Looking for her forever herd..err, pack!

Hey hey! I am Ellie and I have just learnt that I am not an opossum, or an elephant either! I am a 3 year old, female Lab mix. I am about 40 lb of sheer delight! I was rescued from TJ by TAP as a part of the Ice-Age movie gang and they think that I have had a few of my own Peaches pups in the past in the past. I wish I could talk, so I could tell them stories! I have been a darn good foster dog and have picked up bathroom and leash training perfectly. I am very good in the crate at night. My family leaves me outside the crate when alone at home, and I just pass out on the couch.

Being a good dog is no mammoth task to me! It simply is natural because I am such a sweetheart. I am pretty chilled out with moderate energy level. I love to play and I can become a tad extra with just one favorite member of the family. I get a little mouthy with them, but with the rest I am really good. Key is to keep my stimulation under control! After all played out, I love to cuddle up and get a bunch of affection. I do trust and open up slowly but it’s so worth the wait. I like the big outdoors and spending time hiking or in the yard. I recently graduated from a training program where I learned some extra manners for when I am around other dogs. I would do just fine in a home with or without other pets as long as I am given time for a gentle introduction, but no puppies please. One important thing to note, I can be selectively dog reactive and my foster mama thinks it stems from being protective. I  may need some extra help to learn that I can chill out and not be protective. Because of my mouthy play style at times, I am better suited for kids older than 5.

I am just nice, nice baby! If you want a cuddly elephant, look no further! I would be your best bud through hikes, and couch times. My calm temperament along with short bursts of playtimes make me a solid entertainer. I am a lover of belly rubs and if you are a giver, I think we’d be perfect. Come and say hi! My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
