Ellie's Story...
Arrival story: Ellie was surrendered to us by her former owner who adopted her from a shelter. Her former owner nursed Ellie through pneumonia, but did not have the time or experience to raise and train a puppy. Her former owner had her for only a month, and before that, she had come to the shelter as a stray, so we do not know much about her past.

Approximate age / weight: 7 months old (DOB approximately 1-22-10) and 45 lbs.

Personality: Ellie is a tad bit shy at first, but warms up to you quickly and seeks affection. Ellie is bubbly, energetic, and absolutely gorgeous!

Ellie was given too much freedom in her former home and got into some things, like books and the food pantry. We believe Ellie was being a typical energetic pup, bored and looking for entertainment. Having had no apparent training, Ellie, like any puppy, had no way of knowing what items in the house were off limits. To a puppy who isn't trained, a book or a box of noodles is just another fun toy to play with. This is why puppies should be crated or confined to a small area when not being supervised! We do not yet know if Ellie is housetrained. We will post more information as we learn more.

Ellie lived with two cats and did want to play with them but didn't hurt them. So far, she seems fine around other dogs. We have not seen her around children yet.

Forever home: We are seeking a home with experience training a puppy, and prefer an adopter with German Shepherd experience. Her new family will need to be able to give Ellie plenty of exercise and supervision. Ellie would probably love to have a playmate and is hoping for a fenced yard so she never loses her way again. Her adopter must be able to give Ellie lots of lovin' and affection...oh...AND TOYS!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Northville 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 Northville 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 German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Northville paves the way for another one to be saved.
