Always read entire post please.
Meet Ellen! Ellen is a ~6 year old  pit mix lady who weighs 76lbs. Ellen is a lover–she is gentle in requesting her affection, but is happiest when you can be touching her. She is quiet and tidy and has wonderful manners in her kennel. Although she is big and strong, she is pretty respectful on a leash. She is protective of her home and family. Ellen has lived with other dogs, large and small, yet can be a little selective in meeting new ones. She would be a great companion for someone needing a buddy!
