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. 

Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.

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!

To expedite to meet with this dog, please go to our site at and fill out an application. We look at the first applications to arrive, so we hope to hear from you soon!

About Saving Great Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

Saving Great Animals is a match-making rescuer. We have no public facility. We work individually to do our best in matching your desires and lifestyle to the best animal pal. We love what we do! We are Seattle-based but have representatives in all parts of Washington state and the Pacific Northwest.

We are volunteer-based and everyone in our rescue works full time at paying careers,

Saving Great Animals has been working tirelessly as a no-kill, foster-based rescue for the last 9 years. We also are connected to a wide network of foster homes and numerous shelters around the state to find permanent homes for animals that are deserving of love and a family. Many of the dogs and cats we rescue would otherwise face unecessary euthanization.

We also work hard to bring dogs and cats into SGA directly from their former home so they animals will never enter the shelter system which has environments that can be very stressful for them, even though we know so many shelter workers who are tireless too in helping the animals.

A very small percentage of our dogs come to us from our sister-shelter in Taiwan, where these dogs are typically rescued from deplorable circumstances.

All of our pets available for foster or adoption also are listed on PetFinder at (
