Fostering Ellie

About a month ago I decided to start fostering dogs for our local SPCA chapter.

Ellie is our first dog to foster. We have had her for about a month. She is the active younger sister that our “old man” dog, Scout, never asked for. If her life had a motto it would be the same as Ricky Bobby’s from Talladega Nights, ” If you’re not first, you’re last.”

In the quieter moments she is an incredibly sweet dog who loves to cuddle, and guards the house from any strange noises as though our lives depend on it.ellecollageoption1
