Breed: German Shepherd x Mastiff
Ellie is a 1-year-old GSD x Mastiff with a sweet and playful temperament. For one who has gone through so much at such a young age, including having her broken back leg amputated as a 2-month-old, Ellie is adaptable and easy-going, adjusting quickly to her new foster homes.
She is very energetic and excitable, loves to play and go on walks, and her ‘tripod’ status doesn’t slow her down in the slightest. Ellie loves meeting new people and other dogs but can be a bit of a Princess at home, making her ideal as an only pet. She is not suitable for a home with cats or chickens.
She understands basic commands like sit, down, stay, leave it, and come; however, Ellie is still young and has a cheeky streak, so she sometimes pushes the boundaries and needs ongoing training and reinforcement. She is very food motivated, though, which is helpful for training and makes her a fast learner!
At her core, Ellie is a sweetheart who brings so much joy to those around her and would be best suited as an only dog with a patient family who will continue her training.
Nutmeg has only 3 legs.
