Meet Ellie! Ellie is a very cute little Shih Tzu female. She is the cutest lil 8-lb ball of precious!
She is an adorable girl with a strong personality. She is loving and sweet with people that she knows but can struggle with meeting new people so will love your help to feel comfortable.
She likes to sit on laps and be petted but can be territorial when her space is invaded without invitation, so we will give you tools to help her confidence. She is in one of our foster homes and is doing better with this.
Ellie walks well on the leash and gets along with other dogs. She shows the same territorial issue with other dogs though, so as long as they respect her space, she will be fine. We can recommend good trainers to work with her further once she is in her new home. Ellie is good with children but we prefer to see her in a home with older kids, who can respect Ellie's need for her own space at times.
Ellie is vaccinated, spayed and chipped. Her adoption fee is $395.
We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!
