Ellie, a one-year-old Blue Lacy, lived with her family near Dallas, Texas, until the day they decided they no longer wanted her.
They dumped her at the shelter with her teddy bear, and she just sat there clinging to it not knowing what was going on, writes ilovemydogsomuch.tv
The family even went through the trouble of getting her spayed, microchipped, and all of her necessary shots just months before abandoning her. Now she was all alone in a loud and scary shelter that euthanizes for space when needed.
Jennifer’s friend went to pick Ellie up to take to a boarding facility where she could make sure the paperwork was in order and the dog could get a bath. After spending the night there, Ellie headed to a foster home until she could be moved to Florida. She felt better in an actual home but still clung to her teddy bear.
Even when the foster family tried snapping a photo of Ellie without her teddy, she huddled up in fear. When given the toy back, she grabbed ahold as if to never lose it again.
But then the day had finally come for Ellie to meet her new dad! TWD Transport took the sweet girl and delivered her to Florida from Texas.
Jennifer knew deep down this was the perfect place for the dog and her teddy bear, and it really showed!
Ellie greatly calmed down and started to relax after receiving lots of love and attention from a new owner who’d never even think of dumping her the way her former one did. Here’s to a brand new beginning!
