Ella will steal your heart when you meet her. She has lots of energy but will settle down nicely for a belly rub. Smart and treat motivated, she is eager to learn and to play games. She likes to do nose work, a fun search and scenting game, and she will go find treats if you hide them. She also enjoys going for walks and exploring, and she is good for car rides. Born in 2014, Ella came to Best Friends from a shelter in Texas. She can be a bit picky with her doggie friends. At the Sanctuary, she has been working on name recognition and basic training cues. Ella is currently being treated for heartworm disease. She will need to complete her treatment at Best Friends, unless an adopter is willing to take this on at home. Once her treatment is complete, she'll enjoy being active in a home of her own.
