Brief Bio:

Meet Ellie! Ellie was rescued along with her litter mates when they were found abandoned on the side of the road inside a box. Thankfully a rescuer was able to spot the puppies before they made it onto the streets. Ellie and her litter mates were brought to the vet for a full check up and moved into a foster home shortly after. Ellie is a sweet and playful girl who loves to be around people and play with other dogs. Ellie is a very smart girl an would love nothing more then to find a home to call her own. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Ellie is patiently waiting! 


When we began looking for a new addition to our family, we knew that we had to be very careful with our choice - with two cats and two dogs already, any new addition could substantially upset the balance of the household.
Love and Second Chances did everything possible to reduce our concerns, by sending videos of her with cats, and with dogs, and in carriers, and everything else we could think of that might be an issue. Any time we had a concern, they would go out and put her in that situation in order to show us how she would respond. And after all that, the two week trial/foster period gave us a perfect chance to let the household reset itself with the new addition, so we knew exactly how she would fit in before we needed to make a decision.
All that said, we fell in love with Ellie (now named Bayley) the moment that she stepped out of her kennel at the airport. Bayley has fit in so well with the family (though despite her best efforts, the cats won’t wrestle with her). She and our seven year old dog Bil chase each other around the house all day, sharing toys and food. Our fourteen year old dog Nico sometimes joins in too, which is always great to see given his age and health issues.
She is smart, playful, loves to learn new things (her puppy training is going incredibly well), and is a joy to be around. We are so grateful to have her in our lives now. -Meg and Tom
