About Ella

Ella is the sweetest little girl! She has fabulous house manners and loves affection.

She is happiest when she is with her people. She’s content to curl up and sleep if you’re just hanging out or working from home (she sleeps under the desk at her foster’s feet all day), but she’s always ready to go for a walk or run around in the yard! She does the cutest little hop when she’s playing fetch.

She is a bit shy so new situations and new people make her a bit nervous. She warms up quickly to people and then is ready to give kisses and receive pets!

Ella lived with a 1.5 year old and was amazing with her. She was very sweet towards her. However, Ella does still jump and can get a bit hyper sometimes so she’d be better with older kids.

Ella shows separation anxiety. She will bark if you leave her alone, but she does settle. This is a work in progress and today she even chose to nap in another room by herself! She would probably not be a good apartment dog due to her barking. 

She is good with other dogs and would do well in a home with other dogs to play with. Cats are unknown but she does have a high prey drive with cats and squirrels outdoors.

Ella is just a joy to have around and would be a great addition to most families! Her energy level is low most of the time but she’s happy to turn it up to high when it’s play time!

Adoption Fee | $500

Adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescue, such as vetting, boarding, and transportation.

Prior to adoption, dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4Dx tested, and they receive any necessary treatment. After adoption, they are eligible for one month of free pet insurance.
For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page.

Why We Love Fostering

  • Fostering opens you up to helping so many incredible animals. The dogs we have fostered all had different personalities, needs and quirks. We remember them all fondly. We love fostering because it is more flexible than most people would imagine. We can decide when to take a dog (so family vacations are easy to plan), what size (under 70lbs for us) and PAN is amazing at matching us with dogs that fit our needs.
    - Cheryl & Debbie

Why We Love Fostering

  • Fostering gives me the opportunity to share a journey with an animal who has no one else. Without people like me these dogs may not get a second chance at feeling safe and finding a stable, loving forever home. I remember each of them vividly and we have a special bond.
