All About Me

Elsa is a calm, loving companion with a gentle nature who exudes an air of serenity most of the time. She adores affection and seeks it out with soft nudges and soulful looks. Although she still has an occasional bout of anxiety, now, with the love and care from her foster parents, these instances have been significantly reduced.

Curious and playful, Elsa is a delight to be around. And her elegance will capture your heart!

Elsa is great with young children, making her an ideal family dog. She has formed a touching bond with her foster doggie brother, which brings her comfort and companionship. The two of them share a room at night in peace and tranquility.

Food-motivated, this girl is easy to train and responds well to basic commands (especially when there's a treat involved!).

She is crate-trained and is making good progress with house-training.

Elsa loves her daily walks and is well behaved on a leash, making outdoor adventures with her a joy.

Oh, and if you happen to have deer in your vicinity, Elsa can be counted on to tell them to move on as she barks at and watches them from a safe distance inside her fenced yard.

Elsa's foster parents named her Elsa because her regal looks and graceful gait reminded them of Elsa the lioness, from the classic film Born Free. Her story is one of hope, transformation, and resilience.

And now she is ready for a compassionate forever home where her calm and loving spirit can shine. If you're looking for a loyal and affectionate companion who will bring unending joy to your life, Elsa might just be the dog for you!

Elsa is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, spayed, with no arthritis. She is heartworm positive and is undergoing treatment. Upon arrival into IAR Elsa had been extremely thin, but she has gradually been gaining weight and has regained her health.

Elsa's journey to IAR began on the Fourth of July when a Good Samaritan rescued her and her sister, and brought them to a rural shelter. Upon arrival they were very nearly starved. Her sister was adopted and this loss left Elsa feeling very dejected. IAR to the rescue!

Elsa is a vision of beauty with her large brown eyes and a coat adorned with several shades of brown. She has a bit of white and black on her muzzle.
