| We adopted Elli only a month ago but it feels like she has been a part of our family forever! When she first arrived she was very shy, and spent a lot of time snuggled in our laps, but now a month on she has really come out of her shell. She loves going for walks, playing with our three children and going to work with Dad - who has been training her, she loves treats so she has been a fast learner! She still loves to be snuggled, and will try to curl up in our laps - she isn't exactly what you would call a small dog! She is still wary of new people, and is frightened easily but we are hoping with time this will pass. We just love her so much and we can't believe how lucky we are to have found such a beautiful, kind natured dog. Thank you Humane Society for all the amazing work you do.
