ELLIE is a very sweet and playful little Maltese/Terrier mix. She's about 6 yrs. old and weighs 10 lbs. Ellie was raised in a backyard with a larger dog and grew up having to defend herself. She never knew the life of a little indoor lapdog who is given lots of love and attention. While in the care of our Rescue, she has discovered the joy of personal attention and she loves it. Ellie is ready to make up for lost time by becoming someone's 'very special little girl'. She would do best as an 'only fur-child' in an adult only family. With time, love and special attention, Ellie can continue to learn new skills and become a loyal, loving little companion. ELLIE is available for ADOPTION OR FOSTER in CA only! Her Adoption fee is $175, and includes the Spay, Microchip with Registration, Up-to-Date Vaccines and Grooming.
