Pit bulls have a bad reputation, but Ellie is living proof that they deserve much better. This gorgeous one-year-old pit mix is perhaps the calmest, best-natured dog who’s ever visited us at WCHL. She sat patiently, never barking or jumping, and she gladly accepted petting. Best of all, she gets along perfectly with everyone from adults and children to other pets. And at only 40 pounds, she’s an ideal size, neither too big nor too small. We think Ellie is the dog that will change your mind about pits, and now she can be a part of your family.
