Arrival Story:
This pound puppy was sitting in the corner of the city shelter as the other dogs did their best to get my attention with a lot of yelping, licking and tail wagging. But not Ella. She hung out in the back corner and she just looked at me with eyes that said "I'm sorry, but there's been some sort of clerical error, I'm not supposed to be here". So I took her home.

I had seen Ella’s picture on a shelter website, gone to visit her and was awaiting the day she was available for adoption. When I arrived at the shelter the morning of her availability, there was an older man and his young granddaughter waiting for her as well. I looked at the little girl, who was very excited about getting "her" dog (and had already named her Pocahontas Princess)... and I knew if push came to shove I wouldn't be able to deprive her (even though I had kept Ella's "mug" shot from the shelter site on my computer for a week and had already fallen in love). Just as the man behind the desk was telling us that we could "bid" for her (which was bad, because I KNEW I could outbid the little girl!) , a shelter worker came around the corner and asked what was happening. She sized up the situation, and was able to find a lovely chihuahua that made the little girl quite happy… once a warm puppy was in the five year olds arms, she was in heaven. And I was able to take home what turned out to be the best, goofiest, most loving dog in the world.
