Eleanor — ADOPTED!

eleanorEleanor is a 2 year old English Mastiff. She is shy at first and needs some socialization with dogs. She is more timid of them than anything. She is really doing well and is starting to get comfortable. What a sweetheart!

eleanorsnewfamilyUPDATE:  Ellie was adopted by a wonderful family in early May. They have adopted two dogs from us in the past, starting with Bella who was a 6 month old St. Bernard they adopted almost 10 years ago. A few years later, they adopted Max from us. Bella recently passed away and Max needed a buddy, so Erin contacted me to see if we had a nice brother or sister for Max. I thought Ellie would be the perfect fit and it definitely was. She will have a wonderful home full of love!
