'Furbaby' inspires bakery off Person Street in Raleigh

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- When Yellow Dog Bread Company first opened off Person Street in Raleigh, not many people ventured into the area. Now the area has had a renaissance with help in part from the bakery.

Its name comes from the owner's first 'child,' a yellow dog named Ellie.

Although Ellie has since passed away, she continues to be a presence both for the owner, workers, and the customers.
