Name: Ella, as in legendary jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald — that's the only other Ella I know.

Birthdate: February 28, 2014. I'm a healthy and sage 5-year-old pooch. I'm on the petite side, which means I've got a good 10 more years.

Ethnicity: I'm an all-over white terrier mix, no tan lines. (You know what that means.) Here's my deal. I'm a very loving, endearing pup, 16 pounds of pure fun and affection. I know a bunch of commands, like sit and stay and off. I'm gentle with all ages of children and I love to play with other dogs.

I'm pretty much awesome. I like hanging out with people, but I'm not so fond of staying alone in the house for long periods of time. I need a support human, get it? I promise not to bring you on planes and annoy the other passengers, though.

Come and get me: I'm available for adoption at 11 am Friday, April 5 at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Freeway; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken sent me."
