Additional Comments: Ella is a new arrival and will be ready following medical review and clearance.
We received Ella as a pair (with Roxy). It’s still unknown if they are related; however, they behave remarkably together. Ella is a super sweet girl. She immediately came to us with tons of kisses. After two thorough baths, she looks and smells like a different dog. She is extremely friendly with our young son. And has ignored our cat.
Since the weather has been great outside, she and Roxy have been chilling each day on our deck in the shade. They initially slept in a large crate together, until (like always) we let them join us in our bedroom 🙂 I had to make Ella snuggle right next to me. She eventually LOVED getting pet and pampered. She is always following us around the house, to be involved with everything. There have been no accidents in the house and no chewing on our furniture or toys. She even caught on to the doggy-door real quick. They have not tried to dig under our fence or are bothered by our neighbors dog that barks.
I really think this is the first time she has ever been treated like family – which she truly deserves. I believe she would do great in a home with children or other animals. She doesn’t even seem concerned that we have two other dogs in the home. She just chills and does her own thing. But definitely wants to be a part of the family. She is more passive than Roxy, letting Roxy push her way to the food bowl first. But Ella is first to give kisses. Overall, she is an amazing pei!
