14/2/12 Ellie sadly became ill and had to be put to sleep.
Beautiful Ellie is an 8 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback girl who is being rehomed by RSPCA Chesterfield & North Derbyshire branch.
Poor Ellie was abandoned in a field by her previous owner and was rescued by the RSPCA. She has proved to be a very friendly dog with a placid, gentle nature.
Ellie loves to be around people and enjoys attention. She is not great around other dogs and does sometimes grumble at them, however she has lived with cats without any problems. She could live with children aged 7+, provided they are used to dogs. She is a very well-behaved dog and should settle into most homes.
Ellie has arthritis in some joints and can be a little unsteady at times. Her new owner will need to be understanding of this and make sure she gets regular check ups with the vet. She is housetrained and has been neutered.
Ellie is a sweet-natured dog who will make a fantastic companion!
