Meet Elly! A playful pup looking for new guardians that can keep up with her. She adores toys, balls are absolute favourite. Her fetch game is on point.
Elly has a few needs in her new fur-ever home:
*Experienced dog savvy guardians. Once Elly gets to know you she is silly, affectionate & playful. She loves to do somersaults into your lap! She can be very nervous when meeting new people. She has grown up during COVID times and was not able to work on socializing a lot outside of her home.
*Adult only home, no tiny humans please. Elly has previously lived in a home with children, it was a bit too overwhelming for her at times. She will thrive in a calm active home with big humans only.
*Ongoing positive reinforcement based training to help her slowly overcome some of her anxieties such as: nervous of new situations, meeting new people & dogs, walking at night.
*A yard for her to play in to get her sillies out while she works on building her confidence going on new adventures.
Elly has previously attended a structured dog daycare where she did very well meeting & playing with some furry friends. Dog parks at this time are not for her, as meeting too many new puppers at one time makes her a bit nervous. She may do well in a home with another confident easy going dog if they are a match for each other. No feline friends in the home for Miss Elly at this time.
Potential adopter’s will need to meet this gal a few times prior to transitioning her into their home to ensure she is set up for success!
