About Ella

Shih Tzu
2 to 5 Years


Ella is a 4 year old Shih Tzu mix, she has limited knowledge of the outside world but has been slowly learning about it in her foster home, where she is thriving. She is worried to start and likes to take things slow but she is curious and as her confidence grows she will investigate, she will need a calm, patient home. She loves her toys and tasty treats!

Type of home needed

Ella will need a home who can commit to her ongoing training, she has started to show a keen interest in learning in her foster home, due to her lack of previous training Ella will require training from scratch, including house training and walking on a lead. Once settled into the home Ella could be left for a few hours. She is worried by handling and will need owners who can take things slowly with her to build her a relationship and her confidence.

More about me

Ella MUST live with calm older dog who can help show her the way. She could potentially live with sensible children aged 11 years and over who will respect her space and give her the time she needs. **PLEASE NOTE ELLA IS IN A FOSTER HOME, WE WILL BE TAKING INTEREST IN HER UNTIL MONDAY 11/11, TO ENQUIRE ABOUT REHOMING ELLA PLEASE EMAIL [email protected]**

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Ella, who is based at Newbury. 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.
