Hello! My name is Ellie and I am a 2-year-old, 62 lb spayed female. I am already housetrained and crate-trained. I should be crated when left home alone.
I am friendly with new people after proper introductions and some time to warm up. I will actively seek affection from my people and enjoy pets! I do well with visitors as long as I can meet them when they come in the house—we had a holiday party at home with lots of people over and I did well with everyone. Fast movements can make me anxious, so I would prefer any children in my home to be older.
I love my dog friends although I can be selective about who I consider a friend. I love to wrestle with my foster sister and can play quite rough, so any other dogs in my home should have a similar play style. I like my toys and am learning how to play fetch! I cannot go to a home with cats.
I ride well in the car and enjoy tagging along for rides! My leash skills are a work in progress as I do pull quite a bit. I know sit very well and enjoy training so I would love a family willing to continue my obedience training! I would love to find an adopter local to the Chicagoland area so I can meet you before coming home. I am an energetic, loving girl ready to find my perfect adoptive family—could that be yours?

Echo Dogs fosters dogs in many states east of the Mississippi. Visit our Newcomers to see more of our dogs. Transportation for the adopted dog is available. Remember, we are an all-volunteer foster rescue organization - we DO NOT have a physical shelter to visit. Our minimum adoption donation is $300. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. Puppies under 6 months old may not be spayed/neutered. This would be the responsibility of the adopter at their own expense. Proof of spay/neuter will be required!
