Meet Ella

Ella is 70% snuggle-squish and 30% agile kangaroo, all topped off with the sweetest, most soulful eyes you've ever seen.
There's so much yearning in those eyes...
Ella just wants someone to love her (a blissful, relaxing 70% of the time) and play with her (a cardio-blasting, muscle-pumping 30% of the time).
This healthy 5-year-old Boxer Mix was owner-surrendered to AAS because the kids had grown up, and the parents no longer had time for a family dog.
A loyal, loving soul, Ella spent her first few weeks at the shelter staring out at the road, crying and searching for her people.
But, Ella's resilient (Aren't you tired of that? Don't you wish dogs didn't have to be so resilient all the time??!!?) --
Once Ella realized her people weren't coming back, she decided to make the best of her situation and show us what a wonderful girl she is!
Ella walks beautifully on leash, gives enthusiastic kisses, and has never met a toy she doesn't like!
She's housetrained, never destructive, and knows basic cues like "sit,", "shake," and "down."
Ella's all about short bursts of very active play, where she tugs and leaps and fetches, followed by a loooong nap and some head scratches if you're amenable.
Our sweet Ella has settled into a routine at the shelter, but we still catch her staring at the road... hoping...
Maybe one day she'll see YOU coming to take her home?
Ella would love to snuggle with you (70%) and play with you (30%) any day between 9am and noon, including weekends and holidays, no appointment necessary.
Interested? Come for a visit any day of the week - 365 days a year between 9am - 12pm. Hope to see you soon!
