More about ELSA
Elsa came into our care originally as an ex- breeding female from a puppy farm.
She was rehomed with another dog, after this dog sadly passed away, the owners have been struggling with Elsa's behaviour and demeanour and felt it was best she came back to us.
Typical of an ex puppy farm dog, she struggles in new situations and is unsure of people she doesn't know, she very much stuck to one member of the household in her previous home and we would recommend multiple carers in a new set up who will all be part of her care.
Elsa relies heavily on other dogs and would need to live with another or a group, she has struggled to toilet and venture out without this company and had subsequently stopped going into the garden.
Elsa has previously briefly escaped the house however when outside and has then frozen and not known what to do next, due to her worried and easily startled nature, we would recommend at least two points of contact and would need a quieter area away from the hustle and bustle, would strongly recommend that considerations are given, especially when settling in, to avoid potential escape such as baby gates at the door, ensuring front gates are secure as examples.
Elsa will hide and avoid new people and she will need a set up where she can easily retreat and a quiet household where she can get the respite and comforts that she deserves,
Understanding and experience of the needs and expectations of dogs having this background will be needed for new owners of Elsa.
