Hello there, my name is Ella! I'm a stunning Catahoula mix who was found as a stray and brought into my local shelter last July, where I sat for months waiting for someone to come and pick me up. No one ever came for me, so Second Chance took me in hopes that I might find a new home with them. A lovely lady with the same name as me once said, "It isn't where you came from, it's where you're going that counts" - and I tend to agree with her! I'm looking for a new home where I can live out the rest of my days, playing and going for walks all the time. I hope that my new family understand my breed - we Catahoulas aren't fans of other dogs, and sometimes we do best without small children in the home. But I do very well on a leash, and I'm completely house trained; plus I'm very loyal to my people and I love to play with toys. I know the right family is out there for me - if you think that might be you, will you please come and take me home today? Weight: 62 pounds
