Ella is very gentle, despite her large size. She likes to take her time meandering around the yard, stopping and sniffing and watching cars drive by. Ella sniffs at toys in the yard, but isn't always interested in playing with them. Ella has lots of fluff and will need regular brushing, and she politely stands still while her tufts of excess fur are brushed out. Ella does very nicely on the leash. She walks just a few steps ahead and doesn't pull at all. Where Ella really shines is in play group. She is a play group rockstar and can adapt to all play styles, from the gentle and dainty dogs to the rough and rowdy dogs. Ella has a long list of doggy friends. This means she could go to a home with or without another dog.
