Pet of the Week: Ellie

Newport dogs need you! … And we’ve got the perfect pup for you to rescue who needs a forever home.

Ellie is a Australian cattle dog who weighs in at a petite 35lbs.  The white specks on her back are typical of the breed and aren’t a sign of her going gray– she’s only 11 months old!

She’s known as a blue-heeler due to her dark color as a cattle dog, and her breed is amongst the most intelligent dog breeds, making her easily trainable, in addition to being energetic and extremely agile.
