Ellie’s  Page


My name is Ellie, which means "shining light".  I'm sure thankful to Middle TN Golden Retriever Rescue for saving me in October 2009 because I wasn't being cared for properly, and one of my legs was injured.  I'm all better now, and my life since adoption by my forever family has been pawfect!  I usually don't go more than a few minutes without being petted or kissed by my parents.  They like to say that they didn't rescue me; instead, I rescued them with my sweet, patient, bright and loving spirit!  I really like learning and bringing people joy!  I have taken several doggie classes, and after a lot of practicing, praise, and studying I was able to become a Canine Good Citizen and also a registered Delta Society Pet Partner.  I love listening to children read stories.  My tail is wagging right now just thinking about it!  My favorite stories are ones about hope, and also stories with happy endings just like my life story.  When I am not visiting with children or the elderly some of my favorite things to do are: taking long walks, playing fetch with a tennis ball, or chewing on a bone.  I have a real fascination with squirrels and rabbits and love to watch them from our back window.  I also love to greet everyone that comes to our house with a stuffed animal "baby" in my mouth.  When I'm not lounging around I am usually on the computer checking my emails from my friends, so I would pawsitively love to hear from you!
