Pet Of The Week – Ellie

Once in a while, you meet a dog so endearing that it can melt your heart, instantly, and Ellie certainly fits that bill! Ellie is a 6-year-old purebred Merle Australian Shepherd who is full of charm and who has a particular trait that is uniquely hers and sure to steal your heart.

Before coming to Green Hills Animal Shelter, Ellie had a home where she was much loved. Unfortunately, as we so often say, life sometimes throws us curves, and through no fault of her own Ellie found herself relinquished to the shelter so that she could find a new family to care for her and love her forever. Ellie immediately charmed shelter staff and volunteers alike with her loveable personality, and after a good grooming and brushing, her already gorgeous coat is now even more stunning.

Ellie is a friendly girl who is extremely sweet and loves her people! She is gentle and smart and gets along with everyone she meets; adults, children, and other dogs … Ellie’s love know no bounds! We mentioned earlier that Ellie has a special trait, and she does! Ellie can smile! And we don’t just mean give you a happy dog face – when Ellie greets you she will actually pull back her lips and smile at you just as we humans do. Unfortunately, we haven’t yet captured Ellie’s smile on camera because it is so cute that all we can do is collapse into happy giggles and smile back, but trust us when we tell you it will absolutely melt your heart and leave you smiling right along with her.

If Ellie could describe her perfect Forever Home she would ask for an indoor home with a soft bed and a family who would give her lots of cuddle time (Ellie loves cuddles!), attention, and love. She would love to go on long, leashed walks and spend her evenings curled up with her family. Because Ellie loves other dogs she would very much enjoy a home where she would have a canine companion, and because she loves people of all ages she would also be quite happy if there were children in her new home.

Ellie will go to her Forever Home spayed, dewormed, heartworm tested, and up to date on all vaccinations including rabies. She is one of the sweetest dogs you could ever hope to meet and needs a family to make her life complete; could that family be yours?

For more information on Ellie or any of the pets available for adoption at Green Hills Animal Shelter, please phone the shelter at 660-359-2700 or stop by during open business hours.  Ellie and her fur-friends will be waiting to meet you!
