I am already spayed.
Hi there everyone, my name is Ellie Mae. I will be available for adoption on 1/19/2013 @ the Chili Salsa Bowl Event @ Eastlake Woodlands Country Club 1055 East Lake Woodlands Parkway, Oldsmar, 34677 from 1pm-4pm. The entry fee for the event is $5. Please come see me and the other adorable adoptables. This is my story, I was transferred here from Tallahassee where in my previous home I was made to stay in a crate and have puppies after puppies after puppies, not a very good life for any dog. Because of my past I'm a little insecure and very unsure of everything new. I will need an experienced owner to give me time, patience and lots of TLC. Since I was made to breed my whole life I was not socialized. I would really prefer to be the only fur baby where I can get all the love and attention that I so deserve and never received. I hope you can see in me the SUPER SWEET girl that everyone else sees. Will you give me a chance? Anyone interested in adopting me MUST have knowledge and experience with my breed and my situation. A home visit and references may be required. As if that wasnt enough, my previous owner did not give me heartworm prevention so when I arrived here, I was found to be heartworm positive and lucky for me, the nice people here decided to treat me. I have finished all my treatments. Which means you can take me home right now. Because heartworm treatment can be tough on a dog, I will need to remain on a low exercise regimen for the next 60 days. This means only leash walks for potty breaks. I may be a little bit more work than some of the other dogs here, but I know I am worth it. Come visit me today and I'll show you why!!!
