Ella was adopted about 5 years ago when she was 2/3 years old.  She is now in need of a new home due to emigration.  She is spayed, vaccinated & dewormed.  She is a lovely dog — though quite skittish with (some) men and boys, especially. She isn’t aggressive at all — she just gets nervous. She is mainly an outside dog, but she comes in to sleep in the evenings in a doggie bed inside the front door. She will not do stairs, and even hardwood floors make her nervous. While she seemed to be okay with other dogs at the shelter, she is very territorial. Similarly, on a lead, she is sometimes okay, and sometimes not — if she sees another dog she doesn’t like, she can be quite aggressive. If an adopter has another dog in the home, it would be recommended that meets are done.  Alternatively, a home as an only dog would be best.  Ella is a sweet, lovable girl who gets along with children & domestic staff.  Ella has battled with recurring ear infections which would need to be monitored by her new family.
