Ellie

Friday, January 14th, 2011

Young-at-heart, ­­senior girl Ellie knows that the secrets to happiness lie in sharing your joy and love with everyone you meet; savoring quiet times with your family and friends; and enjoying your ride through life. Ellie has also figured out that you must choose your outlook on life, and her pick is to embrace it with such loving gusto that she inspires everyone around her to feel the same. If you would love a companion who enjoys nice long walks, companionable sit-downs on the porch to watch the world go by, playing some games together, and, at the end of the day, cuddling up on the couch, enjoying a nice belly rub, and settling in to watch your favorite TV shows, then our Ellie is for you. Sweet Ellie is a down-to-earth bundle of love who is low maintenance and happy to go with the flow. This serene lady is secure enough in her own skin that traveling around and hanging out with her favorite stuffed toys is no problem for her. Blessed with a sensitive, kindly heart, Ellie knows how to support her canine brothers and sisters in times of need. When she senses that one of her friends is scared or nervous, Ellie’s got their back and will help them through by showing them how to overcome their anxieties. She’s all heart, this girl! This quintessential sweetheart of a dog will add a calming serenity to your life and, when those soulful, liquid brown eyes of hers meet yours at the end of a long day, you’ll know that you are home, and that you are loved.

Cedar

Friday, January 14th, 2011

You would be so impressed on A cedar tree is known for its beauty, strength, and resilience. Well, those are the very qualities you will find in our Cedar, a gorgeous lab mix. Almost ten years old, Cedar has sadly spent the majority of his life in and out of shelters. As a bright-eyed, happy-go-lucky pup, he ended up in a home full of boisterous behaviors, loud, scary noises, and utter chaos. As you can imagine, for an innocent, wee puppy these experiences were frightening, and memories of those times have left him kind of vulnerable – easily scared and anxious, so he needs a guardian angel who will understand his fears and love him unconditionally. It’s important for Cedar to be with an experienced caregiver who will protect him and help him to feel safe if the going gets rough. He just longs for the time when he will find his forever home – that special place for him where he will feel the unfailing love and protection of someone who has the compassion to understand his needs for stability, peace, and safety. Despite the fact that Cedar’s life has been challenging and disappointing for him as people have not always done right by him, he still has the optimism to believe that love conquers all. Although a bit shy at first, when you get to know Cedar, this boy will open up his heart to you – hugging, kissing, and wagging to beat the band. He just needs to be able to shine his light, and you will be dazzled by the beautiful soul that he is. Cedar has worked very hard to be the best boy he can be. He is an expert walker and handles the leash like a pro. He is exemplary at knowing cool things like “Sit” and “Stay”. He is a perfect gentleman around the house – laidback, playful, quiet, and dignified. Share a walk and some relaxed, quiet time with Cedar at Francisvale and get to know what a special boy he is. You won’t be sorry!
