Hi, my name is Ellie!  My family took very good care of and kept me UTD with shots, heartworm and tick preventative. They loved me very much but I am very nervous around little kids and as they have a 2 year old and a baby on the way they made the hard decision to ask BBR to find me a new home without kids under 12.

I really don’t have any problems outside of the kid thing. I have my own plush bed that came with me but I like sleeping with my people and lounging around on the sofa. But if you insist I am happy with my bed that my family sent with me. They even bought me a beautiful car seat that I can ride in to my new family. I sleep in a kennel while you aren’t home and trot right in like a good girl. I have one of those too that my family bought me. I am very affectionate and dance when you come home. I live with 5 other dogs in my foster home and get along with them and try to get them to play with me. I’m not much of a barker unlike those crazy dachshunds in my foster home.

My foster mom is looking for a home for me with kids older than 12. I would be happy as an only dog but I can get along with others.  I have made great improvements in the sharing department.  I am more comfortable if I can be the one to approach new people or pets.  Quick movement around me does make me nervous.  I’m not sure about cats but I am curious about them and I didn’t chase the one I saw.  I recently had a dental cleaning and got to keep all my teeth, though I also had some lumps removed at the same time.
