HEALTH: ELLORA is spayed, microchipped, flea treated, dewormed, and is current on vaccines. She may possibly be BLIND. Once her eye heals, we will be better able to determine if she will have some sight or none. In addition, she may have a collapsed trachea so will need to wear a harness and never a collar. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as other incidental costs of care. In addition, all pets adopted from Motley Zoo come with a free 30 day trial of free pet insurance provided by 24PetWatch.

HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find ELLORA a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do! Ellora was found by a good Samaritan and brought to the shelter. They believed she may have been hit by a car.

Confident, playful and curious once oriented/ comfortable. ELLORA is an expressive and alert dog but rarely barks, so unlike a Pom. Clever, quick independent learner, she will learn how to get around so well, you won't even know she's blind. Her walk is so elegant, strangers come up to see her trotting and prancing. She loves to run and long walks can never be enough. She will go out every hour, if you take her, for an hour, or she will just walk herself around the house. She is very good on leash, trusts a loose leash with strong guidance. We believe she has a collapsed trachea. She will cough and sneeze with the following triggers: Exercise, eating/drinking too quickly, excitement, after a lot of sniffing.
She only eats and drinks from her designated spot and is good about not picking up things from the ground. She loves a chew and is ever so excited about her kibble.
Her favorite way to show affection is nibbling on toes and taking you running with her, seriously, she will look back like "what's the hold up?"
She loves belly rubs and sleeping belly up.

All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and Martingale collar (or a harness, if necessary), depending on each dog's particular needs. We also send home additional flea treatment and deworming medication for your future use.

Motley Zoo Animal Rescue is a volunteer run, foster based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization based in Redmond, WA. Motley Zoo does not have a traditional shelter location, but instead, utilizes private foster homes which care for the animals individually, in a home environment, until a "furever" home is found.

Motley Zoo also runs "Rock Star Treatment" Dog Daycare & Training Studio in Redmond, WA which is a day-use facility and does not hold kennels of adoptable animals. The dogs there are owned animals who come to the facility while their families are at work and school so they can play and socialize in a safe environment. We dub this service our "Year-round" fundraising program which helps us support our rescue animals and the $15,000/ month vet bills we incur. This Studio location does have an Adoptable Cat Lounge, where cats may live until adoption, which is the exception to any aforementioned rules.

Please email and request an adoption application so we can get you started on the journey to finding a new, furry friend! Once you have been approved to adopt, then we can set up a meeting with the animal you have been matched with.
