Meet Ella

Ella here, did I hear you’re looking for a new best friend? Let me tell you a little bit more about myself and maybe we’ll be a good match?

Do you like warm hugs? I'm an adorable 50 pound pitbull mix, and I love to follow and stay close to my people. I’m super cuddly and affectionate – I’ll even climb into your lap to give you hugs. I am a great companion, and I would be happy to join you on walks or car rides where I’m super well behaved!

I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but I am a really smart girl. I know a bunch of commands, and I’m easily trainable because I love treats…any and all, I’m not picky. I’m still working on my potty training, but with treats as motivation, I just know I’ll get there soon.

Now that you know all about my good traits, it’s only fair that I share my challenges as well. Here’s the thing. I do not like to be alone. And by “do not like,” I mean I can Houdini myself out of my crate and find something to chew on when I’m left by myself. I have not particularly warmed to my four-legged foster brother, so mom keeps us separated, but I absolutely love my little two-legged siblings. I might be better as the only dog in the home, but I’d love to have some little humans to love on.

I know my past has left me with some fears, but with your love and patience, I know I can overcome them. If you are ready to give me a chance and want to meet me, please fill out an application. See you soon!
