ELSA was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved. ELSA is spayed, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm and tick disease tested negativeq and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 4 December 2016 and at the time of hr spay surgery on 16th January 2019, she weighed 47.00 pounds.. She is listed as a Labrador mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
ELSA is a wonderful happy go lucky girl. She is full of life, energy and love and would make a great family addition. She has been loving to all who have met her and the vets office fell in love with her when she went for her spay surgery. She has been great with a young teenage girl and is happy to just share in the love she has.
She does have a lot of energy so an active lifestyle is a must. As with all dogs basic obedience and general training is needed so that she can learn the new rules, boundaries and expectations of her new family and home.
I do not know how ELSA would be around cats or livestock.
She rides great in the car, walks great on the leash, is great with other dogs and people of all ages, she uses the dog door to get in and out to play or to do her business but she won't know to let her new family know she needs to go out, so a few accidents whilst she goes through this big transition should be expected and then if there are not any, it is a bonus :)
All dogs (except dogs saved from China) are available for adoption for an adoption fee of $550.
Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.
