Ella came to us as an owner give up as she was found in Charleston, WV and the people decided having 6 dogs was to much. She is a handful and will need training but is a quick learner. She loves to please and likes long walks. She would not be a good companion for children under the age of 8 as she is strong and could knock them over without meaning to hurt them. While she is currently around cats her interest in cats makes us believe she might not be a good fit iwth a cat in a home. She would excel at obedience and beyong if you are looking for a dog to train. Our best guess is she is between 9 and 12 months of age so young and happy. She will be going to the K9 Aquatic swim center so we shall know if she likes to swim. She seems to be mostly lab but there is a little something else going on like a shepherd. Her bags are packed and she is ready to move to her forever home after being found as a stray, riding in a plane to come to Md. and then moving on to her foreverhome.
