Beautiful Ellen was one of the dogs rescued from Michael Vick’s dogfighting operation. She thrived under the love and care she received at Best Friends, and became a charming ambassador for pit-bull-type dogs everywhere. They had to say goodbye to Ellen recently after an extended illness, and while she will be missed terribly, all who met the friendly dog were blessed to have known her.

During her final two days, Best Friends said Ellen had a steady stream of visitors, all of them stopping over to say goodbye to this remarkable dog who was so easy to love. Farewell, Ellen Belly.
