Dog number 5. Her family called us in the first month of launching DC Dog Runner and has now been with us for over five years! From her running style to her days (Tuesday - Thursday - Saturday) she’s as close to an automatic runner as there is in The District. She comes from a Duke family, but we won’t hold that against her! Only kidding, sort of, she and her family were early supporters of our little outfit here and we’re so happy she continues with us to this day!
Her nephew Neville (Australian Shepherd) joins us on weekends and is the energetic opposite to the typically low-key Ellie. It’s funny watching her get worked up randomly when she sees a pup that she’s had beef with before. She stays mostly silent except when she snorts a bit and wipes her front paw like a bull ready to charge. She’s never the instigator but always ready for the challenge!
We’re so glad to continue the relationship and keeping her in excellent physical condition as she ages - now 9!
