Meet Ellie

Ellie is a loyal loving companion. She loves to greet you with a wagging tail and smile at you with her big brown eyes. Although still young she is very quick to learn as she now sits and waits excitedly for her dinner to be placed before her and nd being a typical labrador, her food is finished before you can blink! She loves the company of people and plays very well with the other dog at her carer's home. She is a big dog and may knock little ones over, but never intentionally! She would suit a sedentary lifestyle, perhaps an older family as Ellie has some health concerns and pants very loudly and becasue of this she would really suit a sedentary life. Ellie can be nervous in new situations and around new people (until she realises there is no threat), she therefore doesn't travel well in the car. She sleeps outside for the time being but would love to curl up on the couch for a tummy rub whenever possible. Her favourite position is on her back, at your feet - asking for tummy rubs! Ellie also bounces like Tigger and will make anyone very happy if she is included as part of their family.

Ellie was adopted on 15 June 2009 after 7 months in foster care
