Miss Ella is likely a Chihuahua-Jack Russell mix, white with reddish-brown markings and a pink nose. One adorable ear flops down, the other straight up!
Miss Ella is a very smart and observant dog. She just wants to be held and comforted and is a true cuddler. Super-sweet, Miss Ella has been great with every person and with every animal. She just needs a bit of time to get over her initial fear of meeting new people (she shakes) and being in new situations. She even immediately won over the cat in her foster home! Miss Ella thrives on structure and on understanding what the rules of the house are. Living with another dog has been helpful, as she looks to him to model behavior for her. She has a playful personality that comes out once she is comfortable with someone and is downright adorable! She just came into the program, and is initially afraid of meeting new people and being in new situations, but is making progress.
Miss Ella is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative.
Miss Ella came to our program from her amazing rescuer, who had found her badly injured in a rural county. The rescuer worked with a local vet to nurse her back to health over the following 8 weeks before contacting our program for placement. No other information is known about her prior life.
