ABOUT ME: I'm Ellie, an adorable Australian Shepherd who came from a cruelty case at the beginning of this year. I didn't have the best start in life, and I'm still pretty shy. I'm hoping to find a loving foster family to help me open up and begin to blossom into the amazing pupper I know I will be!

FOSTER REASON: I'm needing some help learning that the world isn't such a scary place.

FOSTER COMMITMENT: Minimum of six weeks, but hopefully until I find my forever family!

HOME REQUIREMENTS: I will need a calm, quiet home with a yard as I'm still timid in new places.

DOGS: I think I'd like a furry canine sibling to help show me the ropes!

KIDS: 15+ and please bring everyone in the home to meet me.

The Jan-Rees Jones Animal Care Center is open for adoptions every day from noon to 6:00 PM. Animals are available by walk-in on a first-come, first-served basis. Appointments are also available for select animals..

The SPCA of Texas completes rigorous medical and behavioral testing on every animal in our care. The organization fully discloses all known medical and/or behavioral conditions, including any incidents of biting or violent behavior toward a human, to all adopters and fosters. Despite the rigorous testing our veterinary and behavioral professionals conduct throughout every animal’s stay in our facilities, other new and/or unknown medical and/or behavioral conditions may manifest in any animal at any time. By adopting or fostering an animal from the SPCA of Texas, adopters and fosters acknowledge at the time of adoption or fostering that they may receive an animal with an undetected medical and/or behavioral condition and/or that a new medical and/or behavioral condition may appear at any time in the future. Any pet adopted from the SPCA of Texas can be returned to us at any time for any reason at no cost.
