About Ella

A Crossbreed
2 to 5 Years


Ella is a sensitive shy girl who takes time to feel comfortable in new situations, she thrives off routine and once she is familiar with a walk she is able to relax. She loves to have a sprint around in a secure field where she built up great recall with her foster carers. Once Ella is settled she is very affectionate and loves a cuddle and snuggle on the sofa. Ella is able to meet and greet calm dogs on her lead and with slow introductions she likes to walk with other dogs however her playstyle can often be too much for other dogs off-lead. Ella benefits from quiet walks in rural locations.

Type of home needed

Ella is searching for dedicated and patient adopters with experience of nervous dogs. She is looking for an active adult only home in a rural area, away from the hustle and bustle. Ella struggles if there is too much noise going on in her home so ideally there will need to be no neighbouring dogs or busy roads nearby. Potential adopters will need to visit Ella a few times and also meet with our Training Team here at the centre to go over how best to help Ella thrive in her forever home and how to carry on the training which her foster carers have started.

More about me

Ella is now ready to find her forever home after spending some time in a loving foster home on our Home from Home Scheme.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Ella, who is based at Ilfracombe. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £150 (£140 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees),for puppies its £150 adoption fee plus a £45 Dog School fee but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you can receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
