For that person who adopts Ella and understands her needs they will get all the love that she has withheld during her times of stress.

Ella is looking for a very special home with someone who, above all, will put the time and effort into her that she deserves. She hasn’t had the easiest start to life, and has some behavioural issues that have likely stemmed from those beginnings that will require continued care as she isn’t sure yet who she can trust or what it means to really relax into her surroundings. Ella would like nothing more than to be shown how to love in return.

She needs an adult family (no children) in a single-dog home as she is quite sensitive and can be fearful around other animals. Ella could potentially live with a calm dog of similar age and temperament if she was given her own space, especially if they were smaller in size like she is. Ella would also benefit from having someone around for most of the time as she can get distressed when left alone.

Ella will require her new family to continue with training and socialisation in order to build confidence and a sense of stability. They will also need to be experienced with dogs. She has some behaviours that require extra attention, and consistency will be invaluable in addressing these. Ella also has some limited experience with crate training which will be of great benefit going forward to her feeling safe.

Please note: we do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25.

It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. Please go to your local pound, or contact your local group. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia Pounds in the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.
