No Dogs
Name: Ella
ID: 41469936
Breed: Terrier, Pit Bull / Mix
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 7 years 4 months
Size: Medium
Location: McKinney
About Me: I am a 7 year old pittie mix weighing in at 55 lbs (but on a diet!)

Personality: I'm sweet, snuggly, friendly and playful! I can be quite the goofball as well, and I adore people!

Likes: I love anyone who will give me belly rubs and food! That's really all I need in life!

Special Skills: I walk nicely on the leash and prefer a harness.

Kids: I'd do best with kids 10+ who I won't knock down easily. Please bring the whole family to meet me!

Dogs: Sure, bring potential doggy siblings to meet me to make sure we are a good fit.

My Dream Home: A house with a big yard for me to play in would be great! I could do a low traffic apartment too as long as my owner takes me on lots of walks. (Gotta drop those lbs somehow!)

Staff Testimonial: This girl is a sweet and spunky. She loves taking strolls around the shelter and running in the yard. We love to soak up the sun rays, working on our tan. Ella likes to chill and take things slow but yet still has some energy in there when she wants to move. I would love to see her go to a forever home, she deserves it.

The SPCA of Texas completes rigorous medical and behavioral testing on every animal in our care. The organization fully discloses all known medical and/or behavioral conditions, including any incidents of biting or violent behavior toward a human, to all adopters and fosters. Despite the rigorous testing our veterinary and behavioral professionals conduct throughout every animal’s stay in our facilities, other new and/or unknown medical and/or behavioral conditions may manifest in any animal at any time. By adopting or fostering an animal from the SPCA of Texas, adopters and fosters acknowledge at the time of adoption or fostering that they may receive an animal with an undetected medical and/or behavioral condition and/or that a new medical and/or behavioral condition may appear at any time in the future. Any pet adopted from the SPCA of Texas can be returned to us at any time for any reason at no cost.
