Ellie


Adopted

7 Years

Fenced yard required

Ellie is a lovely tri-color smooth girl who found her way to Collie Rescue after her owner passed away. 

Ellie is friendly and warms up quickly to strangers. She loves attention and loves connecting with people. Ellie’s foster parents have found her to be quite endearing and have said, “Ellie has a cute way of turning her head when you’re talking to her.”
She is a very affectionate and playful girl who likes to be with her people. She shows little interest in the children who live next door but she might be just fine with older ones. 

She likes other animals although she doesn’t always know when to give them a break from her playful nature. Distracting her with toys would provide a break for her animal housemates. She especially likes plush toys, chew toys, rope toys, and loves to engage in play with people. Ellie would do best in a home with a fenced yard and would enjoy playing her favorite game of fetch. She always brings the toy back with a smile and a tail wag. Ellie needs a patient owner, someone who will take the time to work with her and to play with her. 

At seven or so years old, she has a bit of stiffness in her back legs, but this doesn’t stop her from playing with toys, herding the other family pets, or enjoying short walks where she can stop and sniff along the way. 

Ellie is adjusting to car rides but needs a bit of help getting in. She is comfortable being crated and prefers to sleep in her crate with the door open. She seems fine in the house when left alone for a couple hours. She knows a number of commands: sit, shake, treat, go outside, and speak. She needs further work with down and stop. Ellie is treat motivated, so with consistent effort, she will learn quickly. Sweet Ellie can be vocal. She will let you know inside the house when she wants something: a toy, a treat, or to play. When looking out the window, she will let you know if people or dogs are walking by. Otherwise, she is easy going and quiet, and she will settle down and relax.

Sweet Ellie is a lively, active girl and would be a fun loving addition to any family.
