|A Better English Setter Rescue
|We found this beautiful sweetheart in a shelter in AL.
Here she is on her freedom ride to her foster home, offering to drive the first leg, if needed.
|This happy girl never lost her enthusiasm on her two day trip, complete
with an overnight B&B.
The other dogs in Dad’s pack are all males.
I had to lay down the law the first day I was here.
I did something Dad had never seen before. I sat down, rolled back on
my haunches, and had a boxing match with one of his dogs - punching
him with my front paws. Dad laughed and laughed. Now they all respect
me even though a couple are jealous, but we get along.
I would prefer a one dog environment and hope that being strong and
intelligent won’t get in the way.
My strength may be a problem for small children.
I know nothing of cats but have shown no prey aggression.
I spend a good deal of time lying at Dad’s feet just waiting for the next
stroke on the muzzle or pat on the head.
He constantly tells me “Ellie is a Good Dog!” And, now, I know I am.
He calls me his Panda Bear, whatever that is, but mostly just Ellie.
I’m such a happy girl that I talk on special occasions saying “Ahwooo,
ahwoo, ruff” not too loudly, and only when I am excited about going out,
or want some of Dad’s special attention.
|My name is Ellie II and I am a 4-year-old,
spayed, beautiful Tri colored gal.
It’s hard to say who I am, other than a great dog.
My foster Dad has learned that I am so much more dog than anyone knew
before. They thought I didn’t like men: my foster Dad knows better.
He is interested in me and shows me affection and is always checking me out
and petting me, so I know he cares.
He believes that I am a combination of English Setter and maybe Malamute
because I have very heavy fur, small ears, and fully webbed front feet. My
rear feet are not fully webbed. I get hot and love to lie on the cool tile floors.
Dad says I don’t know my own strength, and he should know because we
play often in the morning on the bed and I can be a little rough, and then he
draws the line with “Be Gentle,” and I am.
I go all four paws up and love my belly rubbed.
I even stand and wait for him while he puts my leash on so we can go
outside. When we get outside, I do my business promptly.
|I have very little idea of my original name but give
me a forever home and call me what you will.
I am all girl dog, loving, and loyal to a fault.
