Ella: NYCSR’s Biggest Success to Date

Ella has a home. And not just any home, but the perfect forever home. It must have been fate… they submitted an adoption application almost six WEEKS before Ella became available. It was still in our queue when we decided to make Ella available and something about their app just JUMPED out the next time […]

Go Ella!

We’re all so excited… eight months after arriving in foster care with serious resource guarding issues, Ella is available for adoption. There was a time when we almost gave up on her! I guess we’ve learned our lesson about not giving up, because she has turned out to be a great, GREAT girl! The latest […]

10/28/07 Ella Update

From Ella’s New Foster Mom, Molly: Ella is a love bug. I can say that I know no other shiba who loves tummy rubs as much as she does. Ella loves talk. She grunts and grumbles while playing with toys and chasing her buddy Haiku. Her training is going extremely well. Ella is a very […]

October update on Ella

Wow. The latest status report on Ella is SO encouraging. Foster mom Molly says Ella is happy, fun-loving, outgoing and loves to learn. She is improving all the time on dropping on command.

Ella is extremely affectionate and loving. All she seems to want is belly rubs, scratches behind the ears and to give kisses. She really responds to both treats and affection as a method of training.

Ella is enjoying her new foster home very much! She really is so much happier as an only dog and no kids. Ella gets along with other dogs on walks and in the dog run just fine- she just needs to be an only dog in the home. Ella LOVES belly rubs, scratches and her […]

June 26 Update on Ella

Well…. Ella has been in a different foster home for the past month and we’ve decided she should definitely be an only dog. She and the resident dog in her new home can’t work it out either (and he gets along with everyone). So, now she’s moving to a dogless foster home. We’ve had a […]

05/29 Update on Ella

Well, it turns out Ella isn’t as dog friendly as she first appeared to be. In her temp foster the day after we took her in, she got along great with the pack of dogs there. When we first moved her into foster care – with one male resident Shiba – she was a sweetie. […]

Introducing Ella

Ella is less than two years old. Her former owners bought her in a pet store as a Christmas gift for their children in 2005. I guess the cute doggie in the window didn’t meet their expectations though because she mostly lived in the basement and the yard with no contact with other dogs or […]
