You may recognize me - I am Ellie from three years ago! I am now 4.5-5 years old. I am being returned to Rescue for Life as my owners feel that they are not the right owners from me. They feel that I need owners that can provide stronger leadership. With the right leadership I enjoy playing with other dogs. However, I do require a pack leader (as do all dogs!) and one that I can trust. I enjoy walks and am kennel-trained and house-trained.

I have completed obdience classes and agility classes. I got to meet a trainer at E&E kennels and five of her dogs and I quite liked them! She says I'm a pretty normal dog that just needs normal doggy corrections.

I was originally rescued from a dump west of Edmonton and am thoroughly enjoying life. I am a Shephard Collie cross and a very pretty girl at about 60 lbs! Because I am a Collie I do have some herding traits like play biting dogs ankles.

If you would be interesed in having me join your family please contact Rescue for Life at (780) 702-6151.

Age: 4.5-5 years old

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ellie, a Spruce Grove Collie/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Spruce Grove, or seeking a Collie/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Spruce Grove.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Spruce Grove already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Spruce Grove breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Collie/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Spruce Grove paves the way for another one to be saved.
