Ellie is very proportionate, functional and quick on her feet. Her eyes are a deep brown and she carries beautiful white markings on her face, neck, chest and all four feet. One of my favorite attributes of hers is her overall balance - she floats around & moves with such ease she often makes our other dogs like they are standing still.
Height = 16" at shoulder
Weight = 45lbs in shape
Ellie is a total love bug with her humans and regularly invades our space demanding to be scratched, patted and loved on. She is naturally drawn to her humans and enjoys spending time with us regardless of how exciting or boring we may be. She is loyal to her core and will stick by her person no matter what. She is goofy more often than not, but takes her "jobs" seriously and has a work ethic very similar to her mom Kali. She is super fun to work with and is overall a total pleasure to have around the house.
She is crate trained and loves her crate, but she can absolutely be trusted to hang out with the house to herself while at work without issues. We often refer to her as being "like a cat" in the home - she is quiet and is most concerned about finding a cozy spot to snuggle up in rather than finding toys to keep herself occupied. She does not have any separation anxiety and is fine hanging by herself. She is great for all care tasks including bathing, teeth checks, ear cleaning and nail trims. She goes into her crate or to her bed when requested as well.
She will do just about anything for a ChuckIt ball and will play fetch for as long as you let her. She is EXTREMELY smart and a very quick learner. Because of this, earning performance titles with her under judges was a total breeze. She has done formal weight pull training, rally obedience training and completed/graduated a scent work program. She also has 2/3 legs towards the highest IWPA (International Weight Pull Association) title available - Working Dog Superior (WDS) on wheels, as well as 2/4 legs towards her IWPA Working Dog (WD) title on snow.
She is very friendly and easy going with all of the dogs in our home (Woodsie, Kali, Willow & Brick) and engages in appropriate play and rest behavior with them. She enjoys roughhousing with the boys, but has shown some selectivity with certain dogs in the past so we do prefer if she goes to a home without other dogs just to rule out the possibility of a future disagreement altogether. She will be tested with cats prior to leaving so that her owner's can have all of the appropriate information to set her up for success.

NEW HOME REQUIREMENTS/EXPECTATIONS:
Ellie does not need to be a sport dog - she would be perfectly content playing ball in the backyard or house as a form of primary exercise. If someone wants to do some sport/training programs or haul her to competitions a few times a year she would love that, but she does not need to do these things to be happy. They are just fun outlets for her that she has easily excelled at.
Quiet and predictable home life is a must. She does not like surprises so a relatively consistent, uneventful (some might call "boring") quiet home life is super ideal for her. This also means no children (as they are full of surprises). Preferably no other dogs to prevent the possibility of an issue down the road, but that being said she does get along fabulously with all of the dogs in our home so it could be up for discussion.
Introvert? Perfect! Ellie is very much a "lets play ball in the backyard/house for 30 minutes and then watch a movie" type of dog. She loves spending quality time with her owners but truly doesn't mind hanging by herself if her owner works long hours either. She is an introvert at heart and doesn't love being forced into social settings with lots of new, unpredictable things going on (same girl, same).
Must be willing to work with a trainer to avoid issues developing. Ellie is extremely smart, well trained and overall a super pleasurable dog to be around but her not liking surprises can turn into negative reactions if she is set up for failure repeatedly. We have tons of resources to share on all topics regarding dogs and will be working on some training videos starring Ellie in the coming weeks that will be shared with her future owners. We just want to make sure that Ellie & her new owners get started off on the right foot and working with a good trainer will ensure that.
Must be willing to treat their dog, like a dog. Humanizing your dog is cute, but can be very dangerous especially with a strong capable breed. Ellie is an adorable little introvert that loves a good snuggle but we still need to remind ourselves that she has teeth and a brain that is just barely larger than a walnut. The ideal owner for her will know these things (despite how much they love her) and understand that individual dogs have individual limitations, and will make use of training tools that aid in maintaining flawless behaviors and boundaries.
Ellie will be available on a PET HOME CONTRACT only. This means that she is not allowed to be used for breeding under any circumstances - though she checks almost all of the boxes we search for in a breeding dog, our primary concern is finding her a fabulous home that loves her for her goofy personality. Ellie has never been used for breeding and we do not plan on introducing her into our breeding program at this time. The pet home contract is laid out with the intention of protecting the dog for their lifetime, and includes lifetime breeder & training support.
