My story

My story

Ellena was rescued and brought to PACK in 2015 when she was only 8 months old. She’s always been so lovely, companionable, and energetic that everyone fell in love with her right away. Hence our ray of sunshine Ellena has started her journey with us ever since.

Ellena

Personality

Ellena is very active and affectionate. She could get really excited when she sees someone she's familiar with. When it comes to meeting strangers, she would first observe you from a distance for some time, but once you’ve earned her trust, she would become really attached to you! She's also very expressive and always wears her heart on her sleeve. It takes Ellena longer to adapt to a new environment with her high sensitivity to sounds. Especially when she is left alone without her owner, she tends to be uneasy and shows obvious signs of separation anxiety. Ellena is also possessive of her owner.

My Behavior

My Behavior

When you see our ray of sunshine, Ellena, happily spinning in circles or looking at you with her signature bright smile, that’s her unique way to invite you to play with her, pet her, or give her a proper massage that she enjoys the most! Ellena tends to be a bit nervous and vigilant when facing other dogs, and she would also respond to fierce dogs that turn down her invitation to play together. As for cats, Ellena tends to keep her distance out of unfamiliarity. Being possessive of her owner, Ellena also gets jealous when the owner is petting other dogs at the same time and might wrinkle her nose to warn other dogs. And if the owner has been away for too long, she would show obvious signs of separation anxiety. Ellena might get overexcited and a bit out of control when she sees people she likes or before eating. Sometimes you may have to ignore her for a bit and wait for her to calm down patiently before moving on. TEST DELETE
