Highly affectionate is an understatement with Ellie. She loves cuddling with her people and getting pets and is generous with her kisses. The APA volunteers rave about her vivacious happy tail wag and wiggle walk that she'll get when she sees a friend approaching. It's absolutely precious!
Ellie is very sweet-natured and enjoyed her canine playgroups at the shelter. She is a big fan of going for walks and jogs, but is equally as thrilled to lounge with her people around the house or keeping herself entertained by chewing on a toy. Ellie is currently in foster and has shown that she can be left home alone successfully.
This smart pup was also in APA!'s Total Obedience Program before going to foster. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Ellie had a personalized training plan and worked with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn the skills to become the best dog she can be! Ellie has worked on skills like sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," as well as 'place' (running to and staying in a designated spot) and coming when called. As a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with Ellie after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together.
