She is a true love bug! Her wiggle can be seen from across the room. She loves meeting new people and our new staff quickly fall in love with her. We first met Ella over the summer of 2015 at the Yonkers Animal Shelter when she was surrendered by her owner. Her owner was an elderly woman who could no longer care for her. Once in the shelter environment Ella’s health quickly went downhill. Due to kennel stress, she started to chew several parts of her legs and paws, and nothing could be done in the city shelter to help comfort or heal her. We knew we had to step in and help this sweet girl.
When Ella came to us we started to treat her raw spots we noticed she also had several small tumors on her belly. She was taken to the vet where they removed grade 1 Mammary Carcinomas on both sides of her belly. Ella is now is negative for Cancer and has healed perfectly! Ella is a survivor and we want her to live her life out as the happy dog she is and with a family that will love her like she deserves!
Ella loves a good game of fetch and a delicious treat. She walks well on the leash and is always up to go on a new adventure. She is housebroken and with just a nice comfy bed and some toys she is the perfect couch potato. She is looking to be the only pet in the household, but Ella walks by other dogs perfectly fine. Let’s make sure our survivor doesn’t lose hope because we know there is a family out there to love her!
