Ellie is a very sweet, pretty, attentive Brittany. In her previous life, Ellie was crated morning, noon, and night and only taken on walks a couple of times per day. She came into rescue with a very high energy level, but who could blame her as she wasn’t getting the exercise she needed. Ellie has perfect house manners. PERFECT! I leave her un-crated at all times and I come home to the house as I left it. She loves going for walks, hunting in the backyard for chipmunks, playing with the squeaky toys, and watching me cook in the kitchen. Ellie has not been exposed to very much human interaction and at first she didn’t show an interest in me, but over the last couple of weeks I have proven to be fun, interesting, and playful and she is now showing a curiosity in people. We were told that Ellie was once a hunter in the field. I think if you wanted to hunt with her she would be more than excited to join you, as she has an EXTREMELY strong nose, but she will also need training/refresher training course as she hasn’t learned to release to hand.right now she will eat what she catches. Ellie will need someone with patience to build a lasting relationship with. She is showing a desire to bond with humans, but she will need help figuring it all out at a slow pace. Ellie came to us with a bladder leak, but after a visit with the vet we found a medication that prevents that and she has been leak free ever since. She will need to be on this medication for the rest of her life. It is inexpensive and a normal treatment for this condition. Ellie is up to date on her vaccines and is heartworm negative and on preventative. If you are interested in Ellie, please fill out the adoption application and mention her name and ID #. We would LOVE to tell you more about her. Ellie’s owner lived in a condo and had to keep her outside due to the association rules. With winter coming, he needed to get her to safety. The owner surrender actually owned Ellie as a puppy until a few years old and then she went to a friend who stated he hunted her in the field, but then returned her back to the original owner when he too could no longer could keep her.
