Meet Ellie

Add to favourites

Meet Ellie! At almost three years old, this sweet girl is looking for a special home. Ellie is a gorgeous bloodhound who carries all the hallmarks of the breed. Weighing in at 85 pounds, she is a big girl. She walks relatively well on leash but if she catches the scent of something good, she can get a bit side tracked!

This wrinkly girl also displays other classic bloodhound traits such as her high energy level, strong prey drive, and love of “singing”. As such Ellie will not be suitable for a family with small children, living in a shared building or with close neighbours, and/or free ranging small animals. Although friendly with other dogs, Ellie is prone to resource guarding with her canine cohorts and so would do best as the only dog in the home. She does do well with dog savvy cats though!

Ellie has suffered from extreme allergies for most of her short life, causing terrible ear and eye infections. Because of this, she will need to be on medication and a special diet to manage that for life.
She is smart and very food motivated making positive reinforcement training techniques a blast!

This velvety lady makes her feelings known by singing you the song of her people, which is why neighbours in close proximity will make a home incompatible for Ellie. Her future guardians would benefit from consulting with an AnimalKind trainer.

Ellie’s ideal home would be with guardians who have experience with strong, high prey drive dogs (such as large scent hounds/rhodesian ridgebacks/catahoulas/other large game hunting breeds) and who can give her all the snuggles she requires.
