Additional Details:

Nothing bad about Ellie, she is actually a very shy and timid greyhound. Ellie is a small, brindle girl that raced at 58lbs. She raced 6 races in Sarasota and did win one of them. She pulled up in her last race and did not finish the race. That was in April of 2015. She ended up being sent to Birmingham to race then, but as far as we can tell never actually raced there and went into the Birmingham Track Adoption Kennel soon after she arrived. Ellie is a very shy girl that didn't do that well in the kennel atmosphere, so we were asked to help them get her into a quieter foster home. She got along well with the other dogs but is afraid of people she doesn't know and takes a long time to warm up. This isn't because of abuse or anything bad that happened to her. It is genetic and she is naturally very jumpy and scared of everything. She is a dog that will take time to warm up to her new family and isn't likely to enjoy going places. She needs a family that will be patient with her and let her just be a homebody. Ellie will turn 3 on June 22nd. Her sire is Lo Norman and her dam is PG Bad News. Because she is so afraid of everything outside, she doesn't walk well on leash and tends to freeze or bolt if she gets scared. Her foster home is working on her leash skills in their safely fenced yard. Ellie does need a home with a fenced yard because she is likely to be too afraid to go for walks outside her comfort zone. She is very good with cats and sleeps with the cat in her foster home. Ellie is very quiet in her crate and likes the security of her kennel. Ellie would probably be afraid of young, noisy, fast moving kids and needs a home with older quiet kids or no kids. She is slowly warming up to her foster family and is adjusting to life in a home. She is doing really well and sleeps on the bed with the other dogs and cats. It is so rewarding when the really shy dogs come around and start to trust and love their new family! Ellie is a very good girl.
