In Memoriam


Update: January 4, 2011 – The Big Heart Rescue team sends out their heartfelt condolences to Mark and Shannon as they grieve the loss of their beautiful girl Ellie.  For the last five years Ellie knew nothing but love, kindness, gentle hands and a warm safe home.  May memories of time spent together warm your heart and bring contentment in the days to come.

Ellie was found in a parking lot on Vancouver Island by Victoria Animal Control. She was starving, emaciated and her calcified nails caused her difficulty when walking. Thankfully, Victoria Animal Control worked in partnership with Big Heart Rescue to have this girl moved into a loving foster home where she is recovering and showing her true beautiful self. Ellie’s foster Mom notes that this darling girl LOVES to swim and fetch.  Off leash parks are the joy of her day and lying by the fireplace in the evening is the best place to rest after a full and busy doggie day.

Update: January

It’s hard to believe that Ellie once looked like this and in just a few short months she has become a beauty Queen!

Ellie has been hard at work with a trainer to bring her social manners and obedience training to a higher level. She has gained weight, filled out and is now at a comfortable 52 lbs.

This dignified and stunning girl is looking for an active and dog experienced family with a securely fenced yard and who will take her to the beach for swimming.

Update: February

Sweet Ellie has found her home on the island with new parents Shannon and Mark. She also has a great dog friend named Cedar and lots of cats to keep her company.

Currently Ellie is sound asleep in front of the wood fire place cuddled up next to Cedar….oh, the life of an islander!

A huge thank you to Foster Mom Diane for making all the difference in this girl’s life and to Shannon and Mark for giving her the gift of a new loving family.
