My story

Please contact Lowell Nelson ( for more information about this pet.Ellie May needs a forever home!


Name: Ellie May    

Best Guess for Age: 3 years as of June 2022     Sex: Female

Approximate Weight: 50 lbs

Gets Along With: other dogs!

Currently Living at: DC area foster home

Special Adoption Considerations: Ellie May needs to go to a home with a second dog so she can work on her confidence and show off her true personality. Ellie May also has to go to a home without children under 12.

I’m Looking For: Love and play time and more play time! This young girl is full of energy and ready to go, go, go wherever you go! She loves playing with other dogs and will need plenty of opportunities for that.   She can be fearful of new people, so an apartment or condo where there are a lot of interactions may not be her best situation.  

What My Foster Says About Me: Ellie May is doing well at our house and learning a lot from my very calm, confident dogs. She loves daycare and loves to play with other dogs; 2-3 days a week of daycare, or the equivalent, calms her down a lot! To be her best self, she needs to go to a calm, structured home with someone who can continue to work on her training and confidence building. 

TO ADOPT: The adoption fee for this dog is $400, which includes the cost of routine vetting and transport from the shelter. If you are interested in adopting, please complete the Adoption Questionnaire online at

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have for adoption. That said, we cannot make any guarantees about age, breed or temperament.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The adoption process begins when you submit an adoption application either online or at an adoption event. The individual responsible for the dog you are interested in adopting - a position we call the “adoption coordinator” - will then set up a time to discuss your application over the telephone. The adoption coordinator will check your vet reference to make sure all current and past pets were kept up-to-date with their shots and medical care. The adoption coordinator will also set up a home visit with one of our trained volunteers. That individual will come to your home to ensure that it is a safe environment, to confirm that everyone in the home is on board with adopting a dog, and to discuss any other questions you may have about dog adoption!

Our adoption events are held each weekend. A schedule of times and locations can be found at
