Reston, VA

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Ella. She is a 2-year-old Maltese and Yorkie mix. Here is what owner Rachel has to say about her:

Ella was born on March 27, 2012 in the farm country of Ohio. Ella met her parents when she was only two weeks old and has been the apple of their eyes ever since! She may look like a pure Maltese, but just listen for her Yorkie bark.

Her favorite color is pink, which is represented in various collars, leashes and of course clothing. She loves to play in the basement, otherwise known as “Ella’s Playground,” chase squirrels and collect sticks on walks. Ella is known for her stick obsession. But don’t let her size fool you, she can pick up a stick at least three times her size! And when it comes to the squirrels, those little legs move pretty fast, just ask the squirrels. We’ve had a couple close calls.

But her favorite activity of all is cuddling up to her mom and dad. She is the sweetest dog we know. One look at that face and she knows she has you wrapped around her little paw.
