What is something you love about your pet? What else should someone know about your pet?: 
She loves nothing more than cuddling on the couch all day long, but she also loves to go on hikes, go swimming, and play fetch. She loves her Kong, she loves shredding sticks, and she loves playing tug of war. She has a lot of energy and will play a game as long as your are willing to. She needs a fenced-in area to play, as she tends to wander off pursuing interesting smells. If you have food, you will have her full attention; she enjoys obedience training and has a strong drive to please her human. She loves going to the dog park and to doggie daycare.
Has your pet lived with: 
How many hours is your pet home alone each day?: 
What does your pet dislike or fear?: 
Crates, kennels, small rooms, baby gates, tethers, and new places all make her feel anxious. When new people come over, she will jump on them, and she will never get used to anyone but her home family. She’s patient and loves children of all ages but, due to her excitability, she is better suited for a quiet home with children over 10 years old. The scar around her neck hints at a puppyhood spent tied up in a yard. Being able to calm down when excited will always be a challenge for her, as she was never properly socialized. Ellie can be a stinker around garbage cans; she has a strong instinct to find and eat things even remotely edible. She will need careful supervision, and dog-proofed house if left alone.
Where is your pet kept during the day?: 
Inside our home
Where does your pet sleep at night?: 
In our 9 year old's bed
How does your pet ride in the car?: 
Great, as long as she has on a harness and is tethered to the seat, she will sleep.
Please list any past or present injuries, treatment or other medical histories.: 
She ate some paper plates out of the trash, and had to be given a doggie tummy medication. She then stopped vomiting and passed the plates. She is allergic to beef and chicken, so needs special hydrolyzed protein food by prescription only.
