Abused toy poodle "Ella" on the road to recovery

- An adorable Chocolate Toy Poodle is recovering after blatant abuse and neglect by her previous owner, according to the Humane Society of Iredell. 

HSI said they were so thankful they were able to take tiny Ella into their care. They believe Ella spent most of her life standing in a wire cage used for breeding. 

HSI explained on their Facebook page Ella came to them with many health issues - but luckily they're now being addressed. 

The tiny poodle currently has a dry eye which was left untreated and thus caused corneal scar tissue to develop on the surface of her eyes. Ella is not blind but has limited vision. HSI said she will need eye drops for the rest of her life. 

Although limited in sight, HSI said she has very sharp hearing and a perfect sense of smell. They said she is very motivated and is responding wonderful to clicker training. HSI said due to her having severe dental disease, she will have her remaining teeth pulled during her spay. 

This sweet little girl is available for a new home, one that will love her unconditionally for the rest of her life. If you're interested, of want to help other animals find their forever home, please visit Humane Society of Iredell's page by CLICKING HERE!
