My wife and I were going to visit my parents in Swampscott at the time and we decided to stop at the shelter. We were just going to take a look at a dog we had seen online but were not ready to adopt quite yet. It was pretty late and an hour before the shelter closed for the night.

We Sat down with the dog we came to see but he was a not really our cup of tea and then we decided to take one last look around. That is when my wife saw Ella.

She had just been spayed but my wife instantly fell in love with her. The next day we came back bright and early and we sat down with her and that was when she bonded with us.

She is the best thing we have ever done. We are her people. We have had her for a year and a half now. She is the princess of the house and now the boss.
