From the Foster:

Ellie is a young sweet girl who is quickly learning to "dog." She is crate trained and only fusses for a few minutes before settling in. She loves to play with stuffies and chewies and our resident young border collie mix. 
 
She is still a bit shy, but she is definitely gaining confidence. She initially does best with limited eye contact, no sudden movements, and calm voices. As long as everyone in the home is relatively calm and predictable she will snuggle up on the couch with you and loves to have gentle pets. Her next big hurdle is learning that leashes are fun. We have tried to walk her, but she's not there yet. She will require a fenced yard - at least until she learns more about leashes.
 
Her house training is coming along really well. She goes all night in her kennel with no accidents. She does pace and whine when she needs to go out. If you don't let her out, she will use a potty pad.
 
Ellie is such a sweet love who is looking for a family with patience and love to help her be her best self. She loves to snuggle up on the couch next to her people, but her favorite thing to do is wrestle and play with other dogs! She has never been aggressive in any way and is just trying to figure out how to be a dog. She will do best in a home without very young children and with another dog who can show her the ropes.
