Fashion dog: Ella Bean went from being two days away from being euthanized to living as one of New York’s top Instagram fashion dogs

The Yorkshire terrier-mix's days consist of relaxing, shopping trips and modelling for her clothing line in New York.

During her down time, stylish Ella enjoys lounging in a king sized bed while feasting on ceviche, rosé and seafood.

“I started sewing my own clothes for her - including a leather motorcycle jacket. I brought her along with me to fashion week wearing it and it was the tipping point for her on her Instagram account."

The fashionista was rescued by dog-lover Hilary Sloan, and now travels the world wearing only the finest of canine couture.

Owner Hilary, said: “The contrast of Ella’s life between the puppy mill and her life now couldn’t be more different.

"She was a really anti-social traumatised dog when I first met her. She was really stand-offish and nervous around people and other dogs.

“Now she is this incredibly social, happy and outgoing dog who travels with us everywhere, comes to work with me and is really well loved by all the people who come in contact with her."

The trendy terrier has over 47,000 followers and uses her social media platform to raise money for The National Mill Dog Rescue.

She said: “Rescue is really important. Please adopt and don’t shop.

“I think what people really respond to is, yes, there is this humorous element of this dog living this fashion luxury lifestyle - but also she is giving back."

Ella-Bean's owners work in media and fashion and have seen the effects of social media in raising awareness for rescue.

Hilary, who works at fashion website, said: “I had this idea and thought it’d be really funny to create a social platform for her as if she was a fashion influencer.

"I’ve had dogs my whole life and she is the most opinionated dog I’ve ever had.

"She will not drink from water bowls out on the street. She prefers to drink from my cup. She’s got her preferences - I guess in a way she established herself as a little bit of a diva.”

Hilary said: “She is well fed and cared for and, yeah, her closet is a little bigger than most other dogs.”

But Ella’s lavish lifestyle was a far cry from her terrible past, where she was just days from death in a cramped and dirty puppy mill.

Hilary said: “When I met her she had a number of medical conditions. Her baby teeth had never fallen out so she had two complete rows of teeth, her gums were infected and her tail was broken.

“She was in horrible shape and something clicked for me.

“I just couldn’t leave her there and made the impulse decision to bring her home.”

Hilary's husband Noah, said: “Ella has become way more close with us, especially my wife.

“We’ve noticed she is becoming more confident and as soon as the camera comes out, she literally knows what to do. She sits and poses.

"We don’t take ourselves too seriously because at the end of the day we know Ella is a dog - but she’s a fabulous dog."

Hilary added: “Ella bean is obviously priceless - I think everyone would say about their dogs.

“You can’t put a price on the love and companionship that you get from a dog. I know that the saddest thing is that she is a dog and will leave us someday.”
