Ella was a “free” dog at local flea market. Ella was filthy and emaciated with open wounds on her neck and a scarred face. Worse… Ella was about to give birth. She was going to be thrown out and discarded like trash. The Humane Society of Columbiana County saved Ella. Just a few days after they saved Ella, she delivered 11 puppies. Only 5 survived. She needed a place to go. Sadly Ella was thought by some to be vicious or aggressive (not by HSCC!). She was just a scared mom desperately trying to protect her pups. She just needed time to trust humans. Ella is a good example for all that you never judge a dog by its cover (or breed or situation). Sometimes time and patience is all they need. Ella is proving those wrong that mislabeled her. She has been wronged by many but she is learning that she can trust humans and that now, she and her puppies are safe. The Learning Dog (Jenny) is now fostering them all. Always remember – Every dog has value. Even a “free” one. And Ella is worth a million bucks.
UPDATE: 11/24/13 – Ella does well with other dogs! She can be a bit pushy so a male dog would be best. She did wonderful with a large male dog and even a small breed male. She still needs a home! Ella will be spayed next week. We want to find her a home before Christmas so she can spend the holidays with her forever family! Spread the word and let’s find her a home!
11/1/13 All the puppies have found their forever homes! Now it is Ella’s turn to find hers! She is a loving dog that craves attention! She loves to snuggle. She is housetrained and loves everyone including kids. She rides well in the car and listens well. She will start classes soon! Ella would be best in a cat-free home. She will be introduced to dogs in a few days and we will update how she responds. Please spread the word and contact The Learning Dog for more information.
