Age: 10 years old
Well it doesn’t get much sadder than this!
Ella was unceremoniously dumped in the parking lot of our city shelter. A man drove up, opened his car door and tossed her out. Who does that!!! Thankfully shelter staff were able to secure her and we happily opened up a foster spot.
Ella is an older girl. Our best guess is she’s around 10 years old. She’s completely toothless but eats soft food just fine. She’s very sweet but you can tell someone wasn’t kind to her. She’s not a fan of getting picked up and will sometimes scream when picked up. She’s nervous around new people and just a bit shy but she’s super motivated by attention and affection and will search it out. She’s currently working on her house training skills and is wonderful with other dogs. We feel Ella would do best in a quiet home with older respectful children. We are currently waiting on her spay appointment and we hope to have her adoption ready in the next 2-4 weeks.
Here’s what you need to know about adopting a cat or dog from Marley's Mutts:
Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook
Each pet will have its own profile here on the website
All pets will be spayed or neutered
All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date
Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)
It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.
We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.
It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.
If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.
Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.
If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
