August 2016: Ella remains a sweetheart who loves to play with the larger dogs. She is very vocal and affectionate with us humans!
January 10, 2016 Update: Ella is a very intelligent, fun and funky girl. She's a talker, she's mouthy and loves to play hard. She also loves to steal food off of the counters, so watch out. She knows her commands, she knows her name and is house trained. She would be best in a home with another dog or adopted with one of ours who is her favorite (Brandi, a black lab). She is not a barker but will let you know when someone is driving up or at the door by barking. She is the size of a border collie. She does not shed. The first pic is the latest of her taken yesterday. She's a very pretty and loving girl.
ELLA is a feisty girl! She has had her first DHLPP and is too young to be spayed. Her adopter is responsible for having her spayed at 6 months of age. She is very healthy and very smart. She loves to play with the large dogs and harass the small dogs. She has medium energy and is being house trained.
ELLA's coat is changing from black to sable and she has a white chest and white feet. We don't know exactly what she is, but are assuming black lab, maybe shepherd, anatollian shepherd, chow, etc. Whatever the combination, she looks like she's going to be a big girl.
We encourage a sleepover prior to adoption. Our adoption guidelines and application are available at http://www.puppydogranch.org
