I'm Ella!  My Dad named me Ella because both my name and the Shetland Sheepdog breed originated in the Shetland Islands. I will be three years old on August 6, 2012.

My favorite treats include yogurt, fresh fruit and  vegetables. I have learned both gentleness and kindness from my human Mom and Dad. In turn, Mom and Dad have learned how dogs can give unconditional love and comfort when someone is sick or well.

My favorite time of the day is playing ball with my Dad while he does his exercises. I like to travel in the car and have gone on trips from Maine to Key West. I think tent camping is a lot of fun too!

I am a great therapy dog because I am gentle and kind and can sense peoples' feelings.

My Favorite Places to Visit:  Coming Soon!   My volunteer handler is named Wendy.
