A very kind woman, working at an animal shelter in Rhodes, got in touch many months ago, asking if we could help home this beautiful Galgo girl.
Ella had been abandoned and had been straying for some time. She was starved, dehydrated and very scared. It took a number of days to get her to safety. But her journey to health and a better life had begun. The lady who found Ella, visited her most days, and helped Ella gain confidence and soon Ella had made a friend. She was very pleased to see her friend and their friendship and trust grew. Soon it was time for Ella to make the daunting journey to the UK.
Ella is an incredibly striking and elegant hound, with a beautiful spotty belly! She is about 2 years old. She is adapting to home life very well and is in foster with four other sighthounds and gets on well with all of them. She is a playful girl and loves to zoom about the garden.
Ella's confidence has really grown and she is now happy to come up for a fuss and curl up next to you on the sofa.
She is not as scared of a lead now, is able to wear a harness and her foster mum is working on building her confidence up on the lead as the outside world is a bit strange to her.
Ella needs a gentle home, with another sighthound or two, with people around quite a bit until she settles and then she is fine to be left up to 4 hours, as long as she has other dogs with her. People who will give her time to trust them and bond. She is now looking for her forever home, where she can continue to blossom.
No children. And no cats.
In foster in Essex.
