Yes, I remember that Germans do not think highly of Americans when it comes to dogs.
The last time we were stationed in Germany, a German couple adopted a bordercollie from the German animal shelter (Tierheim). The border collie had been left behind in housing by a military family.
Your girl looks like a German bred Golden, that is why I asked

I am glad that you are giving Ellie a good home and that she is making strides and getting better Thank you for adopting Ellie

Welcome- We have an Ellie too. Her actual name is Eleanor, but my family insists that Eleanor is a too dignified name for our silly girl so it is often shortened to Ellie or sometimes Miss Ellie.

Hello from Germany!

She actually tended to a very rambunctious 2 year old today! I was so proud of how she behaved and tolerated him, especially when she started out as a bundle of nerves! My boys are 16 and 10!

So nice to meet you all, and wow, so many either from or have lived in Germany!!! =) Vielen Dank!

Hello from Germany!

Oh, and to Miss Ellie..... =). She's our Eller beans. Ha ha!

Her original name was Shelly, which I wasn't fond of!
