Introducing Elsa, who joined us in 2016 as one of the many dogs saved from the Public Shelter when it closed.
Elsa has kept a quiet profile in our shelter, she is fairly laid back and quiet, preferring to keep to herself mostly to avoid any conflict. She was moved into one of the main confident groups of dogs last year and has become a lot more outgoing around them and with us.
We know that Elsa would be keen to have a quiet laid back companion in her new home, she seems more confident around other dogs and feel she would struggle as an only dog potentially. She has not met cats, so are looking for a cat free home.
Because of her quiet shy nature we are not looking to place Elsa in a home with kids. Older teenage visiting children would be fine as long as she has her quiet space to retreat to in the home.
Elsa is no different from our other dogs in that she loves food and is very food motivated. She will be required to attend formal training once better settled in to her forever home. She has not had any experience of wearing a harness and lead, so her adopters should be able to demonstrate the patience required for this task.
Elsa would benefit from an experienced dog owner, who perhaps has also had the experience of working with a street dog. Whilst your journey with Elsa may not be the easiest, it will most definitely be a super rewarding one as you transition through all the things required to make her a more confident dog.
As Elsa is living outdoors currently her adopters should be mindful that a degree of toilet training will be required. Time and patience are a must to ensure she learns in a force free way.
If you can offer the lovely quiet Elsa the forever home she is searching for then please complete the adoption application and someone will contact you
If you would like to be a doggy sponsor then please see How You Can Help for further details. All our dogs love toys and treats and would welcome these from our Amazon Wishlist.
