How would you describe Ellie? A little fox with those pointed ears, pointed nose and bushy tail? A sprite who enchants everyone she meets? A funny girl who makes passers-by smile with delight? She's all that -- well, not really a fox.
Ellie is a year old miss who came into the shelter with her longer-haired sister. The girls were very shy, unfamiliar with the leash, and hesitant to show their real feelings. It didn't take long, though, for them to agree that two-legged creatures can be a lot of fun.
Ellie is a slight girl, the perfect size at about 18 pounds, and loves being out in the public eye. She's been kenneled with other dogs and enjoyed their company as well. We had Ellie at our weekend adoption event and, although one couple adored her, they decided they would have to wait for a dog of their own. So, Ellie was transferred to the Best Friends facility in Mission Hills.
Her ID number with L.A. City was A1366708. If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting Ellie, please let me know and I can find out what her new Best Friends ID number is. She's a gem.
Dusti is a doxie mix. Who isn't dusty at all. Rather, she's perfectly groomed and as spotless as a dog can be. Dusti's coat resembles that of a shepherd in its texture. She's a beautiful golden color with fur that catches the sunlight, glowing. And what lovely eyes she has. Dusti came in to the shelter after having a home where they obviously cared for her. She's well-socialized, tends to be on the quiet side but very sweetly so rather than shy. We had her at a mobile adoption event in Studio City where she met many people, some with their own dogs.
Her behavior was admirable all day long and the handlers who spent the afternoon with her couldn't stop raving. The day was a chilly one and between a Lakers game and the Grammy's, not many people came to the park.
Dusti wound up without a new family. However, she was taken by Best Friends to their facility in Mission Hills. If you are considering meeting Dusti, formerly known as A1122488 in the L.A. City shelter system, please let me know and I can retrieve her new ID number for you.
