Meet Ella: Adopted!

Date of birth: 1/2014

9/18/2014: Ella is a super cute Pit Bull mix with pretty brindle coloring. She’s 8 months old and very friendly. She likes to play with other dogs and she loves chew toys. Ella was turned over to a vet clinic because her person could not afford to care for her. We suspect that she had been mistreated. She had a leg injury and demodex, a skin condition. Her leg was not broken, and it’s healed up very well. We’ve treated her skin condition and it’s also cleared up.

Ella is so sweet, but she play bites and she needs some training. She wouldn’t be a good match for a family with young kids. We also do not want to place her in a home with cats or small dogs. She enjoys playing with medium and large dogs.

Ella is medium energy. She walks nicely on a leash. She will probably weigh about 50 lbs when fully grown. Ella needs some training, but she’s a real sweetheart and deserves a home with someone who will take good care of her.


Please visit our web site at HSGKC.ORG for more information about our adoption process, our adoption fees and all that's included, and for a pet adoption application.

> Our goal is to send you home with a healthy pet and any information and support you may need to help your new pet adjust to his or her new home. All of our dogs & puppies have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, treated for fleas & ticks, tested for heartworms (7 mo. and over), and are on monthly heartworm preventative. Puppies who are too young to receive all the necessary puppy boosters and/or first rabies shot may be brought back to us for those vaccines at no extra charge. You will also receive a leash, collar, coupons for pet supplies and services, toys, and educational materials. And we'll give your dog a bath before he or she goes home!

> Please note that we prefer and may require a fenced yard for many of our dogs. Exceptions are made on an individual basis depending on the dog's needs, the person's dog experience, the dog's and person's activity levels, home environment and other factors.

> An application is required to adopt a pet and applicants must meet our adoption requirements. If you decide you'd like to adopt one of our dogs, we reserve the pet for you but we generally don't send the dog home with you that same day.

Thank you for searching for a shelter pet!
