Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Ethel

15 Oct

Have we got a special one for you today! Meet Ethel!


So why is Ethel so special? Well, first and foremost, she’s Bully Project‘s newest adoptable, and secondly, she’s Josh’s new foster! And this girl is an absolute rockstar! Crate trained, house broken, obedient, dog friendly, people friendly, walks beautifully on leash, doesn’t bark or whine, comfortable when left home alone. I mean, this dog is as rock solid as a, well, a rock. She’s so special, that she was even featured on a jumbotron in Times Square!

American Eagle Outfitters

That’s real, folks – not photoshopped! We took her shopping for new jeans, and the staff in the store loved her so much, that they offered to put her picture up on their billboard! We are so proud!


Ethel was found as a stray at the end of July and surrendered to a public shelter in New Jersey. She lived in the shelter for just over two months, and despite all that time in such a stressful environment, she’s so incredibly calm and well behaved. While there, she became great friends with one of the regular volunteers who even began working on agility with her:

And she just loves meeting new people on the street – so much so that she just rolls over onto her back for belly rubs.

She also loves meeting dogs of all shapes and sizes:

Ethel is already spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped. She’s 100% ready for her new home. Any home. She’d be great with kids, adults, dogs, and most likely cats as well. She’d be perfect for the new dog owner, and great with an experienced one. So we’re calling all adopters: please email us at to apply to adopt Ethel!

    Congrats on your new foster! She sounds like she will make someone extremely happy in her forever home, not to mention that she will be a rockstar foster! How cool that you got her picture up on jumbotron!

    And PS? I’m pretty sure she’s a chocolate lab in disguise. A total sweetheart and a friend from the instant you meet her, as I did last night. Looking forward to having her as my roommate while Josh is away for a few days!

  3. She is not only gorgeous, but has a very sweet and dignified air about her. LOVE that she appeared on a Times Square marquis – way to make the best impression possible on passersby!

  4. Have to say, that dog is absolutely stunning! Someone is going to be extremely blessed to be her guardian!
