Ella is a 4 year old (DOB 7/5/2016) pitbull that was surrendered to our shelter after her family was unable to keep her when they were forced to move. While Ella was loved by her former family, she was never properly socialized and is fearful of new people and situations. While Ella reacts aggressively (barking and lunging) at new people, she does eventually warm-up with slow walks around the property and treats. Ella needs an experienced bully owner who can continue working with her in the home and help her build confidence. We do feel that Ella would benefit from another confident dog who can help her transition into the home. She is making friends fast here at the shelter, so she is great with other dogs and is good with kids too! She is spayed, up-to-date on her shots and microchipped. Ella is ready to find her special family and if you think that may be you, please email Vicki@nokillarc.org or call (570) 784-3669.*Please allow at least 24 hours for all responses.
