Ellie, the 8-and-a-half-year-old American Bulldog, is the Helen Mirren of the doggy world, full of loveliness, wisdom, and grace! This gentle darling may be a little boisterous on occasion, but she possesses all the love and generosity of your most cherished grandparent. Ellie may regale you with tales of her youth; of how she used to bounce around without a care in the world, and how her startling beauty attracted the admiring glances of every male pooch in the town, but, though her litheness and athleticism may have somewhat diminished in the intervening years, she remains an absolutely gorgeous old girl. However she is now at that point in life where she recognizes the vital importance of the simple things in life; a nice, gentle stroll each day, good food, and a generous helping of tender, loving care. Her advancing years mean that it is of paramount importance that she finds a lovely home as soon as possible, to ensure that she can while away her remaining years with the comfort, safety, and love that she undoubtedly deserves.
Don’t let her age fool you though, she still packs some strength is those creaking bones and, as such, she will still require an owner who is capable of handling a larger dog. Her charming personality and loving temperament do however mean that she will be suitable with most any home environment, excluding those households with children under the age of 5 â€“ simply because of her size. She mixes well with other dogs, and would even be suitable with existing cats â€“ as long as introductions are done gradually and sensibly.
