From the Foster:
Ellie is a young sweet girl who is learning to "dog." She's so pretty and sweet and is learning that people are not scary. She is crate trained and only fusses for a few minutes before settling in. She doesn't always want to go into the kennel so she needs to be bribed with treats. She loves to play with stuffies and chewies and our resident young border collie mix.
She is still wary of people, but is learning that people aren't scary. She initially does best with limited eye contact, no sudden movements, and calm voices. Her next big hurdle is learning that leashes are fun. Right now she does ok with the leash on as long as you aren't holding it. We haven't tried any walks yet due to her anxiety and all the ice. We are also working on basic commands like coming when you call her name, but she's not quite mastered it yet.
She uses puppy pads like a champ! We are working on house training, but she definitely isn't there yet.
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 - on her own terms. 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 young children and with another dog who can show her the ropes.
