Ellie May is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Ellie May is currently fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County). Ellie May is a wonderful energetic girl who spent over 4 months in a shelter. She has lots of energy and lots of toy drive! She is very compatible and submissive with other dogs, but plays with great gusto. She does better matched with another medium to large energetic dog. She shares toys, loves to play tug and runs like the wind! Since she spent so much time in the shelter, she did not learn much about manners, but is learning with ease and speed. No resource guarding whatsoever. She likes the kiddie pool, likes to dig. We are working on leash manners and she has mastered sit, and we are working on down. Ellie has a great recall already. She will be suitable for a very active home. Older children only would be fine just because of her energy level. She does not jump on people nor does she get on furniture. She is housebroken and crate trained. This is a very biddable girl and would be excellent as a performance dog. We will be experimenting with different venues as she learns more manners. If you are looking for an active partner for jogging, hiking or any outdoor type sport this is the girl for you. I cannot say enough about this girl's temperament. She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped, heartworm negative and ready to take on the trail! UPDATE 8/25 Ellie May has a definite affinity for scent work. She is now working in the advanced classes and has a distinct alert. She is a thorough and smooth worker and seems to have no issues with any mode of scent work, i.e. buried, room search, container, or vehicle. She has also been started in dock diving and will excel at that with more training. Agility is next on her list! If you are looking for a performance dog, please do not overlook her!
