We have been fostering Ellie for 3 months now and love her to death! Over this time we suspect/notice that she was treated VERY poorly wherever she was before, as she is constantly flinching to an outreached hand or fast movement and has never seen toys or used a blanket (most dachsies love to burrow of course). She has been extremely shy and timid for months and then on Friday night, she played with me for the FIRST time! It was the sweetest thing to see her finally starting to get comfortable and come out of her little shell! Jason and I love her and don't want her to have to start over with a new family to get use to. I know that she isn't technically "Available" for adoption yet but since we want to keep her forever anyway, we would like to talk with/ contact someone about adopting Ellie Rose!

The change in Ellie from February to today is amazing! She was so scared at first, I didn't see her wag her tail once for a month! Nowadays, I like to call her Little Miss Tail-Wags! She's such an angel! Ellie is a such a wonderful addition to our family so thank YOU ALL for bringing her into our lives! :)
