Raising a puppy requires a lot of work and is a commitment! Ellie will be an awesome addition to a family that can give her the attention, exercise, training and affection she deserves.
Due to the fact that this is a mixed breed puppy, we, nor our vets, cannot guarantee the size that your dog will be.
Health: Ellie has been spayed and microchipped. She is current on her DHPP, Bordetella, and Rabies. She has been wormed and flea treated, and tested negative for heartworm.
History: Ellie comes from an overcrowded shelter in California. PUP was asked to help and we are so glad we did. All dogs PUP pulls from California come with health certificates, as required by Washington state.
Notes from Ellie's Foster Home:
Ellie is a 7 month old terrier mix. She is a very sweet and loving dog. She doesn’t talk much and only really lets out a couple of barks when unfamiliar people come to visit. She tends to be wary of new people so introductions will have to be slow. She spends her days following her foster parents around the house and playing with her foster brothers and sister. She does well with dogs her size. She can get a little rambunctious when playing with her foster brother and she really likes it when he chases her around the yard. Her favorite activity is playing fetch. Ellie has not been observed around children or cats. She is crate trained and sleeps in her crate throughout the night. She initially whimpers when she’s put in her crate but settles down quickly. She is potty trained on a schedule. Ellie can jump very high and run very fast, so tall baby gates and a yard with a tall and solid fence is ideal in order to keep her contained. She is still a puppy, so she will need plenty of chew toys, walks, and playtime to burn off her energy. Ellie gets very nervous and scared around veterinarians, but hopefully with time she will learn that they are safe people. Ellie is a smart and spunky little pup that has so much love to give! She’d do well in a home with people that have patience to work with her, gaining her trust, helping to continue her training and socialization, helping her gain her confidence, and of course giving her a lot of love. She’d do well as a single dog or with a dog her size.
Note: The above description reflects the behavior we have observed in the dog's foster home. Although PUP provides adopters up to the minute information on our dogs, we cannot guarantee they will behave in the same manner in a different environment with new owners.
