Pet of the Week: Ellie

Meet this week’s Pet of the Week, a 4- to 5-year-old pittie mix named Ellie.

This adorable pup is very playful and silly, and adores just about any toy she can get her paws on. She likes to play fetch and tug of war (or just squeaking on her favorite squeaky toys).

Ellie loves to do zoomies around the yard, go for quiet hikes in the woods, and is even an excellent jogging companion. She knows “sit”, “come,” and is house-trained and crate-trained. Ellie likes to be with her people, and is a perfect snuggle buddy. She can be uncomfortable being left alone (we feel you, Ellie), so she’s looking for a home with a family who is around often to give her all the attention she deserves.

Although she’s a very happy pup, Ellie can be nervous of strangers. It takes her time to build confidence in new places, so she will need a patient adopter who won’t expect her to be the life of the party.

Ellie’s ideal home is a house (no apartments please) with a securely fenced yard and no other pets. She needs a home without kids under 12. Ellie is currently in foster care, so meeting her is by appointment only.

If you would like to meet Ellie, or learn more, please email Katherine at to request an adoption application. See Ellie’s full listing here.

Kitsap Humane Society is a private, nonprofit animal shelter that rescues and rehomes more than 6,000 pets every year. The Silverdale-based organization has a “lives saved” rate of over 95 percent, and never euthanizes an animal due to lack of space. In addition to caring for and adopting animals, Kitsap Human Society also provides spay/neuter services to low income residents of Kitsap County and Animal Rescue and Enforcement services to surrounding municipalities.
