From New York, Jessup was able to find Ellie through searching online. It was her brother who lives in Florida who has been looking forward to adopting a Blue Lacy dog.
Since Jessup was a dog rescuer, her brother asked for help. Upon searching, Jessup came across a Dallas-based rescue group, TAGG Rescue, and that’s where she discovered Ellie.
Thankfully, Jessup had a friend in Texas who was willing to pick Ellie up. “So he got her out of the shelter with her teddy bear, and took her to this boarding facility, where they gave her a bath and made sure all of her paperwork was in order, and that she was fully vetted,” Jessup said.
Ellie spent a night at the boarding facility and was moved to a foster home until she was brought to Florida.
Although the young dog felt a little relieved when they brought her home, she still wanted her teddy bear around.
“The foster carer took a photo of her without her teddy bear, and she was curled up in a little ball, just scared to death,” Jessup said. “But when he put her back with her teddy bear, she just grabs it.”
Ellie and His New Daddy!
The TWD Transport, a company that moves rescue dogs around the country, drove Ellie all the way from Texas to Florida so she would finally meet her new dad. When Ellie finally got home, Jessup’s brother wanted to spend the day with his newly adopted dog.
According to Jessup, “She’s very timid, and the trip was a difficult one, so it will take a while for her to come out of her shell.”
Jessup is confident that her brother was the perfect match for Ellie.
Finally, the young Ellie is now settled in. Her new family is providing with all the love, affection and quiet time she needs.
