Update received March 2011: Ella has been a wonderful addition to our family! She is such a sweet dog! She has taken a strong liking to me. She follows me EVERYWHERE! But she is starting to enjoy the rest of the family too. The kids love playing ball with her and teaching her new tricks. She has learned so much since she has been here. We are going to take her to an obedience class starting the end of the month. She still has the bad habit of mouthing, but it has gotten better. And she LOVES the dog park! It is so fun to see her playing with other dogs. She is by far the fastest at the park! It still is a little rocky with her and the cat. Ella always wants to play, but can be a little rough. The cat is hissing and batting at her. But the cat keeps coming out so I'm not sure if he likes it or not! But at night, when they both are tired, we have found them actually laying by one another! Thank you so much for bringing her into our lives. We are having so much fun with her. We think your organization is wonderful!
