Ellie finally reunites with her dad after 18 months

Ellie loves her dad more than everything in the world. There’s nothing she wouldn’t do to be with him. But when the time comes, her dad had to make the gut-wrenching decision to give her up. Ellie thought she would never see him again. But their fate intervened at just the right time.


Cara Seiler of Canine Haven Rescue Inc. said that they were contacted in June 2021 by their vet office to take Ellie. “Her owner was a client there, and he had just lost his wife and had to move in with his daughter [who] didn’t allow him to bring Ellie,” she said.


It wasn’t an easy decision, but Ellie’s dad had to trust that she would be taken care of.

She went into a foster home where she remained for a year and a half with zero interest from potential adoptions. Her dad had kept in contact and even sent her toys and a jacket. Ellie is a very sweet and loving girl. But no one knew why nobody ever applied to adopt her.

Ellie’s dad kept a close watch on her throughout they are apart. When he gets to know that she was still there, they heard tears in his voice. He then said he was moving in with his sister in South Carolina and she loved dogs and he could take Ellie if they would allow him to have her back. So they arranged for them to reunite at their vet’s office.
She knew who was coming when he walked near the door. She was so excited to see her dad again.


The happy pup went to live with her dad in South Carolina, and they have not left each other!

“She was meant to be with him,” Seller said.
