Cinder Ella

Baby - Female
Adoptable Small Mix

4-5 months old (as of 10/12/17)

Cinder Ella is the classic tiny dog with a big attitude. She loves to strut around the neighborhood on a leash and let the world know she’s there – especially people on bicycles.

She is a good alarm and will announce someone is at the door, only to run and hide when you open it up. She does enjoy meeting new people, but needs a couple of minutes to get comfortable around them. Treats help a lot.

Some of her talkative nature will subside with socializing, but she will always have a lot to say.

Cinder plays very well with other dogs and makes a lot of funny sounds while she’s in action. She is all dog and does great on all fours, but her most favorite things involve being close to humans. Cinder will do a little dance to get picked up and snuggle in your arms. She also likes to burrow into the sofa for a nap next to a person, but be careful to not squish her!

She very intelligent and already has her foster parents trained. Oops, I mean that she responds eagerly to training. Potty training is a work in progress – she is doing very well with frequent visits outside & positive re-enforcement.

Cinder is currently sleeping in a crate with a friend, and she will probably do best in a home with another dog and a human that works from home some or all of the time. Cinder is only 4.5 lbs at 16 weeks and isn’t aware of her size limitations, so her animal companions should also be small; humans should be ready to give her a little extra TLC. She will reward you with lots of kisses for your efforts!

Please note that we will not adopt puppies under 5 months of age to apartments or homes without a safely fenced private yard due to their incomplete immunization. Additionally, puppies under 5 months (and some puppies in general) will not be adopted to homes with young children due to their fragile size and sharp puppy teeth.

Please be aware that we rarely have information about cat compatibility, as most of our foster homes don’t have cats. Adoption decisions are based on the best overall match and not done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
