Meet Ella

K9 animal news

ELLA is 11 years old, and has been at the refuge for nearly two years. Her previous family had to return home to the UK, and couldn’t take her with them.

She says: “I don’t know why. I am still very sad about it, but I make the best of my life here at K9. I may be older, but I am very spritely and active. I think I am a favourite with my people here at the refuge, and I know my walkers love to take me out with them.

“However, none of the visitors seems to want to take me home. Perhaps it is because they prefer younger dogs. I guess I understand that, but I am still young at heart!

“I can also be a little overwhelmed when there are lots of people around, but my people at K9 say there are lots of quiet and peaceful homes out there with no children, for a good dog like me.

“My people look after me well here, but I really want to spend my older years in a cosy home with my own family. Do you please have a place in your home and heart for me? In return I promise I’ll be your best friend, forever.”
