Ella came from the streets of Istanbul last August with the name of Andrea Martin. We waited with breathless anticipation and nervousness to meet our new street pup. It was love at first sight the moment we saw her. Ella was a typical pup with typical puppy ways but she was eager to learn and appeared so grateful to be given a second chance. In no time at all, she was running free in our backyard and following our commands easily. What a joy she has become and what a wonderful addition to our family. Ella also works hard at keeping our senior Golden young-at-heart. Seeing the two of them together is a beautiul and such a joy. Being a part of the Rescue Mission of Love has been a wonderfully positive experienece for us and we would not hesitate doing it again.
