Ella (formerly known as Cruella) came to the rescue in September with her dad and brother. There were a total of six adult dogs that between another rescue and us we split up the group. Ella was pregnant and although she had a very difficult labor (trip to emergency vet and emergency c-section) she had six beautiful babies. When Ella, Whiskey (her brother) and Olaf (her dad) arrived, Ella was extremely shy/timid and wouldn't let anyone touch her. We had to be very patient with Ella and giver her time to decompress and trust new people and surroundings. While she is timid/shy at first, it is best that you gain her trust at her speed and when she is ready she will come to you and seek affection. The family that wants to meet Ella, will need to understand that the first meet and greet, may not be what is expected, an outgoing doggie. Only families that understand her timid/shyness around people and willing to give her time to acclimate to her new surroundings should apply to meet her and perhaps move forward with adoption as soon as a home visit has been completed. Ella is 22lbs and she should be between 16-18lbs as she is a small breed dog, Dachshund/ Border Collie Mix and Chihuahua Rat Terrier mix. Her mom Luna is a Dachshund/Border Collie and her dad is a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix. The girl loves to chase lizards, she will dig holes and stare at trees and plants in the hopes to catch lizards so she can play with them... she is a hunter and understands both Spanish and English, loves to cuddle and go under covers to sleep. Ella is potty and crate trained and will tell you if she really has to go potty, she also suffers from allergies and will require to have a Cytopoint 30mg vaccination to help with her allergies. Ella is current on all of her vaccines, microchipped, and spayed. If you are interested in meeting Ella, please fill out an adoption application. Ella's adoption fee is $350 and comes with a small bag of food, one month of flea and heartworm prevention... She is heartworm NEGATIVE.
