Ella is a 2 year old Retriever mix. She is in excellent health; she just went to the vet and is up to date on all her shots. She needs a big fenced yard so she has room to run around and burn off some energy. Ella will run off if she is allowed outside off her leash. She is beautiful and friendly, but also can be stubborn. She gets along well with other dogs and is happiest at doggy care with other dogs to play with. She does not get along with cats. She allows nail trims and tooth brushing with no trouble, but does not enjoy baths. Ella is housetrained and crate trained. She knows basic commands. She must be crated or confined if left home alone because she will sometimes chew things she shouldn’t. Ella rides well in the car. A home with other playful, friendly dogs is preferred. She needs someone who has time, patience, and energy to give her the exercise she needs, as well as ongoing obedience training. Fenced yard is strongly preferred.

If  you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an  Adoption Application.  *After you have completed your application, you will get a confirmation that we have received your application. It takes a lot of time to process the applications, so we ask for your patience while we do so. If you see that the dog you were interested in has been adopted it means there were many applications for that dog and we did not get as far as processing your application before a home was found. We welcome you to apply again if you see another dog that interests you.   If you have a question, please email your question to adoptions@caninerescue.org. It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day.

We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs. Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.

*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application. Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.

Ella is sponsored by: Sarah Vosz, Kayme Crowell, Kevin and Barbara Kantz, Diane Weakley, Diane Mogavero, Jane and Joe McMaster, Linda Bradigan in memory of Shaleigh and Rich and Dan Courtine in memory of Plutewhistle . Thank you everyone!
