    Shelter Dog Sunday - Ellie

    NewsShelter Dog SundayFriday 22 December 2017

    Every Sunday we run a special feature on a rescue dog looking for a loving home. This week, the spotlight is on Ellie, a sweet girl with a heart of gold who will be very happy to spend her adulthood with a forever family. 

    Battersea Dogs and Cats Home is the well-known backdrop of ITV's Paul O'Grady - For The Love Of Dogs but what you see on the show is only a fraction of the work that the shelter do. Battersea takes on over 9000 cats and dogs a year, including Ellie, an affectionate girl looking for a loving forever home.

    Name: Ellie

    Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback

    Sex: Female

    Age: 6 years 10 months

    Centre: London

    Reference: 358140

    This lovely shy lady has a huge heart of gold and will be utterly devoted to her new family.

    This six-year-old can be quite worried at first and can take a little while to open up.

    But it is absolutely worth putting in the time to earn her trust as - once she get to know you - she’s a wonderfully, playful, sweet girl.

    Ellie's new owners will need to be kind, sympathetic people who can take her under their wing and slowly introduce her to their way of life.

    Ideally, they will have some experience with a cautious dog so that they can help to bring out the best in this timid girl, who tries her best to brave.

    If you feel that you could help Ellie find her courage, please contact Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s London centre on 0843 509 4444.
