WE SEE A LOT OF SPOILING IN LITTLE ELLA'S FUTURE! CONGRATULATIONS TO MOM AND ELLA!
Hi … my name is Ella! Read my bio to find out everything you need to know about me.
If you think I might be the perfect pup for you, go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org/forms and complete the adoption application online.
Sweet little Ella has had a rough life. By all accounts, prior to coming to AAMR, she had lived in multiple homes where she was forced to live outside and she has been abused by male humans. Her female humans loved her and tried to protect her. Despite all her fears, she is a super sweet and loving little girl when she is in the right environment for her. When she is stressed and fearful, she is 100% in flight mode and will bolt thru a door and run like the wind.
So … what is the perfect world for Ella. One where she lives with only women. One where she has a fenced yard. She would be fine with another small dog (not a rowdy youngster), but she gets stressed and nippy with larger dogs. We do not know how she would be with children, but would guess that she might be ok with an older, respectful girl, but probably not with boys. This sweet girl has apparently been through so much in her life, and we will be extra cautious about where we place her and will look for the situation that will be best and least stressful for her.

We are an all-volunteer group, so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions and home visits. You can expedite the process by providing accurate email addresses for all your references. Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have multiple applications in process. We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible.
When your application is approved, we will schedule a home visit/meet-and-greet to see if Ella picks you too.
If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee, and an adoption contract to be signed. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.
