week (if all goes well) one of our representatives will visit your home for a home check, and then finalize all paperwork. The adoption fee will be paid at the time of the home check.

The only 'blanket' requirement Rescue One has in place is that no animal is to be an outdoor-only pet. No exceptions.
