Thanks for all the interest. Everybody is so nice whenever pictures are posted.
Ella is 1.5 years old. We got her almost exactly a year ago. And what a year it has been! We got her over the internet from a breeder in Missouri, who unfortunately we did not do enough research on and who did not do us any favors as far as her socialization and her trust in humans when we got her at 6 months old.
We love Ella and cannot imagine life without her, but I would never order a dog over the internet again. It is just not the right way to adopt a living creature.
