Brief Bio:

Meet Ellie! Ellie is a lovely 8 mo old pit mix girl that is about 45-50lb. Ellie was brought to the San Jose Animal shelter after an anonymous call came in alerting the officers that someone had this little girl and was not taking care of her. Needless to say, officers came and confiscated her and before you knew it she was at the shelter waiting for help. Ellie had demodex mange (non-contagious) and her time was ticking fast. The longer she was at the shelter, the worst her condition got. Luckily she had lots of people rooting for her. (=

With the help of all her supporters and sponsors we were able to get her out of the shelter and now she is safe and recovering. Ellie is a sweet and mellow puppy who loves to follow you around and snuggle. Ellie is housebroken and is not a barker, she is also great with kids, good with dogs of all sizes and great with cats! Just a love bug!


Ellie has found her loving forever home with her loving foster home! After a year in foster care, Ellie’s foster mom has decided she is home to stay. Yay for Ellie! Thank you Rachel for stepping up to take Ellie in when she was a mangey puppy facing euthanasia, without you this lovely girl wouldn’t be where she is now! (=
