Ellie is a 2 year old hound who was rescued as a stray after coming up to one of Henrico’s volunteers who was out walking her own dogs. Ellie, fondly known at her foster home as Ellie the love-bug, is just about the sweetest hound you will ever meet. They swear she has the soul of a lab 😊 Ellie is house trained, knows the command “go potty” and loves belly rubs and walks. She is gentle on leash and easy to redirect. Ellie is great with other dogs, loves saying hello while out and is gentle when playing. She would do wonderfully in a home with another med-level energy dog that likes to play but also likes to relax. She bonds quickly with her humans and loves meeting new people. At bedtime she will go into and sleep in a crate but much prefers to cuddle up in her doggy bed. Ellie would be a fantastic and loving addition to any home!
If you have an interest in Ellie we recommend and encourage you to complete an online application before coming to our next adoption event. Adoption events are every Saturday, excluding holidays, at the Petco located at 11331 W. Broad Street, Glen Allen, VA (next to Trader Joe’s) from 11:00am to 2:00pm. The online application can be found at henricohumane.org. A volunteer will respond as soon as possible, typically within 48 hours.
Please Note: Not all of our dogs attend each event so to find out if the dog you are interested in will be attending the next adoption stand, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
