Meet Ella!

Our family adopted our puppy Ella from the Texas Boston Terrier Rescue one Sunday afternoon. We loved stopping at local pet shops when they had adoption events, hoping to find a puppy to love as our own. But it just hadn’t been the right time for us to adopt until about a year ago.

My husband fell in love with Ella while the kids were playing with pretty much all the dogs that Sunday. I knew that look in my hubby’s eyes … he was not leaving without this dog! Now, the next part was making sure we set her up with the best of everything we could afford.

Ella’s (not so fancy) Doggie Bed

The adoption team sent us home with a crate, which we quickly “furnished” with a fancy, cozy doggie bed. That may not have been the best idea. We learned pretty fast that Ella thought the bed was a chew toy, so we switched to blankets for padding! She liked to chew those, too, but they worked! She still loves cozying up like a puertorrican “alcapurria” on the couch with her favorite fuzzy brown blanket!

One night, we found Ella cozying up on the couch, all wrapped up like an “alcapurria” … and the nickname stuck!

Ella’s Favorite Food!

When we adopted Ella, she was 9 months old and a growing, hungry puppy! But we couldn’t give her just “any” dog food. My husband used to work at a pet shop and he was VERY picky about Ella’s food and snacks. He’s always researching and trying to find the best dog food for Ella and we’ve found that “grain-free” seems to be best for her.

When we got this opportunity to check out Purina® Beneful® Grain Free at Target, we couldn’t wait … and apparently neither could Ella! As soon as we got the bag home, she was ready to open it herself if we didn’t hurry up!

When the Dog Food loves your Dog Back!

Ella is such a happy, energetic puppy! She needs good dog food that fuels her for those nightly walks and tons of running and playing with our two athletic kids! One of her favorites games is “bacon” … our version of fetch, but with a bacon-scented bone that my son and daughter love to throw and Ella loves to run and fetch!
