If ‘calm, sweet, and loving’ sounds like a dream pup, then you’re in luck! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Ellie, a 5 years old terrier mix from Starkville, Mississippi. She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on her vaccines. Ellie is a friendly dog that does well with other canines. In fact, Ellie would probably do great with kids and other pets, too, provided that they share their kind temperament- but be sure to check with her rescuers beforehand.
This sweet little gal was surrendered to the rescue with two other dogs and has been looking for a furever home ever since. Despite the unfortunate circumstances she found herself in, Ellie kept her kind and loving spirit- she makes fast friends with anyone she meets! She is quiet and calm and would do best with owners that are easy-going and laid-back as she is. Ellie will return the love you give tenfold- she adores getting belly rubs, ear scratches and pooch snuggles more than anything else in the world.
Loyal and loving, Ellie is also very well-mannered and knows how to behave properly. She does great on a leash and has been socialized around other dogs so it wouldn’t be a problem for her if she has to share her new home with four-legged siblings. She hasn’t had the chance to be tested around young kids and cats since coming to the shelter, but having in mind her sweet disposition, it’s highly likely that Ellie would do fine in both situations- however, it’s best to do a little meet beforehand.
In case that Ellie sounds like a pooch that would fit right in your family, don’t hesitate to contact Oktibbeha County Humane Society to learn more about her and what the adoption process is like. Fingers crossed- she really is a special gal!
A proud mama to seven dogs and ten cats, Angela spends her days writing for her fellow pet parents and pampering her furballs, all of whom are rescues. When she’s not gushing over her adorable cats or playing with her dogs, she can be found curled up with a good fantasy book.
