Ellie is a 1-year-old hound who has known nothing but serious neglect in her short life. She is very tiny (only 18 pounds; you can count all her bones), and she won't grow to normal basset size because she's been so malnourished. Sometimes we really wonder how people can be so cruel. Fortunately, Ellie's luck has changed. A kindhearted volunteer rescued her, vetted her, and is now showing Ellie the love, attention, and care she has never known but dearly deserves. Ellie is a loving girl with many bright years ahead. Are you the special someone lucky enough to adopt her? Please apply today!
Foster Update (1/31/11): With a bath, a trip to the vet and a steady diet, Ellie is now making a quick recovery! She loves eating, sleeping in her bed and having her belly rubbed. She even seems to like her baths. She gets along well with the other dogs in the house, but is more interested in getting love from people than playing with her new friends! She's learning crate-training & house-breaking, but she's new to being an inside dog. The healthier she gets, the more her fun personality shines through! We are working on leash walking and she’s slowly getting the hang of it, but Ellie is still a work in progress.
