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.

Gouda

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Who wouldn’t want to add an extra helping of sweetness, joy, and love into their lives? Well, if the answer to that question is “Me, I would!!”, then we have the girl for you! Gorgeous Gouda, a long-time resident at Francisvale, is an undiscovered treasure. She is outgoing, affectionate, and playful, loving to get her belly rubbed and to play chase with her balls. She is sure to bring a smile to your face as she companionably relaxes with you, sunning herself on the windowsill and happily accepting treats from her best friend. Gouda is laid-back and easy-going…just look into those mesmerizing green eyes, and you can see that she epitomizes the ideals of peaceful contentedness and living in the moment. When you come to Francisvale, ask for Gouda by name. She tends to be a bit shy when people come to visit at the shelter, and she hides her light under a basket. But, if you give Gouda a chance to shine in a home of her own, you will be delighted with the beautiful little soul you selected. When it comes to unconditional love, Gouda is tops!

Sophia

Whether with her toys or her treats, she is an all in playgirl! Like her counterpart femme fatale, Sophia will wrap you around her wee paw with her willingness to snuggle and be loved. Our girl considers it part of her job description to follow you around and keep you company in all you do. Those household chores will just fly by when you have such an interested and willing companion by your side. Sophia is just not another­­ pretty face, though. She has her quirky side that makes her all that more interesting to get to know. So, if you’re interested in learning more about this international kitty of mystery, sets your sights on Sophia and let the magic begin!
