Elli had bilateral hip dysplasia which began to affect her performance as an explosives detection tracker for the Delaware County Sheriff. Deputy Michael Taylor, Elli’s partner, felt the investment in her training and her skills as a member of the police force warranted a total hip replacement. When not at work, Elli lives with the Taylor family and proudly wears a Coach collar.
